Pacific Point Christian Schools (Pac Point) is an educational ministry. We exist to provide a high quality Christian education, Preschool through 12th grade, to the Santa Clara, San Benito, and Monterey Counties. Pac Point began in 1995 and continues to provide academic excellence with a strong spiritual foundation.
Your child will learn to be caring, as modeled by a staff that invests time in each child by discovering their learning styles, their strengths, and their challenges. Each student will learn to respect one another, as modeled by our staff.
Your child will learn to be a leader both in the classroom and on the campus. Many leadership opportunities are available at Pac Point and we gently encourage to lead courageously.
Your child will learn to be accountable Pac Point students and grow in character, learn to take responsibility for their actions, and strive to be strong morally and academically.
Your child will learn to be a scholar and will learn the satisfaction of an assignment well done and on time. They will advance in reading, writing and arithmetic, as well as the sciences, the arts, and physical education.
Your child will learn to be a steadfast disciple of Jesus Christ by being discipled by mature Christian believers who are here because they love children and want to mentor them to be Christ-like in every area of their life. Students are taught that the Bible is the source of all Truth and to depend upon the promises found within God’s Word.
To teach the necessity of being born again of the Spirit of God by receiving Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior (John 3:16)
To teach that growth in the Christian life depends upon fellowship with God through Bible study, Christian fellowship, and prayer. (Acts 2:42)
To devote time to spiritual devotion and study. Bible lessons, stories, and songs are included in the daily activities. (Psalm 119:45)
To make Christ known to those around us (friends, family, etc.), by training students to live and share the abundant Christian life, and by providing an academically superior program that will enable students to excel in whatever occupation and sphere of influence they choose.
To maintain open communication with parents and to offer direct instruction, assistance, and resources as they fulfill their responsibility for the overall education of their children.
To emphasize basic academic skills, technology, literacy, communication and interpersonal skills that will enable students to excel in whatever occupation and sphere of influence to which the Lord calls them.
The Scriptures (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20, 21)
The Bible is God’s Word to all men. It was written by human authors, who were under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it is inspired by God, it is without error in the original writings, and is the complete and only supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
The Triune God (Mark 12:29; Matthew 28:18,19; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
There is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The Person and Work of Jesus Christ (John 1:1,14,18; 5:17,18; 8:58; 10:30-33, Rom. 3:24,25) Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died on the cross, a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is now our High Priest and Advocate.
The Holy Spirit (Acts 5:3,4; 2 Corinthians 3:18; John 14:16, 17: 16:7-15)
The Holy Spirit is equal in the trinity of the Father and the Son, thus making him God. The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and is to convict men of sin, regenerate the believer, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.
The Nature of Man (Genesis 1:26; 3:1-17; Romans 5:12; 3:22,23; Ephesians 2:12) Man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and became alienated from God, acquired a sin nature and incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death which is separation from God.
The Way to God (Eph. 2:8-10; Romans 3:24; 1 Peter 1:18,19; 2:24; Titus 3:5,6) Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his own sin and failure by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offering of forgiveness can man experience justification and forgiveness of sin.
The Second Coming of Christ (1Thess. 4:13-18; Acts 1:11; John 14:1-4; Rev.20: 6) The Lord Jesus Christ will return to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. His return will be personal, visible, and pre-millennial. The expectation of this, our Blessed Hope, has a vital bearing on our personal life and service as believers.
The Resurrection of the Dead (John 5:29; Mark 9:43-48; 2Thess. 1:8,9; Rev. 20:11-15; 21:1-4) All mankind will be bodily resurrected. Everyone will either exist eternally in union with God through forgiveness and salvation or exist eternally separated from God by sin and self choice.
The Church (1 Cor. 12:12-27; Eph. 1:22,23; Col. 1:17,18; Hebrews 10:25) The true Church of Jesus Christ is a spiritual organism made up of all persons who, through faith in Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit. This spiritual organism is called the body of Christ of which Jesus Christ is the Head. In addition, all members of this spiritual organism are directed by Scripture to associate themselves in local assemblies for the purpose of edification and evangelism.
The Sacraments (Acts 8:38,39; Romans 6:1-11; Matthew 26:26-30; 1 Cor. 11:24-32) God has given two sacraments for believers to share in. One is “Water Baptism” as a testimony of death to sin and resurrection to new life. The other is the “Lord’s Supper” which is a memorial service, setting forth in a symbolic manner the life and death of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Pac Point is accredited for Grades K-12 by the Schools Commission of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Accreditation through WASC helps assure that the school’s purpose is appropriate and being accomplished through a viable education program; is a trustworthy institution for student learning. It also validates the integrity of the school’s program and transcripts, and fosters the ongoing improvement of the school’s programs and operations to support student learning.
ACSI schools seek accreditation to validate their quality and verify that they are striving for excellence based on a solid Christian philosophy of education foundation.
The ACSI accreditation protocol is unique in two major ways: (1) It probes the spiritual aspects of each component of the organization and (2) it addresses the educational quality and integrity of the organization. The latter addresses the issues demonstrating that the school is true to its own statements of philosophy, mission, and goals and that it is meeting the standards of quality and effectiveness.
In a move that dramatically expanded and enhanced our mission to provide the residents of Santa Clara, San Benito and Monterey counties with quality college preparatory Christian education programs, Pacific West Christian Academy and Anchorpoint Christian School have joined forces to become the new Pacific Point Christian Schools (Pac Point). Pac Point is fully accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Western Association of Schools & Colleges (WASC), the same agency that accredits all public high schools, colleges and universities. Originally founded in 1995, Pacific Point Christian Schools is the culmination of years of prayer and planning by the pastors and congregation of South Valley Community Church. This strategic partnership enables us to offer a comprehensive, college preparatory curriculum serving a diversity of student learning needs in a nurturing, Christ-centered environment for preschool through high school aged students.
Same Great PreK and Elementary Programs
For our Pre-School and Elementary programs, only the name changed. Students and their families can expect the same faculty and curriculum that have set the standard for quality Christian Early Education in the local community since 1995. Providing a strong Biblical and academic foundation, the Pac Point PreK program (approx. ages 3-5) will continue to be offered on our Kelton Campus at South Valley Community Church; the Elementary program (Grades K-5) will remain at the original Mantelli Campus.
College Preparatory Junior High and High School
A dynamic new college preparatory Junior High and High School is located on a Pacheco Pass campus in Gilroy. Offering grades 6th through 12th, it greatly enhances the schools’ academic, athletic, extra-curricular and spiritual learning opportunities. The sprawling eight-acre campus features upgraded facilities, larger classrooms, a dedicated 100-seat chapel and stage, student café, student quad area, and recording studio. New athletic facilities include locker rooms, weight room, athletic fields and sports courts for football, soccer, baseball, volleyball, handball, basketball, track & field, and cheerleading.
Building On Our Strengths
This merger will help to ensure our ability to deliver on our mission. On each of our three campuses, Pacific Point Christian Schools will strive to help students discover God’s purpose for their lives and to fulfill their God-given potential in school and in life by providing quality Christian school programs. It will provide the resources to better serve a diversity of student learning needs – all in an exceptionally positive, Christ-centered learning community focused on individual student success. Upgraded facilities and small classes will allow for ample individual student attention and enhance the strong parent-teacher partnerships for which all our schools are prized.
