Principal's Message


Veterans Memorial Academy Parents,


Welcome to the 9th grade academy and the home of the mighty Greyhounds! My name is Manuela Lopez, and I will be serving as your principal for the 2022-2023 school year! As a product of San Benito schools and proud graduate of the class of ’85, I know that with a strong academic foundation all things are possible.


The faculty and staff of VMA will continue to work together to make sure your son or daughter is in a safe environment and getting the best education possible. Our teachers have received professional development that will enhance their lessons to meet the demands of today’s students and workforce.


With your support, your son or daughter will graduate as part of the Senior Class of 2026 and will earn college credits through our dual enrollment program. We encourage all students to sign up for dual enrollment and start paving their way to earning a college degree.  At VMA, we are committed to be Better Every Day in Every Way to help our students succeed!


Sincerely Yours,

Manuela Lopez
