The Value of Christian Education

In 1970, Highland Park Baptist Church launched one of its most significant ministries, Southfield Christian School.  SCS is an expression of our commitment, as a church, to serve the Christian community of metro Detroit by providing excellence in academic training in the context of deeply held biblical faith. 

Excellent education cannot be separated from biblical truth.  The Scriptures repeatedly point to the importance of teaching our children to know and love the God who created all of the wonder that surrounds them.  The foundational truth that there is only one God who is to be the center of all of our affections is complemented by the command to teach our children His truth.  (Deut. 6:4-9)  No one can truly understand the wonder of the world in which we live, apart from knowing and loving the Creator of that world!

Southfield Christian pursues excellence for God’s glory.  Its college prep curriculum is centered in the life preparing and life giving Word of God.  The administration and faculty are highly qualified and are committed to offering the best quality education available.  SCS develops the character of God-honoring students, equipped with the highest level of academic rigor, to become leaders in their world for the sake of Christ. 

Highland Park’s vision is to grow disciples of Jesus Christ, who are committed to worshiping God and to transforming their world through the power of the Holy Spirit.  Southfield Christian plays an integral role in accomplishing that vision!  The Holy Spirit has greatly used graduates of SCS who have gone throughout our country and around the world with the transforming power and message of the gospel.  In every sector of society, SCS alumni have been used by the Lord to extend the worship of Him.

I would encourage your family share in the experience of community, growth, and excellence that Southfield Christian School offers.
