Our teachers have embraced distance learning while also maintaining their love for and relationships with students and families. That is a true mark of the SCS family. As we learn and grow in our distance learning program, we invite our families to be in touch with teachers about how their child is doing, what questions they have, and their ideas to make distance learning as smooth and effective as possible. Our hope is to get better and more effective each week.
Teachers check their email several times each school day to answer questions and are available to help individual students as needed. In our distance learning program, lower elementary students’ work is guided by a parent or adult at home. Older students may be more independent in their work, but they still need supervision.
Parents, we recognize that you may feel overwhelmed by life right now, and distance learning may feel that way too. However, we want to encourage you that God is Who He says He is - our Provider, our Wisdom, and our Help. He has promised never to leave you or forsake you. He has done miracle after miracle in the past, and He is still the same miracle working God today. Trust Him in this distance learning process and in every other challenge you are facing. Invite Him in and ask Him to be in charge.
I am confident God will provide us with everything we need to be successful distance teachers and learners!

90% of normal tuition. Through the blessing of SGT, our facility costs are nearly completely covered by our church family. This incredible blessing allows SCS to offer a high-quality Christian Education at a lower tuition, but also limits any inherent cost-savings from operating remotely from which a typical business might naturally benefit.
Dear SCS Families,
As we continue Distance Learning I will continue to share devotionals that the Lord has put on my heart or other messages that have touched me too. I recently shared one with our students but have had requests to share with families as well. Additionally, when you get a chance, listen to this amazing message from our very own Mr. White! The Harbor asked him to share what the Lord put on his heart a couple weeks back and I believe this message can speak to you all just as it spoke me. Thank you Mr. White for being obedient to the Lord's calling to share that message.

" The service-learning program at SCS goes hand and hand with Christian education. Students learn about loving Jesus and helping those in need. Then, they practice what they learn by going out and being the "hands and feet" of Jesus to their communities. "
Dr. Anna Ramos, SCS parent
" Knowing that our children are going to school and learning about Christ and hearing biblical truth that is not altered has confirmed to us over and over that SCS is the best choice we could make for our kids' education. "
