San Jacinto Christian Academy began when a pastor and a group of parents believed there was a better way to educate children. Since its inception in 1982, the Academy has strived to be distinctively Christian in our approach to education. SJCA is an independent non-denominational school governed by a self-perpetuating Board of Trustees. A loving and devoted faculty is committed to teaching each subject matter from a biblical worldview. Teachers regularly pray for students and facilitate opportunities for students to share their concerns and pray for each other. Students participate in daily Bible classes, weekly chapel services and regular service projects.
San Jacinto Christian Academy’s mission statement reflects our desire to be an institution that affects Amarillo and the surrounding communities in a Christ-like way. SJCA is the largest private Christian school in the Texas Panhandle which consists of twenty-three counties. The school’s constituency is comprised of a broad socio-economic range and families who attend over sixty different evangelic churches. Through the admissions process, parents must come to the understanding that the home, school and church work together in raising the child. SJCA is a covenant based school in which at least one of the parents must be a born again believer. The school’s goal is to come alongside the home and church in guiding a student in a Christ-centered life.
