SCS serves children from Preschool through Grade 8. We are committed to academic excellence in the 4 “R’s” — Reading, Writing, Arithmetic and Reasoning and are consistently working to provide a biblically centered curriculum. SCS is committed to interactive and hands-on history and science classes intentionally integrating technology instruction within content area instruction. We also schedule so that class sizes are small enough for individual attention. SCS is also committed to providing enrichment in cultural arts which may include foreign language, art, music, library time, and PE.
