Science

The whole point of a Christian school is to teach students about God’s creation and what mankind has produced and revealed about Him through literature, mathematics, science, and history. We seek to do everything to the best of our ability, holding ourselves to the highest standards and executing everything with excellence because of the God we represent. We want to surpass standards and improve our reputation in the community so that more people can hear about SCCS and our students, so they in turn will see what God is doing on our campus. We want to send our students into the world well-equipped to think clearly, present and defend their views and faith, work hard, and stand strong before the world.
