This will be our third year attending SCCS and we couldn't be happier! First of all I love the teachers. They have been such an encouragement both to us and our son. He is happy and so excited about what he learned when I pick him up. I can't say enough about how great the curriculum is as well and the teaching style of the classical method!! It is an excellent education that far exceeds my expectations. My husband and I talk often about what a big advantage we would''ve had in our academic and spiritual lives had we attended a classical Christian school growing up and we are thrilled to be able to give this gift and opportunity to our children.

Our eldest daughter started Kindergarten in SCCS's inaugural class, and now all three of our girls attend. Having seen this little school grow from 4 students to a flourishing, dynamic academic program with limitless potential for excellency, I can attest there is no other education option that can come close to what SCCS offers IN the heart of the city of Seattle. We are ''all in'' for the remainder of our girls'' schooling, and will continue to be a part of growing SCCS to a full K-12 school alongside fellow parents, educators and administrators, who share our drive and deep passion for the importance of an urban Christian Classical education and community for our kids.

SCCS is an absolute gem of a school in the heart of Seattle. The curriculum is rigorous and interesting, the teachers are invested and caring, and the larger school community is devoted to the school's mission. Our kindergartner is absolutely thriving there. My husband and I love that the school is located right downtown and that the kids daily learn the Gospel and how to love and serve the city that they live in.

This is our first year at SCCS, but our fourth year in classical education. It is a joy to partner with the school and know our girls are not only learning in a rigorous urban environment, but also in the greater context of God's creation of order and beauty. The teachers and staff truly care about hearts first then learning. We look forward to being a part of God's plan for this school in Seattle.

We LOVE Seattle Classical Christian School. Last year, we had a kindergartener there, and this year we have a kindergartener and a first grader. We have been so blessed by the teachers, who truly love our kids. They are getting a great education as well, and having a lot of fun learning! My kids come home so excited to talk about what they are learning. We are very thankful that we are a part of SCCS.

Love this school and the caring staff that work there. This is the second year we have been a part of SCCS. We have had a wonderful experience with our eldest child and look forward to enrolling all three of our children when they are of age. The quality of the curriculum and teaching that happens daily is top notch. We have made so many wonderful friends with other school families and our daughter loves each of the students in her class. We are extremely thankful for an urban school that focuses on academic excellence, raising up servant leaders and sharing the gospel throughout each class!

I have three children attending SCCS and this will be our third school year to be part of this school. I firmly believe that the education they are receiving at this tender age will set them apart academically and professionally in the years to come. They are all being taught to love learning, to discover and be curious and to do so with respect for each other and the world around them. My concern with Classical Education was that the kids were not going to have room to "be kids", that the academic load would be too heavy and that creativity would not be welcome. These fears turned out to be baseless. SCCS strikes that careful balance of high expectations and diligent effort from the kids but with time to be free and giving them VERY light load of homework only starting at grade 4. Our family has been very blessed by this school and recommend it without reservation.

We had a fantastic experience at Seattle Classical Christian School this past year. Our Kindergartener was challenged, encouraged, and his love of learning was enhanced. He said "We learned about God AND math!" The quality of teachers and curriculum was top notch. We are looking forward to coming back to school in the fall!
