Mission Statement

The mission of Port Naz Christian Academy is to provide families in our community with a Christ-centered, Biblically based education which partners with parents in the nurturing and development of their children. Our desire is to prepare children for a life long journey of learning: spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically in a warm loving environment. We’re committed to excellence in education, character development, and service to God and others.

Statement of Purpose

The purpose of Port Naz Christian Academy is to provide an educational experience and quality care for children ages 2 – 6 years of age. We provide a safe, secure place for your child to grow and learn. Each child is viewed as God’s unique creation and is encouraged to progress on their own developmental path as they discover the wonders of God’s world around them. The children are surrounded by a Christian atmosphere which promotes respect, self-discipline and the ability to make good choices. Our program includes reading readiness activities, pre-math skills, art, music, science, play experiences, Bible stories, songs, daily prayer in our classrooms and chapel once a week.

Philosophy of Christian Education

We believe that the basic foundation for a Christian education is the Word of God and the main source of all knowledge is found in the scriptures. We believe that all scripture is given by the inspiration of God and is profitable for reproof, for correction and for instruction in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16) Our philosophy of education will therefore affect our curriculum, the methods of teaching, the teachers and thus setting the atmosphere for the entire school environment.

We believe that children are truly a “gift from God” (Psalm 127:3) and that it is a God given privilege for parents and teachers to “train up a child in the way he should go.” (Proverbs 22:6) In an atmosphere of discipline and love, we present academic skills and spiritual truths to the child, so that they might develop Christ-like attitudes and actions. Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth and the life.” (John 14:6) and we believe in Him “are hidden all treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” (Colossians 2:3)
