Rebuilding for Their Future
CORRALES, N.M. – This past summer an updated development plan for Sandia View Academy was approved by the Texico Conference Executive Committee and by the academy board.
This plan provides for the construction of a new academy facility to accommodate students in grades 9-12, both in the greater Albuquerque area, and throughout the Texico Conference territory through the use of distance learning technology.
To prepare for the new academy facility, the plan also includes the demolition of all the buildings formerly used by the academy.
In anticipation of this new facility, a temporary solution was also approved to rehabilitate the old gymnasium and to install several modular buildings just west of the gym for use as an office and for classrooms.
The scope of this endeavor was really quite extensive. After not being used for nearly 10 years, the list of items that needed to be accomplished ranged from replacing the restroom fixtures to installing new carpet in many areas, painting the entire building, inside and out and installing a new SportCourt floor for physical education and the athletic program.
Many people worked very hard over the summer to get these facilities ready in time for the students to enjoy as the new school year began on August 20. It is exciting to witness the dramatic transformation of this building and also to see the students enjoying their school activities.
We look forward to the next steps in developing the new campus to continue to support the long-standing ministry of Sandia View Academy.
It is our prayer that God will greatly bless the administration, staff and students of Sandia View Academy throughout this school year and beyond.
