Vision, Mission & Core Values

Our Vision

To cultivate the love of learning.

Our Mission

To cooperate with participating families in providing a Christ-centered education that challenges the whole child to discover God’s truth, to love learning, and to relate knowledge with action.

Our goal is to inspire children to embrace and to flourish in their God-given calling as His image-bearers and to go forth as agents for truth and reconciliation in their community.

We have an intentional mission to draw in children and families of all ethnic heritages and income levels.

Our Core Values


SCCS is a school in the city, for the city.


Our curriculum is founded upon the principle that children are created in the image of God and therefore are due love, respect, and accountability by parents, teachers, and peers alike.

Broad Curriculum

We provide a feast of subjects including art, nature studies, foreign language, and music in addition to reading, writing, arithmetic, and science.


Through enrichment trips, a multi-sensory handwriting curriculum, an innovative math curriculum, regular study of nature and science, and use of real or living objects throughout every subject, we encourage opportunities for exploration and discovery.


Our small class sizes and required parental involvement build a close-knit community of students, families, and school staff learning and growing together.
