Great Academics, Great Teachers! My children all went to Yakima Adventist Christian School and I'm glade they did. They excelled academically, grew spiritually, and made some great lasting friendships. Teachers were always available to help with questions and concerns. I highly recommend this school!

This school is great. My student left 10th grade prepared for college through the Running Start Program. I love the support the staff gives the students and parents. The academic quality is well above average!

Preschool will begin this fall! What a great addition to a great school. High academic standards with a Christian atmosphere! The small classroom size helps students get the individualized help they need. Check it out!

Technically, I'm no longer a student at YACS, but I was a student there for 8 years (3rd through 10th grades), and it was the best 8 years of my life. I owe who I am to the amazing faculty and staff at Yakima Adventist Christian School. I home-schooled my last two years of high school, and during that time I also worked at YACS as the assistant librarian. When I have kids of my own someday, they will most certainly go to YACS. I wouldn't want it any other way.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
