The mission of South Texas Christian Academy (STCA) is to promote a redemptive relationship between each student and Jesus Christ and facilitate spiritual, academic, social, physical and vocational growth through the provision of an environment in which Christian nurture may take place. South Texas Christian Academy is dedicated to the fulfilment of one great purpose, " to restore in man the image of his maker, to being him back to the perfection in which he was created, to promote the develpment pf body, mind and soul, that the divine purpose of his creation might be realized" Education, p.
15. Adventist education places a high estimate on the infinite worth of every individual and seeks to provide a climate in which positive self-image can be developed.
We endeavour to provide opportunities for students to secure a preparation that will enable them to live successfully and productively.
Students are encouraged to take an active interest in making their communities better places to live, to appreciate cultural and scientific advances of the age, and to develop positive attitudes toward useful labor and humanity.
Each student is challenged to develop a sense of mission for giving the gospel message to the world in preparation for the soon return of Jesus.
