Southminster Day School
Southminster Day School, a private school, was established in 1967.
It is a mission of Southminster Presbyterian Church. Our purpose is to give children of the community the finest background in their early formative years in a Christian atmosphere.
We guide and direct the children's growth in appreciation of spiritual values, social skills and attitudes, independence, emotional stability, self- expression, and good habits.
We like to feel our children will increase “in wisdom and favor with God and man”.
Southminster has a traditional academic program. We have a phonics-based reading program and follow the State of Alabama course of study.
Emphasis is placed on developing study skills, a sense of responsibility, and proper conduct.
Students receive instruction in Physical Education, Art, Music, Spanish, Computer and Religion.
All students attend Chapel weekly for songs and a special message. Parents are invited and welcome to attend each week.
