Who Knew......We have lived in Suwanee for 20yrs. Have five children,two attended and one is still attending the school. We were in a situation that had us looking for private schools near us. I can't thank God enough for sending us to such a great challenging school. We are truly grateful for every teacher & school administrator.

We have been at Old Suwanee Christian School four years and absolutely love it ! We had spent grades Preschool through 6th at another Christian school which became increasingly more secular and worldview centered. OSCS has high standards, strong academics, genuinely loving and caring teachers, and is Christ centered first and foremost! Our high school student is being prepared academically, socially, and spiritually to fulfill the plan God has for his life.

My children attend elementary school at OSCS and absolutely love it. They have learned a tremendous amount in their few years there. The teachers strive to teach the whole child and really work with the parents in the areas of both academics and spirituality. I'm hoping we are able to send our children there for years to come.

Old Suwanee Christian School is the best school our kids have attended. The school has helped prepare our kids to be very conscious of the view of God in all they do. The curriculum is very challenging. The teachers are excellent and among the most committed we have seen in any school. I am an educator and I applaud the balance of Christian standards and academic rigor. Old Suwanee was highly recommended by several people and our experience has been even better than what we heard. We''ve been to a couple of schools. Old Suwanee excels in honoring racial diversity. Our kids can't wait to go to school each day. They love to go to school and they love their teachers. The commitment of their teachers and school administration has inspired selflessness in them. Our kids are ahead of their peers in public schools and other private schools. Enrolling our kids at Old Suwanee is one of the best decisions we have made as a family and we are grateful to God.

Our child attended Old Suwanee Christian School for nine years. The faculty and staff were partners to assist us in her education. They complemented and supplemented our desire to provide her a Godly education. She graduated in May of 2012. We are very grateful for the whole-child education she received. The faculty did not only teach a solid academic program (she scored 1770 on the SAT), but also addressed the character issues that will help guide her throughout her lifetime. Her spirit and soul were nurtured and challenged to honor the Lord. As she starts college, we are fully persuaded she is very well equipped to accomplish any task ahead of her.
