Siouxland Christian School is first and foremost committed to instruction and education that conforms to the Word of God.
Because we are of diverse church and denominational backgrounds, it is important that as a body of believers known as Siouxland Christian School, we are diligent about unity, based on the truths of Scripture, in the bond of love.
To that end, it is important to set forth, in writing these Tenets of Faith. Meaningful education has reverence for God as its starting point and glorifying God as its goal.
Parents are given the responsibility of carefully instructing their children in the principles and doctrines of the Bible, and thus have a religious and moral responsibility to provide Christian education.
SCS is an extension of the Christ-centered home and church.
The entire faculty consists of born-again Christians who believe that teaching is both a calling and a ministry.
They are dedicated and well qualified, both spiritually and academically. Each member has been selected and prayerfully chosen.
