YACS Continues Steadfast Mission

August 20, 2016 | Kelly Kwon

In a world of change and adversity, Yakima Adventist Christian School (YACS) in Yakima, Wash., offers a steadfast mission to teach students about Christ and His will in their lives. Our mission is, in fact, to enable 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. This is a tall order, but our deeply committed teachers, from preschool through 10th grade, strive each day in fulfilling that mission. 

We are thankful for our teachers who enhance the overall program by providing educational experiences through outdoor school at Camp MiVoden, weeklong science and history trips, and backpacking trips. In addition to stellar academics, YACS offers many opportunities for students to embrace a life of service to others. This is evidenced in mission trips, participation in local church services, outreach to neighboring areas and nursing homes, plus collaboration with peers during weekly school assemblies and worship. YACS also  affords a fun environment for students through in-house school events coordinated by an active home and school team, before-school and after-school care, and exciting summer day camp programs.

This year was a banner year, but we definitely look forward to the 2016–17 school year as we welcome a new staff member. Alyson Atwood will be the new music teacher who will be teaching classroom music, beginner band, concert band and concert choir. 

If you are interested in a school that focuses on the important mission of providing a biblically based, holistic, mission-driven educational experience, please contact Yakima Adventist Christian School at 509-966-1933 or visit our website at yacsschool.org. We look forward to hearing from you!

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. (Romans 12:2 NKJV)
