School Notes:

Students meet weekly in chapel and daily in Bible classes. Encouraged to pursue an intimate relationship with God, students are energized about the future and have a desire to make a positive difference in the world. The importance of virtue and the development of true character are high priorities. An SCS education is not a refuge from, but rather, a resource for a rapidly changing world!
