We knew we wanted our kids to attend St. Cloud Christian School before we were expecting kids. We've known many families, teachers, & kids who have had experience there, & we knew it was the best place for our kids. It's a joy to see our two children grow in their faith, knowing it's being reinforced every day in school. Academics are consistently some of the best in the area, & the willingness of the teachers to accommodate any student's level is remarkable. Tuition is also surprisingly affordable. We actually spent less on tuition than we had been spending at daycare prior to kindergarten. Any sports that aren't offered are available through co-op programs with other nearby schools. I highly recommend St. Cloud Christian School & believe EVERY area family should at least tour the school to see for themselves if SCCS is the fit for them that it's been for us.

As a former MS/HS math teacher, let me assure you there is no perfect school, which is good because our children aren't perfect either. But St. Cloud Christian does an amazing job at helping children be who they were created to be. We chose the school because we wanted a values-based education for our children, but the academics are enriching, challenging, and engaging. I am blown away by the elective offerings at the secondary level, and the social activities and community building outside of school have made our children feel like they have been part of the group forever. Our children are eager to go to school each day and are disappointed if they have to miss for some reason. (WIN!) Our 1st grader LOVES the after-care program and our older children have enjoyed a variety of extracurriculars. A benefit I didn't know we wanted, but love: we drop all three children off at the same place each morning! The conversations to and from school as a family are priceless and I love that they see each other throughout the day. We've been blown away so many times by the quality they provide: in their athletics, school plays, Christmas program, academic expectations... They clearly have teachers and staff who are called to this role and dedicate their lives to improving the world through educating children while transforming their lives. Teaching for transformation isn't something they just say - it is evident in everything they do.

My daughters are high school students at SCCS. I love this school...We transferred here from a local charter school 4 years ago and have never looked back. My daughters are academically challenged every day (we couldn't say that about the charter school!), and I watch their teachers invest in them as individuals. I'm sure it helps that the class sizes are capped, ensuring small class-sizes!Christian faith is integrated throughout every area of education. God is not kept in a box at SCCS! I'm thankful for this school!

I am an electives teacher at St. Cloud Christian and I am just so impressed with the school to offer classes like coding, graphic design, photography, video production, art, painting, music, band, and choir starting in 6th grade. Elementary students have a wide variety of arts classes as well and I just really love the schools dedication to the arts!
