Faith

Christian faith is at the center of the SCCS community, informing all that we do. Motivated by our faith commitments, our faculty and staff share a desire to serve families in the City of St. Louis with beautiful education that honors all children as persons made in God’s image.

As a missional school, SCCS seeks to be an inclusive blessing to our surrounding neighborhoods. The majority of our families are Christian and we also welcome families from all faith and non-faith backgrounds.

We ask that during the enrollment process, parents familiarize themselves with our faith perspective and be positively supportive of the role that it plays in student life. SCCS students attend a short weekly chapel service, study the Bible as part of the curriculum at every grade level, and begin taking theology formally once a week in seventh and eighth grade.


South City Community School admits students of any race, gender, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.
