West Coast Christian Academy is located in Bradenton, FL, offering educational opportunities for students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Opened on Snead Island in 1911 by the Pillsbury family, West Coast Christian Academy has offered Christian education in Manatee county for 100 years. The school has been at its current location since 1951. West Coast Christian Academy is part of the world-wide Seventh-day Adventist school system.  The Seventh-day Adventist educational system includes elementary schools, high schools, colleges and universities on every continent except Antarctica.

Scholarships Available

Step Up for Students is managed by the state and funded through corporate donations to give low income families a voice in their children's education.  Many families have taken advantage of this opportunity.  Click here to go to their website.

McKay Scholarships are managed by the state and designed to give the parents of students with special needs a choice in their children's education. Participation in this program requires the student have a current IEP from the public system. Due to limitations in staff and resources available to West Coast Christian Academy, we review each case individually before admission.  Click here  to go to the McKay website to find out more information.

Worthy Student.  Many times families work hard and struggle to make ends meet.  Both the Bradenton and Palmetto Seventh-day Adventist Churches have funds set up for members that help to meet school financial needs.  Other churches also help out their students.  Check with your local church to see if you are eligible for financial aid.
