Manteca Adventist Christian School

About Our School



Our Philosophy
The Manteca Seventh-day Adventist School is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to provide a spiritually oriented education for children. We believe that true education develops the spiritual, mental, and physical powers of each student; preparing them for the joy of service in this life and for the higher joy of service in the life to come. To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to:
  • develop a personal relationship with God and his fellow men as stated in Matthew 2:37-39
  • master the basic academic skills
  • value labor, physical and mental, as the blessing God intended
  • cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as God intended.

A belief in the existence of the Creator God is fundamental in the teaching of Seventh-day Adventist schools.
