Mission Statement

The Riverview Christian Academy family exists to show children Jesus, nurture their love for Him and others, teach them to think, and empower them to serve.

Our Philosophy

The Riverview Christian Academy is operated by Riverview Adventist Church and Sparks 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 his fellow men as stated in Matthew 2:37-39
  • Master the basic academic skills
  • Value labor, physical and mental, as the blessing God intended
  • Cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity

The Riverview Christian Academy, formerly known as Reno Junior Academy and Silver State Adventist School, operates in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
