About Us

 

 

 

 

Welcome to the Yakima Adventist Christian School (YACS) website.  We are glad you are here! 

The Adventist school system began in the mid-1800s in Battle Creek, Michigan.  This same school system now  teaches over 1.2 million students in nearly 45 countries worldwide.  The first school here in Yakima opened its doors in 1903, well over 100 years ago.  We have been in our current location off Pecks Canyon and among the orchards since 1998.  Our beautiful setting is a great backdrop to grow our children in. 

Our mission is to enable our students to develop a vibrant relationship with Christ.  We encourage an environment where students feel safe to grow spiritually, academically, emotionally, socially, and physically in order to be equipped with the skills for life and eternity.

We hope you are able to find the specific information you need as you look at our website. If you have any unanswered questions or would like more information, please contact us.  We would love to here from you!

Mission Statement

The Yakima Adventist Christian School family exists to show children Jesus, nurture their love for Him and others, teach them to think, and empower them to serve.

YACS Mission Statement: "Our mission is to enable our students to develop a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ. We encourage an environment where students feel safe to grow spiritually, academically, emotionally, socially, and physically in order to be equipped with the skills for life and eternity."

Our Philosophy

The Yakima Adventist Christian School is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to provide a spiritually oriented education for children. A belief in the existence of the Creator God is fundamental in the philosophy of Seventh-day Adventist schools. We respect His divine authority and recognize His intervention in human affairs. We believe that true education develops the spiritual, mental, and physical powers of each student; preparing them for the joy of service in this life and for the higher joy of service in the life to come. To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to:

  • develop a personal relationship with God and his fellow men as stated in Matthew 2:37-39
  • master the basic academic skills
  • value labor, physical and mental, as the blessing God intended
  • cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessing God intended.

The Yakima Adventist Christian School is operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
