The mission of the Minnetonka Christian Academy is to provide a quality, Seventh-day Adventist education that empowers children to become lifelong learners who KNOW Christ, SHARE love, and SERVE others.
Minnetonka Christian Academy will be recognized as a Christ-centered, high-quality, Pre-K to 9th grade school. Using innovation and results-driven practices, we will provide students with a wholistic education that encompasses spirituality, accredited academics, social/emotional development, and extra-curricular opportunities. As a core ministry of the Minnetonka Seventh-day Adventist church, we will establish a strong financial foundation that will provide confidence to our community.
OUR CORE VALUES
Philosophy of Adventist Education
The Seventh-day Adventist Church recognizes God as the ultimate source of existence, truth, and power. In the beginning God created in His image a perfect humanity, a perfection later marred by sin. Education in its broadest sense is a means of returning human beings to their original relationship with God. The distinctive characteristics of this Adventist worldview, built around creation, the fall, redemption, and re-creation, are derived from the Bible and the inspired writings of Ellen G. White.
The aim of true education is to restore human beings into the image of God as revealed by the life of Jesus Christ. Only through the guidance of the Holy Spirit can this be accomplished. An education of this kind imparts far more than academic knowledge. It fosters a balanced development of the whole person-spiritual, physical, intellectual, and social-emotional-a process that spans a lifetime. Working together, homes, schools, and churches cooperate with divine agencies to prepare learners to be good citizens in this world and for eternity.
