To prepare our students to serve Christ in this competitive, global world of the 21st century, we are passionately committed to academic excellence. Our curriculum is comprehensive, college preparatory, and taught within a Christian framework. Beginning in kindergarten, our curriculum is designed to lay a solid academic, intellectual, and spiritual foundation for our students. SCS students are challenged to excel as they are being prepared for a lifetime of faith and service. The results are young men and women who know how to think deeply and broadly while transferring application and evaluation of knowledge to all subject areas.

At SCS, we recognize that children are created by God as uniquely, gifted individuals. We seek to provide a meaningful, purposeful education based on God’s word. We strive to have a divinely empowered school climate where students are spiritually equipped to serve Christ for today and for the future. SCS provides a child-centered, nurturing and safe- environment that meets the individual needs of each child as they learn and grow.
We offer students learning experiences in a nurturing classroom environment. Each morning begins with pledges and a prayer followed by the daily routine of course work. All subjects and activities are biblically integrated, leading students to view the world through the lens of Christ. Our classrooms are active, engaging, thought provoking, and challenging. Small group instruction, whole brain learning, and differentiated learning contribute to a successful classroom environment.
Southcrest students participate in activities to “build the cognitive and perceptual strengths that empower students to transition from the concrete stage to the symbolic comprehension required in elementary school. SOI material optimally prepares each student for the transition to the more advanced curriculum of the middle grades.
“In my opinion, Southcrest Christian School is educating children the way that the Department of Education intended children to be taught.” – Dr. Robert Meeker of SOI Systems
