Our Philosophy
     The Asheville-Pisgah Christian School is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to provide a spiritually oriented education for children. A belief in the existence of the Creator God is fundamental in the philosophy of Seventh-day Adventist schools. We respect His divine authority and recognize His intervention in human affairs. We believe that true education develops the spiritual, mental, and physical powers of each student; preparing them for the joy of service in this life and for the higher joy of service in the life to come. To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to:

  • develop a personal relationship with God and each other as stated in Matthew 2:37-39
  • suceeded academically
  • cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessing God intended.

The Asheville-Pisgah Christian School is operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

     Asheville-Pisgah Christian School has a rich heritage. The current school can trace its roots back along two paths. An elementary school on the Mt. Pisgah Academy Campus in Candler began operating in the early 1920s. Another Seventh-day Adventist school was begun on Haywood Road in Asheville around 1943. In 1952, the Asheville church saw the need for growth and asked to merge with the Pisgah School. The two schools became one in the old two-room wood structure that sat on the hill where the current building stands. The current facilities began in 1960 as a two-room building and over the years two other buildings were added. Currently, the school has been totally renovated with six classrooms, new hallways, new bathrooms, library, and multi-purpose room. We are so thankful for the many people who have worked together to make our school all it can be. The commitment for Adventist Christian education is still alive and growing.
