We moved our daughter to SCS in middle school. My husband and I did extensive research of all the area schools and decided on SCS. We have been so pleased with the Christian education that she has received. We were, at first, concerned that SCS would not be able to offer an advanced curriculum that our daughter needed, but the school came through. As she enters into high school, not only was she accepted into the advanced ACE program(3.75 required with all Honors classes), she will be able to ultimately complete an accredited AA in Business by the time she graduates. The teachers really care about their students and are always willing to meet with the parents for any reason. SCS also offers numerous athletic programs throughout the school year. I also feel that my daughter is safe while she is at school. The school is completely gated with only one point of entrance during the school day.
