Elementary

Welcome to San Jacinto Christian Academy’s Elementary school. It is our mission to partner with parents in training children to know and love Jesus Christ, to follow Him in life and to one day be positive, productive members of the coming generation. We strive to have the church, school and home all speak the same message into children’s live to best equip them to face life’s challenges.
 
We see each child as being unique, fearfully and wonderfully made by our loving God. Our teachers provide a structured, caring environment that encourages each child’s unique abilities to develop. The Honorable Character program is used throughout the buildings to refine godly character in each child. This together with a rigorous curriculum and purposeful Biblical integration nurtures the development of the whole child. 
 
Thank you for becoming part of the San Jacinto Christian Academy family!  We are honored to partner with you in Kingdom education – disciplining children who will have a personal relationship with God and have a renewed mind in order to engage the culture for Christ.
 
Celebrating Jesus,
 
Amy Sternenberg
