The Heart of SSCS
Saint Simons Christian School (SSCS) offers an education taught from a distinctively Christian perspective, with the belief that each child has unique gifts and the potential to learn.
1994—Saint Simons Christian School, formerly The Whitefield School, was founded our of a shared vision of families seeking an academically challenging, Christian education. Their mission was simple—to provide an excellent, Christ-centered education to the families of the Golden Isles.
2007—to continue its mission, the school became an independent, non-denominational Christian school led by an independent school board.
2008—SSCS hired its first headmaster.
2009—the moved from the north end of St. Simons Island to an accessible, central location and began leasing a 9,000 square foot building on three acres. Three portable buildings were moved from the school’s previous location and used for cafeteria, meeting space, middle school classrooms, and restrooms. In 2013, the school purchased the leased property and facilities. The school's name was changed to Saint Simons Christian School.
2017—in our 22nd year, we are launching the BUILD A LEGACY campaign to protect its significance and secure its future.
SSCS has doubled enrollment since becoming an Independent school in 2007.
