SCCS is a wonderful school! One of my daughters just graduated and another is still in High School. They have both been attending SCCS since elementary school. They left to attend public school for a brief time, but both wanted to return to SCCS. The teachers and staff are caring and concerned for their well being and academic success. They make themselves available for them to talk to when they have questions. My daughters and our family have made friends we will have forever.

We truly love this school! We have two kids attending, currently in 7th and 10th grade. The teachers honestly care about the kids and work with the parents to educate them in the Lord and in life, and we really feel that the education is top notch. The class sizes are small and the curriculum and student work have great visibility via renweb, showing expected work and continual progress. We fully recommend!

We love SCCS. This is our 15th year. My older son graduated 3 year ago and my younger son is graduation this year. The teachers are great, they are always available to help the students. As much as they care about the students` academic success, they also care about their daily lives. Both my boys were able to get into great universities. We are so thankful for SCCS and for the environment it provided for our kids.

Santa Clarita Christian School has been a blessing for our family. We like the biblical consistency that is displayed amongst the students and faculty, that reinforces what we are teaching at home. From the morning verse and prayer at flag salute, to the memory verses that the students not only are tested on but are encouraged to live out. As all private schools it is expensive but reasonable compared to other schools in the area. It is a worthy investment in our children's lives. The staff encourages parent participation with various activities as well. The curriculum in the elementary grades is good and easily understood. We recommend this school.

My son has been attending SCCS since he was in kindergarten and he is now in the 5th grade. SCCS is amazing and truly feels like a family. It's small enough to have an opportunity to get to know the teachers, parents, and administration on a personal level. For the price that I pay, which is the lowest in the Santa Clarita Valley, my son receives a steller education. We woudn't ever leave SCCS.

We love our daughter going to SCCS. First and foremost it is due being a Christian school where the gospel is rightly taught. Secondly, we love the atmosphere being so intimate and it is a community of like mindedness acedemically offering many options along with an amazing sports program offered to all grade levels from K-12. We are so thankful to be able to attend a school where our child thrives.

We love SCCS. Our daughter has been attending since kindergarten and she is now in the 8th grade. The teachers and academics at this school have always been excellent. Leadership is constantly updating and improving the curriculum to meet the competitive demands and for a small school, the sports, music, and arts programs are growing and excelling. There is definitely a family feel about SCCS and I love that I know my daughter's teachers and can communicate with them about any joys or concerns. Most importantly, our daughter loves this school, her teachers, and classmates and she is receiving the Christian education and world view we desire for her .

SCCS has been the greatest experience I could have allowed my children to have. My children have been reinforced with the love for the Lord Jesus, and are truly standing over a rock when trials have come. They know Jesus truly, they are not religious, SCCS has helped me instilled that relationship with Jesus in them. Moreover, they love to read, they are excellent writers, they are organized and do not procrastinated homework; this without saying they are 8 and 12, they couldn`t have accomplished that if it weren`t because the staff at SCCS makes sure they learn this important-for-life skills. Prayer is a common practice in the classroom, what a better way to start any task, let along the whole day. Great School!

We have recently enrolled our son as a high school junior. He loves it here. We love the caring staff of teachers, coaches, and administrators who care about him personally and spiritually, as well as academically. We really appreciate the smaller class sizes... SCCS is not a school where your child will get lost in the crowd.

This is our fourth year at SCCS. We could not be more pleased with our experience. As a family who is seeking instruction from a biblical worldview, SCCS has met all of our exceptions and gone beyond. Our children have been greatly cared for and loved by their teachers. They are receiving daily biblical instruction and discipleship. The academics are challenging and engaging. We are confident that they will be prepared for college. Not only do we love the education that our children are receiving, but they are making friendships that have the potential to last a lifetime. The community at SCCS is very unique. It often feels like a combination of school, church, camp, and a small town "Hoosiers" type experience. Today, the basketball team is signing shirts so that the students can support their Cardinals. Our Varsity basketball team has earned their place to head to Sacramento to play for the title of State Champs in their division. SCCS is providing busses for secondary students to come and see the game. What school does this?? These are the moments where we thank their Lord for these kinds of opportunities for our children to experience the close knit community of a K-12 school with all the fun, while having the foundation of a school firmly grounded in the timeless and inerrant Scriptures. Excellent education to the glory of God is our aim, and SCCS helps us to accomplish that goal for our children.

We looked at all the schools in Santa Clarita and when it came down to it, SCCS provided the Christ centered, bible based school that we were looking for. In addition the academics were on par with the other schools, and when we looked at where the children were going to college, we were very impressed. Very Family friendly, encouraging environment along with being very competitive in sports. Our daughter has been here since kindergarten and getting ready to enter junior high. She loves the school, the teachers along with the academics and the sports offered.

My daughter has been at SCCS for 12 years now, Kindergarten - 11th grade. We have been so happy with everything; the academics, spiritual growth, sports programs, community service projects (iServe), support. I can't stress how much my daughter has grown as a whole person because of the Christian education she has received from Santa Clarita Christian School.

Our family has been at the school for six years now. Our oldest started in Kindergarten and is now in the 5th grade and our youngest is in the 1st grade.As a family, we value a solid Christian education. Our kids are learning about math, science, history, etc. from a biblical perspective and are being taught by nurturing teachers and coaches that truly care about our kids. We have personally experienced teachers praying for, walking alongside and partnering with us as we have encountered behavioral issues with our boys.We also appreciate that the campus is K-12. Our boys have developed relationships with some of the older students through the reading buddies program, spiritual emphasis week, etc. Many of the high school seniors have also helped to coach their pee-wee and elementary teams. The relationships they are developing with the older students have given our sons a vision of the hard work and determination it is going to take for them to accomplish their goals.Both of them have also enjoyed playing soccer, basketball and flag football, beginning in kindergarten through elementary. They love representing their school in the Santa Clarita Valley and playing against other private schools.We have made life-long friends with the families at SCCS. SCCS is a great school!

We have been so impressed with our experience here at SCCS. We wanted to find a place that would come along side us and help in directing our daughters walk with Christ. We love the fact that the teachers and staff here care not only about the academics but about the children's hearts and love for Jesus. We feel our girls have been set up for success in their academics as they are challenged on a daily basis.

My daughter is in 10th grade and has been attending SCCS since the 1st grade. Having her attend SCCS has been the best decision we ever made. It is a top notch school with wonderful teachers and staff. They care about our children's education, spiritual development and just helping produce very well rounded children. SCCS not only cares for your children but cares for you as a family as well. We have been blessed to have our daughter attend there.

I have 4 children. Two graduated from SCCS and two are now in high school. This school is top notch! The Christian and academic environment has really helped my children to grow into young men and women with character. My two older children attend prestigious colleges and are doing quite well. The school offers very good sports programs, art classes and AP/honors classes. I am so happy that my children have benefited from the teachers and the environment that SCCS offers.
