In early elementary school, children develop language and literacy skills, mathematical and scientific thinking as well as social studies, arts and physical development. In advancing these skills, teachers and parents discover what children should know and be able to do at this stage. In return, this provides teachers an excellent framework for assessing development progress and how to assist with learning. Coupled with a deep biblical foundation, SCS students are challenged to excel, learn to think deeply and broadly while transferring application and evaluation of knowledge to all subject areas.

Discover and Unlock True Potential

At Southcrest, we recognize that each child is a blessing from the Lord. We strive to teach a Biblical worldview in order to lead each one to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. We acknowledge each child’s God-given abilities and challenge each to reach his/her full potential. We aim to foster spiritual, emotional, academic, and social excellence in each student. We aspire to develop leaders with a servant’s heart to further his kingdom.

Students work in small groups with partners to explore the world around them. The Bible is the center of the academic day as students advance in reading, critical thinking and problem solving. Using whole brain instruction, differentiated reading groups, learning stations, and hands-on activities, children receive a quality education in a caring and nurturing setting. As the year progresses, students become more responsible and independent, working on more projects in class which give the opportunity for creativity and self-guidance.

Awarded Model School for the Structure of Intellect

Students participate in activities to “build the cognitive and perceptual strengths that empower students to transition from the concrete stage to the symbolic comprehension required in elementary school.” The Certified Learning program, included for all Kindergarten students, “optimally prepares each student for the transition to the more advanced curriculum.

“In my opinion, Southcrest Christian School is educating children the way that the Department of Education intended children to be taught.”
