The mission of Southcrest Christian School is to love and value each individual by affirming the gifts and challenging the potential of each student with academic excellence and a strong Biblical foundation while empowering students with a Christian worldview for a lifetime of faith and service.
We strive to train our students to be spiritually discerning and well prepared in all academic disciplines – skilled in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Our students learn skills to question, problem solve, make wise decisions, and articulate and defend their Christian world-view while having a basic understanding of opposing world views. We use a Biblically integrated curriculum including foreign languages (Spanish and Mandarin), fine arts, athletics, chapel and core subjects with small class sizes.
Annual testing shows that our elementary students score 1 – 2 grade levels above the national norm while middle and high school students score in the 70th – 90th percentile nationally. Math scores are consistently in the 80th percentile and above. Our proven curriculum has produced National Merit Commended Scholars and our seniors earn on average $40,000 in scholarships.
Southcrest Christian School is not a refuge from, but rather a resource for a rapidly changing world.
Southcrest Christian School operates as a self-supported ministry of Southcrest Baptist Church and believes in Christ-centered academic disciplines. It was founded in 1993 under the leadership of Dr. David L. Wilson. Currently, SCS is accountable to the Board of Trustees, made up of Southcrest Baptist Church members and parents, appointed by the Board and approved by the senior pastor.
