Our MissionChrist is the Source of all Truth and the foundation of our curriculum. Our Christian teachers provide challenging academic courses in a nurturing and stimulating environment, empowering students to reach their maximum potential.
York Adventist Christian School is part of the world-wide Seventh-day Adventist educational system. As such, YACS operates on the belief that education involves more than the pursuit of a certain course of study. It means more than the preparation for the present life. Education has to do with the whole being and with the whole period of existence possible to man.
Through Christ and His Spirit, God determined to restore humanity from its lost state. Through the Bible, He has revealed His will to the world, a revelation that supersedes human reason. YACS’s primary purpose is to bring students to an understanding and acceptance of God’s plan of salvation and restoration through Jesus Christ.
Every human being is made in God’s image and although fallen, is endowed with attributes like those of the Creator. With this in mind, YACS seeks to nurture thinkers rather than followers of others’ thoughts, those eager to serve rather than seeking to be served, achievers who reach their highest potential, lovers of all that is true and noble, and who embrace and care for all of God’s children.
This kind of education imparts far more than academic knowledge—it is balanced development of the whole person. At YACS, our families and our churches cooperate together, with the influence of the Holy Spirit, to prepare learners for citizenship on this earth and the New Earth to come.
