Welcome to Spencerville Adventist Academy’s Resource Department, where we are dedicated to nurturing a supportive and inclusive learning environment for all students. Our Resource Department at SAA is not just a service; it’s a commitment to constant growth. We take pride in our continuous pursuit of knowledge, training, and academic advancement to ensure the best possible education for both our staff and youth.
At SAA, we understand the diverse learning needs of our students, and we are constantly evolving to meet those needs effectively. One of our key strengths lies in our partnerships with local public school systems in particular the system in which our school is located – Montgomery County Public Schools. These collaborations enable us to stay abreast of the latest developments and innovations in accessibility for different learning requirements. By fostering these continued partnerships, SAA remains at the forefront of educational inclusivity, ensuring that every differently-abled student receives the tailored support they require to demonstrate educational achievement.
