School Notes

  • Christ-centeredFirst and foremost, our school strives to place Jesus Christ at the center of its philosophy, purpose, and programs.  Our academic and co-curricular programs recognize one true God as revealed in Scriptures.Unity of BelieversOur current student body represents over 100 churches in the Sioux Falls region.  As a requirement for admission, at least one parent must claim Jesus Christ as his/her personal Savior and be an active member of a Bible-believing church.Family-focusedIn accordance with "Our Mission" we believe educating God`s children requires a partnership between church, home, and school.  Therefore, the school`s authority emanates from the Christian home, which is represented by a governing board consisting of parents who profess and promote our Christian values and beliefs.

This is a very good school with a tough curriculum and very high standards. A great Christian education and excellent college preparation for our kids who have excelled in college due to excellent teachers and work ethic surrounding them here. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND SFC OF SX FALLS!!!! Christ is at the center- and the Bible is taught and lived out.

We choose Sioux Falls Christian over Public Education because we wanted our children to grow spiritually in the faith, centered around Christ, as they are getting their education. This Biblical approach gives them a deeper understanding of the scriptures and how those principles can be applied to their education while not having to confirm to the worldviews that the public education system is enforcing. Sioux Falls Christian is giving our family a community of believers with the same focus. This focus is to give our children a Christ Centered Education; so that when they are ready to join society as adults, they have the knowledge to bring new believers to Christ.

Very happy our Grandchild attends this school. He learns his Bible verses along with his academics and the teachers are very impressive and committed to providing a Christian centered curriculum in a great learning environment. Grandparents have an association meeting monthly with opportunities to volunteer or be involved in tutoring. The school has a wonderful literary pathway program available to youth from across the city during evenings. Very happy our little Grandson is a " Charger" and has the chance to attend SFC.
