We encourage you to visit us if....

~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 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 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 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.






Here at Sandpoint Christian School, children from 3 years old to 8th grade can learn in a safe and loving Christian atmosphere. Students are provided with all the teaching instruction and curriculum they need to meet and exceed the Idaho State Standards for Education but at the same time, they are also provided with essential Bible teaching so that they can grow up in the knowledge of the good news of Jesus Christ! “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

As a purely non-denominational school, we believe in teaching that God loves us and has a real plan for our lives. We don’t get into the doctrinal differences between the various church denominations, but seek to equip students with the Bible knowledge they need to build their lives upon the solid foundation, the rock, which is Jesus. Many of our alumni go on to college and into the ministry doing things like teaching, worship leading and mission work.

Our qualified Christian teachers like to make learning fun and exciting! With our small class sizes of 12 to 24 children per class, they are able to do lots of hands-on projects like mummifying a raw chicken to see how the Egyptians did it or making raspberry jam in our kitchen or building a cool reading loft in their classroom or creating games to summarize each lesson or turning every classroom into a different country on our annual Living History Day so the students can “travel the world.” At the end of each year we host Extreme Science Day where every classroom is a separate science lab in which to experiment and learn about the wonders of science. We plan several field trips each year as well to enhance the subjects we are learning about.

Come check out our spacious campus! We are about one mile north of Walmart on Highway 95. We share our building with Sandpoint Church of the Nazarene, even though we are non-denominational. We are happy to give you a tour and answer any questions you may have about Christian education.
