South Bay Junior Academy is located in the heart of the South Bay. It is a Seventh-day Adventist Christian school which sits on 3.9 acres in West Torrance and has served the South Bay community since 1964 with caring and qualified teachers and staff.
We put the edge in education offering a full academic program to students from Kindergarten through the 8th grade. It is a part of the world wide Adventist school system, and is accredited by the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists and WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges.)
We recognize our students unique gifts. Our staff understands and promotes the concept of multiple intelligence in which everyone has unique gifts and different ways of learning.
Healthy practices of wellbeing round out a day at South Bay Junior Academy. Students are given daily opportunities to strengthen their bodies and learn good sportsmanship in a supervised environment during physical education activities and natural movement.
A daily, hot lunch program provides a healthy alternative to typical school lunch programs with vegetarian, plant-based meals at affordable rates.
Weekly students engage in chapel to strengthen their spiritual relationship with God and enjoy the mental clarity worship and prayer bring.
South Bay Junior Academy is a school that operates like a family and is a place students love coming to; to learn, grow, visualize, imagine, worship, master and enjoy!
