SSCS’s Mission is to provide an excellent, Christ-centered education to the families of Glynn County. Our Vision is to equip students academically and spiritually to make a difference for Christ.
SSCS is fully accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools (SACS) / Advanced Ed.
SSCS offers an education taught from a distinctively Christian perspective, with the belief that each child has unique gifts and the potential to learn. Biblical truths are integrated into every part of the school’s curriculum, as its faculty teaches foundational skills in math, language arts, Latin, Spanish, science, and history. SSCS partners with families to provide children the knowledge they need to excel academically as well as the discernment necessary to develop a biblical worldview that helps them grow in wisdom and knowledge. Ultimately, the school aims to enable students to see all of life from a Christian perspective, preparing them academically and spiritually to pursue God’s calling for their lives. Each child is a work in progress, and, as noted in the school’s motto, SSCS views it as a privilege to contribute to the work that continues “guiding hearts and growing minds.”
Financial aid is available to families based on income. SSCS uses FACTS Grant & Aid to evaluate an applicant’s financial need. If you are interested in beginning the application process, click here. Or, call SSCS at 912-634-8177 for more information. We do not want finances to be a hindrance for families wishing to attend SSCS.
SSCS teachers have an average of 18 years of teaching experience. They teach to the whole child—mentally, physically, and spiritually—with the goal of helping each child reach their highest potential and to form a Christian worldview where they learn to read, listen, think, and communicate as a Christian in all areas of life. It is our teachers and their love for teaching the hearts and minds of children that makes SSCS an invaluable experience for families.
SSCS is centrally located off of Sea Island Road behind CVS on St. Simons Island.
