Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Pacific Harbor Christian School is an extension of the ministry of Harbor Christian Center. As such, it exists to bring children into the knowledge of their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
By providing a quality Christian education for both the children of members and non-members of Harbor Christian Center, we provide an environment in which spiritual, intellectual, emotional and social growth can take place. We provide also for the development of physical skills and the expression of each child's unique personality and talents. We believe in encouraging each child to work to his full potential, while recognizing varying levels of ability.
The basis for a healthy and positive self-image lies in the knowledge that we are the beloved children of God, redeemed from sin by the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross and equipped to succeed in the life through Him.
