Welcome to Kitsap Adventist Christian School!
We believe that God has called us to provide a nurturing Christian environment where children are safely encouraged to enhance their relationship with God while growing in academics along with character-development, personal responsibility, good citizenship, social skills, and service to others. Our goal is to partner with our parents in this ministry of educational excellence, using the gifts that God has granted. Christ-centeredness is the core of all we do and we look forward to sharing with you the opportunities our small school offers.
Kitsap Adventist Christian School is operated as a joint mission of the Bremerton and Port Orchard Seventh-day Adventist churches to provide spiritual education for children from Transitional Kindergarten through grade 9. We have served the community since 1945 with quality, accredited education.
Mind, Body, Spirit
Kitsap Adventist Christian School provides students a rigorous academic curriculum in a low-stress environment. As an accredited part of Adventist Education, our approach is proven. ”In all grades, in school of all sizes, students in Adventist schools outperformed the national average in all subjects.” (NAD Office of Education. Cognitive Genesis Overview. Retrieved March 08,2018)
At Kitsap Adventist Christian School, students enjoy personalized attention from our certified teaching staff, allowing them to progress at their optimal pace for academic success.
Our multi-grade classrooms motivate younger students towards academic advancement while older students develop leadership skills. We prioritize hands-on learning. STEAM education, music instruction, art classes and fun field trips round out the curriculum.
At Kitsap Adventist Christian School, we believe in the importance of physical activity and that a healthy body contributes to our students’ academic success.
Students in grades Transition to Kindergarten – 9 enjoy regular recess time and regular P.E. classes on our rural acreage or in our large indoor gymnasium. Each classroom provides flexible seating, facilitating concentration during work times.
Several times a week we offer balanced, nutritious meals through our hot lunch program. Our science curriculum incorporates health education, helping students learn not only how the body functions, but how to best care for it.
We believe that each student is unique and of infinite value.
Our goal includes developing young people of outstanding moral character and fostering personal relationships with our Creator God. We reach these goals through:
- Bible-based holistic curriculum
- Creation-based science
- Regular chapel and Bible studies
- Interactions with our caring staff
In a time when our children are bombarded with negative messages and fear, Kitsap Adventist Christian School offers a safe, nurturing environment to grow and learn.
Students of all faiths are welcomed, accepted, and respected.
How to Support Our School
Tuition does not cover all of the school’s annual expenses. Together our two supporting churches each pay a subsidy to cover the 35% of our budget that is not covered by tuition which amounts to $166,210 annually. The generous financial support of the Bremerton and Port Orchard churches helps us keep our tuition rate lower than many other private schools in our area. Our budget also does not include large building projects or unforeseen building needs. For example in 2022 we had to make extensive repairs to our roof, remodeled two rooms, and added an awning over our outside picnic tables. These expenses alone totaled around $40,000. Thus our fundraising efforts try to help cover unexpected and/or large expenses.
