Port Charlotte Seventh-day Adventist (PCAS) was established in 1970 by the Port Charlotte Seventh-day Adventist church to provide students with a Christ-centered Seventh-day Adventist education. Currently PCAS offers classes to students in kindergarten through high school.
The mission of Port Charlotte Adventist School is to create a Christian environment that partners with families to:
Inspire children to a relationship with Jesus
Cultivate the balanced relationship of each student
Equip them for academic success
- Empower them for compassionate service
Port Charlotte Adventist School exists primarily to instill in its students the message of Christ. We desire to develop in our youth the character of God, leading each student to a closer personal connection with Christ, a better knowledge of God’s word, a desire to share and act upon knowledge received, excellence in intellectual attainment, social ease, and respect and care of the body. All of this will prepare for this life and for eternity.
True education means more than the pursual of a certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being, and with the whole period of existence possible to man. It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come.
Port Charlotte Adventist School is accredited by the Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, an approved accrediting association of the Florida Association of Academic Non-public Schools (FAANS). FAANS is an affiliate member of the Council for American Private Education (CAPE) and is recognized by the State of Florida.
Port Charlotte Adventist students, with help from their parents, will be expected to respect the religious ideals of the Church, respect and cooperate with all school personnel, and respect school property and the rights of others. Students will also be expected to abstain from activities which destroy the development of the spiritual, intellectual, physical, and social life.
Objectives of a Christian Education
To help students develop a philosophy of life based upon the recognition of Christ as their personal Savior. To learn to enjoy a daily walk with God and give each student a desire to share his knowledge of God’s word and his personal experience with Him. To encourage each student to realize the importance of commitment of service to church, country and community.
To assist students in developing habits of accuracy, discrimination, intellectual curiosity, research, good judgment, and the ability to express themselves.
To help the student develop neuromuscular skills which can be carried into leisure time activities. The skills will be taught in a way that will give each child a feeling of success and help develop social and Christian character traits.
To teach that each person, whether an adult or a student, is a child of God and must be valued and respected.
