Galt Adventist School
Galt Adventist Christian School exists to assist our students in arranging their priorities to seek first a developing personal relationship with Jesus Christ so that a balanced excellence is encouraged in spiritual commitment, in academic achievement, and in physical training and in social development.
Galt Adventist Christian School is part of the education system of the Northern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, accredited by the Association of Seventh-day Adventist Schools under the National Council for Private School Accreditation.
It is supported financially by the Northern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, the Galt Seventh-day Adventist Church, and student tuition.
The School and church are on the same campus. The School is a full elementary program for grades one through eight in two classrooms with two credentialed teachers.
Enrollment at the school has averaged 35 students during the past ten years.
Our low student-teacher ratio enhances individual attention, while multiple-grade classrooms create an environment for cross-learning: Younger students learn from older ones and the older ones have the opportunity to share with the younger students.

All 4 of my children have attended GACS from kindergarten through the 8th grade. I absolutely love this school! The classes are small and the teachers are able to give each student individual attention and the students are able to work at their own level in each subject. Their academics are superior and all 4 of my kids have had outstanding scores on their national tests. This school prepared my kids well to continue on with high school and college where they have continued to be successful. Besides academics this school is like a close knit family where they have made lifelong friendships with other students and the teachers. With a strong Christian atmosphere it is apparent that the students and teachers really love God. I can't say enough about this school!

Don't Need Financial Aid? Step to the Front of the Line!
The fallout of the economic and financial meltdown of 2009 was far reaching. Private schools did not escape the consequences either. But that may be a good thing for you.

School shootings and other emergency situations won't happen in your school, right? Who knows! Better to put in place the steps necessary to protect the school community than to be caught unprepared.
