About Our School

Mission Statement

Beacon Christian School exists to show children Jesus, nurture their relationship with Him, teach them to think, and empower them to love and serve others.

Our Philosophy

Beacon Christian School operates in harmony with the Seventh-day Adventist Church, Office of Education in the North American Division, 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.

The faculty, school board, and churches associated with Beacon Christian School are committed to a quality Christian education that:

  • Actively seeks to integrate Jesus Christ into all facets of learning
  • Meets the mental, physical, social, and spiritual needs of the whole person
  • Maximizes the full potential of each unique student through active participation in learning

Our Foundational Goals

Together with the family of each student, we seek to accomplish this for each student by creating a safe learning environment that:

  • Cultivates dependence on God’s Word, the Bible, for guidance in daily life
  • Teaches the great themes of the Bible
  • Leads to an awareness of the reality of God and His interest in the things of everyday living
  • Instills the ideals of integrity, honesty, purity, dependability, neatness, and punctuality
  • Fosters the qualities of self-respect and respect for others
  • Utilizes a variety of learning experiences, including current technology, while not jeopardizing classroom discipline
  • Takes into account the learning style of each young person, thus enabling progress at his/her own rate and training for future education
  • Develops a sense of responsibility for one’s own behaviors during school activities with the goal of preparing each for eventual responsible citizenship
  • Encourages creativity and appropriate, independent thinking and communication skills
