If you have questions for your teachers or want to talk about the class schedule, come this Monday, 12 Aug from 6:30-8:30 PM to Meet The Teacher and Registration Day.

MyAccess Writing Program

This year students will use the MyAccess Writing Program to improve their writing skills. This web-based program will help students by providing instant feedback on writing assignments. It also includes a large database of examples and information for students to reference. We're excited to start using this program for grades 3-10. Click here for more info.

Distance Learning Pilot Program

This year we are privileged to be one of two schools taking part in the Distance Learning Pilot Program funded and directed by the Texas Conference Education Office. This endeavor connects our school and the Adventist Christian Academy of Texas (ACAT/Conroe, TX) via a high definition conferencing network system. Two courses are offered this year: Computer Applications (Ms. Carrie Hall/SMAJA) and Biology (Mr. Arthur Miller/ACAT). We are excited to begin this joint venture with our sister academy, and are proud to provide our students with a program that is the wave of the future in education. We ask for your prayers in the success of this pilot program.


Now that we have a full-time Music Director (Mr. Vargas), SMAJA is looking to start a band. All we need are instruments (minor detail :0). If you own or know of someone who owns an instrument they would like to loan/donate to the school, please contact SMAJA immediately. We are also open to other suggestions on how to acquire instruments for the school.

Mr. Vargas is also offering 30-minute private instrumental lessons. Please contact him at for further details.
