Our Vision Our students will acquire wisdom, knowledge, and a biblical worldview as evidenced by a lifestyle of character, leadership, service, stewardship, and worship.
Southside Christian School is founded upon certain educational beliefs.
Our school is based on the following statements each child is a unique individual, infinitely valuable because he/she is made in the image of, and valued by God.
We must allow children to learn to think, understand, and see the central truths of Christianity quite clearly.
Our Christian faith need not be compartmentalized from secular subjects.
It fits reality and provides intellectually defensible answers.  Children must be helped to develop habits of obedience, discipline, consideration, concentration, and self-control.

We`ve been at SCS for a few years now. We couldn`t ask for a better community to educate our kids. Each child is seen and cared for. SCS has gone above and beyond our expectations for a school.

Our family has been going to the school for 6+ years. We don't think of it as a school, but an extension of our family. We love the teachers, the hearts they have for God, and the attention our kids get with the small classroom sizes. We cannot imagine another school for our two boys. We love SCS!

Southside Christian School is more than a school, it's an extension of our family. This school has exceeded our expectations. From the moment you walk into the school you can feel the presence of God and the love from the teachers and staff. The teachers and staff aren't just there to educate our children, they are there because they want each student to find their voice and be confident in every journey they face. We love Southside Christian School and couldn't imagine our children attending any other school.
