Welcome to Sarasota Christian School
For 59 years, the Sarasota Christian School (SCS) experience has focused on cultivating Christian values and a heart for Christ through exceptional academics for Pre-K – 12th grade students. Biblical truth and values of honor, character, integrity, self-discipline, and kindness are seamlessly integrated into classrooms, extracurriculars and athletics.
SCS provides an accredited, faith-based education focused on student achievement. Learners are equipped to develop critical thinking and communication skills and to collaborate with others through varied learning opportunities. In high school, advanced academic offerings include Honors, Advanced Placement (AP) and on-site College Dual Enrollment courses where students can earn college credit while remaining in a safe, Christian environment. SCS is also the only private school in Sarasota County to offer students the option to graduate with an Associate of Arts Degree in Business from Southeastern University.
Sarasota Christian School provides students with many opportunities to discover their passions, develop their talents, and to seek God’s direction in life. In addition to rigorous academics, the innovative curriculum includes athletics, arts, Bible, character education, global world view, technology, foreign language, community service and leadership development. Student-led chapel services provide time for worship through music and motivational speakers. Creative expression and artistic talents are developed through a nationally recognized fine and performing arts program. Christian offers an impressive 11 competitive athletic sports for both middle and high school students. For almost a decade, SCS students have advanced to the World Competition for Odyssey of the Mind, a program that focuses on developing critical thinking and problem solving skills; the school recently placed fourth in the world.
At the heart of the SCS experience, you’ll find a team of caring, highly qualified, passionate faculty and staff. Committed to Christ and dedicated to each student’s academic, emotional and spiritual growth, they teach both in class and by example, expressing their faith on a daily basis. Low student to teacher ratios enable teachers to give students plenty of individual attention. These mentoring student-teacher relationships provide an invaluable continuum of communication and are a hallmark of the SCS experience.
From the moment you step onto Sarasota Christian’s inviting 25-acre campus, you’re welcomed into an exceptional learning community. Family, Christ-centered, and friendly are the words used to describe what makes SCS such a nurturing and positive learning environment. We invite you to experience the SCS difference for yourself by scheduling a campus visit.
