Yakima Adventist® Christian School

We invite you to join us on a journey to excellence!



Begin the Journey to Excellence in Preschool

The YACS Prekindergarten Program provides a service to families by providing:
1. A loving Christian atmosphere.
2. A positive and fun approach to learning.
3. A safe, well organized program so children can grow academically, physically, socially, and spiritually.
4. A nurturing environment where independence and responsibility are developed, while growing closer to Jesus.

Our Students

YACS  Preschool is open to families who wish to have their four or five year old children in a whole or half day Christian program. 
1. All students must be potty trained.
2. All students must be four years old before January 1, 2023. 

Our Philosophy

Yakima  Adventist  Christian  School  (YACS) prepares students to positively change their world. Through excellent academics, moral values and community service, we seek to acquaint students with great literature, art, and music to develop an appreciation for “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely…” (Philippians 4:8).
