First Southern Christian School Photo #1
First Southern Christian School was established to provide an academically excellent Christian education for boys and girls in our area.
We emphasize the importance of faith in God and His revealed Word, the Bible and we challenge students to reach their full potential, academically.
We define Christian education as spiritual training which encourages spiritual growth as it is described in the Bible.
Our courses are taught in a Christian environment, with emphasis on the Christian view of God and the world.
We share God's plan for redemption with our young men and women, and prepare them for lives of effective Christian service. Our teachers are born-again Christians who are well qualified academically and also spiritually mature.
They are role models as well as instructors and are sensitive to the values taught in our churches and in Christian homes, and they work hard to encourage spiritual development in the students.
We also offer art, music, computer and physical education classes each week
