About Us

Strategic Initiatives

The core values of SCS provide a deeper understanding and specific articulation of the school’s mission. These values reflect our commitment to honor and reflect the character of Jesus Christ as an educational ministry and serve as the standard by which we measure the effectiveness of our program. In essence, these values are simultaneously who we are and who we strive to be, as Paul says in Philippians 3:12-14:

“Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

We press on towards the goal... with our Minds

WE VALUE a biblical worldview by training students to examine each subject area through the lens of scripture.
WE VALUE wisdom by recognizing that our minds must be renewed by God to ensure our intellect honors the one who created it.

We press on towards the goal... with our Talents

WE VALUE God’s unique gifting to each student by encouraging them to explore their spiritual, intellectual, artistic, and athletic abilities.
WE VALUE each student’s God given talents by assisting students in discovering and understanding them; inspiring and equipping students to develop them; and in providing opportunities to use and serve with them.

We press on towards the goal... with our Lives
