Mrs. Susan Vlach, Principal

A warm welcome to all from South Bay Junior Academy! Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you are inspired by what you learn about our school.

South Bay Junior Academy has operated at the same location since 1964. Our students are fortunate to feel the South Bay’s ocean breeze on their almost four acre campus two miles from the sand in Redondo Beach. In fact, the “Seabreeze” is the name of our weekly newsletter and our school yearbook. We commit to making this stable and time-tested school a loving, friendly and safe environment.

Our Mission and Vision give you the backbone and philosophy of our school program. While teaching to the “whole child” (mental, physical, social and spiritual), we are blessed to have a teaching staff that looks for the unique strengths of their students. Classrooms are “brain-friendly” with teachers who attempt to understand how their students learn while offering them different avenues to achieve.

The Christian emphasis of South Bay Junior Academy is evident in our goal of strong character development. We expect our students to be successful in their social and spiritual growth leading to their embracing of the biblical admonition to “Be ye kind one to another.” We hope that this school community will have a ripple effect on the larger South Bay community, and that our students will lead the way in peace-making.

Please visit the various pages of our website to find out why we are so proud of our school!

Mrs. Susan Vlach
Principal
