The theme for this year's, Alumni Weekend of Always Welcome. Always Family. comes from the belief that no matter how many days you attended SAS or SVA, whether you graduated or not, no matter how long it has been since you last visited, nor whether you have stayed in contact with your former classmates or faculty... that you are considered Alumni and part of the Spanish-American Seminary and Sandia View Academy family! Romans 15:5-7 encourages us to live in harmony with one another, unify in one voice to glorify God, and to welcome one another as Christ our Lord welcomes us for the glory of God. To this end, the Board of the SAS & SVA Alumni Association invites you to attend this year's Alumni Weekend, to be held in Corrales, NM the 2nd weekend of ABQ International Balloon Fiesta, October 10-12, 2019.
2019, 2014. 2009. 2004, 1999, 1994, 1989, 1984, 1979, 1974, 1969, 1964, 1959, 1954, 1949, 1944
The Alumnus of the Year Awards ceremony will be held each year during the Friday, annual Business Meeting during Homecoming weekend, the second weekend of October. The ceremony affords the Alumni Association the opportunity to honor, highlight, and profile accomplished alumni during the festive Homecoming weekend.
Revised SAS & SVA Constitution and By Laws was voted in during the Annual Business meeting, Friday, October 12, 2018. You can find this document on the "Official Documents" page.
SVA Alumni Board has voted to start highlighting different SVA Alumni on our website and also in our newsletters. We believe folks would like to hear about your life after graduating from or attending SVA. Email the following information [500-1000 words or less] to SVArocks@gmail.com:
You attended Sandia View Academy. You are SVA! You graduated from Sandia View Academy. You are SVA! You attend SVA now. You are SVA!
Check out our "I am SVA!" videos on YouTube
What unites us is SVA. Our connection is SVA. Our history converges at SVA. No matter your race, gender, culture, current or prior geographical location, current or prior denominational ties - YOU ARE SVA!
