Florence Christian School

Tel: (843)662-0454
Grades: PK-12 | 728 students
Florence Christian School was established in 1972 as an extension and ministry of the Florence Baptist Temple.
The school exists to assist your family in training your children intellectually, physically, spiritually, and socially toward maturity and responsible independence.
We view our school as an adjunct to the home and church.
Although we attempt to keep a warm, spiritual atmosphere of traditional, Christian values, we are primarily an education institution.
Our ultimate purpose is to assist the family in producing well-rounded children who are excited about themselves, what they are doing, and are prepared for adult responsibility.
The school consists of Child Development, Kindergarten, Elementary, Junior and Senior High levels (3 years of age through the twelfth grade).
