Dear Mustang Families, Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! My name is Adam Camacho, proud principal of San Dieguito High School Academy. It is my absolute honor to enthusiastically welcome you, and it is with my deepest gratitude that I thank you for choosing SDA. As I begin my 19th year in the San Dieguito Union High School District and embark on my second year as principal of SDA, I can’t help but think how fortunate I am to serve a learning community that is extremely student centered and is passionately supported by parents, foundation, alumni, community members, and, of course, our award winning teaching and support staff to decidedly remain one of the finest high schools in the state. SDA is an amazing place with a magical culture that celebrates all students. It is a place where students are encouraged to explore and express who they are in a nurturing, physically and emotionally safe environment. It is an institution with a rich history, a tradition of excellence, and proven record for providing all students with rigorous academics, athletics, clubs, leadership, community engagement, and many other enrichment opportunities that are hosted in and out of the classroom. SDA does an excellent job and prides itself on preparing its students for college, career, and beyond. SDA is a dream school — it is OUR school. Welcome home, Mustangs!
