STEM EXPO: It's time to start preparing for this year's annual STEM Expo on Friday, April 13!  Last year, we had 81 creative, innovative projects submitted by our talented scientists, designers, engineers, and inventors! We cannot wait to see what this year will bring! This year, we have added a new category, Engineering Development, for all of our roller coaster builders and architects! We are also allowing students the option to work with ONE partner in their grade level. Students in 3rd through 8th grades may submit a project, but all grades will get to enjoy seeing the projects and learning from experts on our STEM Expo Day!  

Click here to download the information packet for your reference. You will see "Project Milestone" dates and information in the packet. On March 16, our STEM experts will meet with your child to help guide and advise this process. We hope that these "check-in" dates will be helpful!

Where are they Wednesday…when we highlight former SCCS students #sccsalumni. This week our focus is on AJ Caldwell. A.J. graduated from SCCS in May 2017.

AJ CaldwellHe is a freshman at Boyce College in Louisville, Kentucky, a Christian college in direct connection with the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. A.J. is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Biblical Studies, with a focus on Youth and Family Ministry, while also playing basketball for Boyce. Boyce College plays in Division II of the NCCAA (National Christian Collegiate Athletic Association).

“Attending SCCS prepared me for college immensely,” said A.J. “Whether it be through a faculty that cared not only about my academics, but also my spiritual condition, or a Godly coach in basketball that became like a second father to me through his biblical wisdom and gospel-centered athletic mindset. It wasn’t perfect (as no school is), but it prepared me for the real world that I am encountering here in Kentucky.”

A.J. loves attending Boyce College. “I am thankful for the Lord putting me in such biblically-minded settings, both in high school and now in college,” shared A.J. “To Mrs. Wyllie, Coach Mosley, Mrs. Brenner, Mr. Wilson, Coach Moss, Mr. Franchimone and of course my dad, David Caldwell, the former Dean of Men at SCCS (just to name a few), thank you for your ministry to me and your heart for my spiritual well-being. I am a better person, and more importantly a more steadfast follower of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ because of the Holy Spirit working through you and your example. To God Be The Glory, Great Things He Has Done!”

A.J. currently attends Crossing Church in Louisville, about 15 minutes from Boyce College. “I am extremely blessed by the preaching of Pastor Jack Hughes, a graduate of The Master’s Seminary (from which my dad also graduated),” said A.J. “I have been able to help out in the Sunday School ministry, KidCity, for about two months now and it has been incredible to be able to teach little ones the Bible.”

God has been faithful and good to A.J. this past semester, and he credits the majority of this to SCCS teachers nurturing him in the way of the Lord.

“May God continue to grow SCCS and may students continue to grow in their faith through the Christ-centered classes and athletics,” said A.J. “Go Cardinals!”
