The teachers and staff were so supportive of helping our student adjust to her new school in 9th grade. She loved the additional challenge of art class competition. I`m so thankful!

My children love this school. They have joined this school since Pre-K and they love their school. There was one point that I think we can save $ by sending them to public school instead but after hearing, I said that my daughter said...mom if I have enough in my savings can I use that $ to pay the tuition so that I can continue at SCS.

Schaumburg Christian School is the place where my son is the happiest aside from home. The curriculum is age appropriate. Teachers and staff are very nice. They go extra mile to meet the needs, not only of students but parents as well.

SCS is an excellent school! The academics are rigorous, the teachers are well equipped, and the atmosphere is safe, friendly, and exemplifies the love of God. I have a third-grade student, a kindergarten student, and we`ve just enrolled our youngest child in the K3 program. I`m looking forward to many years of character building in the lives of my children at Schaumburg Christian school!

Our children love SCS and both were on the honor roll each year they`ve been enrolled. Their teachers keep in contact with us regularly on the assignments and how they are progressing. I love the culture of the school and my fellow classmates.

The best school, bar none. SCS has been a blessing for my child and our whole family in general. The teaching staff is very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and above all passionate about what they do. I would highly recommend the school for any parent out there.

Excellence Christian School! This will be my daughter's 4th year attending SCS this coming school year. I am so amazed at how much she's learned while being at Schaumburg Christian School. The staff, teachers, and administrators value and implement the core values of a Christian School and education.

SCS has helped mold my 2 girls academically, spiritually, socially. The teachers not only focused on their academics but the whole person of each student. Very competitive with music and arts, sports and academics. Great school!

My kids have loved going to SCS. The teachers are caring, and the curriculum is well balanced. One of the other plus points is the discipline it inculcates in students. Great music and art teachers too..!

SCS offers quality education in a safe and Christian environment. Compared to other private schools(Christian and nonchristian) in the area, the price is very affordable for the type of education they provide. Will recommend it to any parent who wants the best for their children at a very affordable price.

SCS thus far has offered my child the education that I could have only dreamed of growing up. SCS educators seems to concentrate on the whole person and how to strengthen society instead of just fitting in. My daughter thrives in SCS, something she did not do in the public forum. Thank you!
