About Us

What sets us apart?

Mountain View Christian Academy

Mountain View Christian Academy has been awarded maximum accreditation by the state of New Mexico and the Southwest Conference Education Department. Our school is one of five Adventist schools operated in New Mexico and is part of a nation-wide network of 800 schools in North America.  Today you'll find Adventist schools in nearly 150 countries. 85,000 teachers, 1.5 million students, 7,500 schools—the Adventist school system is one of the largest Christian educational systems in the world.

We are located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Our highly qualified and certified teachers are wholly committed to providing quality education in which students preform at their highest potential in all subject areas and spiritually. Our teacher-student ratio allows for personalized lessons and individual time with the students. We use MAP testing which provide immediate feedback and allows the teacher to help students to get the attention they need in their areas of need. 

Our ultimate goal is to help the students find a personal connection with God and an understanding that all wisdom comes from Him. Students at our school are motivated to provide quality work in which they demonstrated their highest potential academically and spiritually. 

Growing Spiritually

We exist to help students grow in their love for Jesus. While spiritual growth can’t be measured and quantified with numbers, we do see it happening every day. It starts with our commitment to making Christ the center of all we do––not just the subject of a single Bible class. And it continues through our focus on the Bible as the sole guide for our beliefs and behavior as Protestant Christians. We invite you to visit our campus and experience how our teachers and staff model their love for God and nurture it in our students.

Our Bible textbook is — the Bible.

Growing Academically

Our goal is to develop Christians with wisdom and critical thinking, not just knowledge and reflection of others' thoughts. So we’ve structured our academic program to put God first and we find that, like Adventist schools of all sizes across the country, this results in students who grow academically at a higher rate than their peers in other schools (see the next paragraph). It really is true that when we “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, all these things will be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33) To learn more about the specific results of our school, schedule an Education Success Consult with our principal.

Students in Adventist schools outperform. In a three-year study of 51,000+ students in Adventist schools (kindergarten through high school), researchers documented that they outperformed the national average, att all grade levels, in schools of all sizes, and in all subjects.

Students in Adventist schools overachieve. Additionally, researchers compared student performance on standardized tests with what would be predicted based on their Cognitive Abilities Test scores, and found they performed above what would be predicted.

Students in Adventist schools gain even more with time. One of the most dramatic findings is that students who transferred to Adventist schools saw a marked improvement in test scores. Furthermore, the longer students are in Adventist schools, the better their achievements and abilities.

Growing Physically

Making healthy choices is a way of honoring our bodies as gifts from God.  Healthy lifestyle choices promote learning and growing.  Good nutrition, exercise, rest, fresh air, water, sunshine, temperance and trust in God are eight natural ways our Heavenly Father provides for our well-being and they help build a foundation for good health in the years to come.

Growing Socially

Loving and serving others is part of God’s plan for each of us and something we practice daily.  As we interact with each other here at school and as we practice service in our community, we are guided by Paul’s words, “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” (Ephesians 4:2) While we are not perfect, we are constantly aiming to be more Christ-like with each other and to serve our community.  Come see how this influences our students with a visit to our campus.
