Our Mission & Philosophy

Mission Statement

South Hills Academy strives to provide a Christ Centered atmosphere that enables students to become socially engaged, effective communicators, and critical thinkers in a global setting.

Our Vision

We envision a world in which the quality education students receive at South Hills Academy prepares them to be well-rounded citizens with a biblical worldview who will be successful leaders in their respective communities.

About South Hills Academy

For over 60 years, South Hills Academy has maintained a reputation for high academic achievement. Though each of our four schools features its own personality and cognitive-level program, we continue to operate as one cohesive family – showcased throughout the school year by several whole-academy activities that brings together students, family members, and staff from all of our programs. At SHA, students are able to develop from age 2 to college-ready young adults.

Another major aspect of SHA that bonds all four schools together is our overall philosophy. We focus on guiding and supporting students in their academic, social, and character growth. And we do this primarily with our cross-curricular, project-based approach that aims for maximum student (and staff) engagement so that students “learn by doing.” Students who have purpose and the opportunity to actively pursue that purpose thrive in their learning. Please browse our website to see how this approach works in each school.

Please come visit us to experience for yourself the family environment and active learning that make SHA a welcoming, warm, fun, energetic, exciting, and excellent place to be!

In West Covina’s golden rays,

South Hills Academy paves the ways,

Five outcomes guide their heart and soul,

As students strive to reach their goal.

Christ Centered, first and true,

Through work and play, His love imbues,

A family bond, His teachings guide,

To forge strong adults, side by side.

Effective Communicators, they become,

Through projects, words, and wisdom won,

To read, to write, to listen, speak,

Their voices strong, their minds unique.

Socially Engaged, they learn and share,

A world of kindness, love, and care,

Respect and value they’ll embrace,

In every heart, a better place.

Critical Thinkers, skillful, keen,

To navigate the truth unseen,

They’ll question, analyze, and weigh,

To find the light, the rightful way.

Global Citizens, they’ll emerge,

Where worlds unite, and cultures merge,

Promoting peace, respect, and love,

Their actions guided from above.

In West Covina’s warm embrace,

South Hills Academy takes its place,

A haven where bright minds take flight,

And futures forged, in wisdom’s light.
