Our Mission and Values

An excellent education - and so much more

Welcome to Pine Harbor Christian Academy!

Pine Harbor Christian Academy is a ministry of The Harbor Church (formerly Jubilee Christian Center) that has been educating the southeast Twin Cities metro area since 1982. With over 20 different churches represented, we are a non-denominational, welcoming community offering an excellent education that meets the unique needs of all students. Our goal is to encourage Christian young people in the highest principles of Christian leadership, self-discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity and good citizenship.

The Academy is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) Organization. ACSI is an educational organization serving Christian schools across the United States and around the world. ACSI is a full-service association designed to be a meaningful aid to the school’s educational ministry.

Mission and Values

It is our mission to provide a place that focuses on growing children by instilling Christ-centered values, together with strong academics, to develop high character leaders who influence their world.

What that means: We believe that students deserve an excellent education and so much more. Guiding principles that combine Academics, Biblical Values, Leadership and Service allow us to help students discover their gifts and to develop their character.

We believe students deserve more in their education than strictly academics.


We teach our students how to memorize scripture and to live out biblical principles at school, home, and in the world.


PHCA students consistently test above their public school peers.  We fervently pursue a student-teacher ratio of 15:1.


Our students are taught on the importance of their character, morality and integrity.


Students engage in service projects throughout the year, and are instilled with the value of serving others.
