About Us

The Tracy SDA Christian School was established in 1953 when our two-room school was built on the property between 20th and 21st Streets.  At that time, our school was also used for church services until the Tracy SDA Church was completed in 1957.  During the first years of school, a local physician, Dr. Erwin Henning, served as the school’s first board chairman.  In 1970 a new gymnasium with full basketball court, kitchen, and restroom facilities was added.  Since its origin, other additions have been made to the school grounds, including a third classroom, computer lab, and large playground area.  Today our school continues its commitment to education of the highest standards thanks to the dedication of many parents, teachers, and volunteers who have committed themselves to our mission.

Mission Statement
The mission of the Tracy SDA Christian School is to provide a Christ-centered, superior education that empowers students with the wisdom, knowledge, and determination to reach their God-given potential. With the caring partnership of parents, faculty, and local church, we strive to guide our students to develop awareness of their civic responsibilities and rights in service to God, country, and the community.

Our Philosophy
The Tracy SDA Christian School is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to provide a spiritually oriented education for children. A belief in the existence of the Creator God is fundamental in the philosophy of Seventh-day Adventist schools. We respect His divine authority and recognize His intervention in human affairs. 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.

Our school provides education for children, based on Biblical principles. In doing so, the school seeks to:

  1. Promote spiritual and moral development.
  2. Maintain a high standard of scholastic excellence.
  3. Teach basic principles of health and physical well-being.
  4. Develop the ability to think clearly and logically.
  5. Instruct in practical skills and the dignity of labor.
  6. Develop an appreciation for the fine arts.
  7. Encourage creativity.
  8. Teach the responsibility and privileges of good citizenship.
  9. Instill respect for the worth of the individual.
  10. Prepare students for service to God, church, country, community, and fellow man.

The Tracy SDA Christian School operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
