Jefferson Christian Academy

Building Character for Eternity


In co-operation with the Holy Spirit, the Mission of Jefferson Christian Academy is to foster in our students an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, as their foundation for service to God and Mankind in the temporal world of the present, and as their passport to wider service in the eternal world of the future.

This is accomplished through an integrated educational program that includes five distinct components:


(a) spiritual/ethical

(b) mental/intellectual

(c) physical/health

(d) vocational/work & social/leadership.

Jefferson Christian Academy seeks to provide a Christ-centered curriculum and program of activities, using the inspired counsel given to the church as well as appropriate secular theories, in its implementation. Our philosophy is to teach the beliefs, ideals, and customs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as well as to lead its students to ascertain and accept, in practice and sentiment, the mind and will of God as revealed in His Word. This unique educational approach is based on the belief of a harmonious development of the physical, mental, social and spiritual elements within each student. The school seeks to develop an attitude of service in each student. This concept of community is stressed in order to develop a well-rounded member of a global society and above all else, loyal, conscientious Christians. Jefferson Academy, in cooperation with the home and the church, accepts as its basic evangelistic tasks the education and redemption of its students.

Staff members have different backgrounds and teaching styles with a common desire to show God's love to their students and help them secure a place in his kingdom. This committed faculty and staff understand the importance of fostering emotional and psychological support for students.

Living in a boarding school environment promotes the building of interpersonal relationship skills.
