  • By offering a challenging, college-preparatory education grounded on the principles of the Bible, Southfield Christian School seeks to prepare young people to live full and productive lives.

    Our goal is not only to provide a strong academic foundation for college, but also to offer a firm Christian perspective for life.  By joining with parents, Southfield Christian School desires to form a partnership with the home in providing young men and women with a strong biblical foundation and a network of Christian relationships.  Our desire is to help train up a generation of godly leaders who love learning and are sought after for their wisdom.  "Pursuing Excellence for the Glory of God ... with our minds, with our talents, and with our lives" not only serves as our school's motto, but as the basis for the entire school program. 


We offer a prekindergarten program for 4 Year Olds. Parents have the option of a three-day or a five-day full day option. The day runs from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. There is a daily recess time, snack time, lunch time and nap/rest time. Children will interact with many new friends, participate in large and small groups, explore through hands-on projects, and learn about God’s Word and living for Jesus.
The purpose of the PreK is to prepare students for kindergarten. Letter and sound relationships, emerging reading skills, fine motor skills, and several kindergarten math skills are introduced and practiced. The class is quite active and maintains a center-based approach to learning, where students rotate through multiple academic centers daily. Play time is valued, and healthy social relationships are a priority. In order to enroll for PreK, children must manage their bathroom needs independently and be 4 years old prior to September 1. Before and after care is not available for prekindergarten students.

Middle School

An experienced staff and a unique learning environment make our Christian Middle School the perfect place for 6th through 8th grade students. Our facilities provide a close-knit family atmosphere where students can grow closer in their walk with Jesus, as their classroom subject matter becomes increasingly challenging.
Our desire for Southfield Christian Middle School students is that they thrive and excel, not merely survive, during their middle school years. Doing so establishes the firm foundation necessary to succeed academically and spiritually in high school and beyond. We challenge our students “to set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” We push our students to read well, to write well, to listen well, and to speak well. We know that if we believe well, we will live well. Our middle school offers a 1:1 Chromebook program.
