Dear Parents & Guardians

Thank you for choosing AUP Academy to be the

be able to send them in this institution, and because
of your faith to Adventist Education you are still
here. It is my prayer that we will continue to work
hand in hand, as partners, in developing our youth
to be trained for service, excelling in academics, hav-
ing a Christlike character and getting ready to in-
herit the kingdom of heaven!

With prayers,
Mrs. Ardel V. Sarmiento
