MISSION

Sandpoint Christian School is a nondenominational faith based learning community, partnering with Christian families to promote academic excellence and prepare learners for a lifetime of commitment to Christ.

 

We encourage you to visit us . . .

~If you are a Christian family who wants their child to have a teacher who shares the same Christian values as your family, then SCS may be the right place for your family.


~If you value educational excellence and believe that academics should flow from a framework of Biblical truths and principles, then SCS may be the right place for your family.

 

~If it is important to you that Bible classes, prayer, chapel, Christian character, and Christian leadership are an integrated part of your student’s schedule, then SCS may be the right place for your family.

~If it is important to you that your child’s school friends come from homes that share many of the basic common values as those that you are teaching in your home, then SCS may be the right place for your family.


~If you are willing to be an active part of our SCS family as we seek to model what we teach and expect cooperation and participation from each family, then SCS may be the right place for your family.  We actively support parent volunteer involvement as a vital part of your family’s role and student success at SCS.
