Mission Statement

About our School

The purpose of the Veterans Memorial Academy is to provide support for first time ninth graders transitioning from middle school to the larger and academically challenging San Benito High School.  Our special academy classrooms, located in separate areas from the ninth grade classrooms, are currently open to students in grades 9-12 allowing them opportunities to experience real world settings in the career fields of health sciences, law & research, and engineering & technology.
