South Christian High School

Our Mission

The mission of South Christian High School is to equip students to live Christ-centered lives and serve God to their greatest potential. It is a safe place where students grow and belong. The rich curriculum, thriving fine arts program, and strong athletic tradition are all designed to inspire and encourage students to play a part in God’s story of redemption.

The South Christian Experience

South Christian is a private school dedicated to educating young people from a Reformed Christian perspective. It is a place where Christian values and principles are incorporated with rigorous academic study and extracurricular challenges to prepare students to be competent, contributing members of society.

Anchored in Community

An important aspect of South Christian is the relationships that are built, both with other classmates as well as teachers. Class lessons are designed to have students working together in a variety of learning spaces. Sports, drama, robotics, music, Young Life, and other clubs offer students opportunities outside the classroom to develop their gifts. Parents, alumni, and other supporters are also a vital part of the South Christian faith community.

Teaching for Transformation

Teaching for Transformation is a design framework for the creation of authentic, formational learning experiences rooted in a transformational worldview. The staff incorporates this by teaching students about God’s world, inviting students into God’s story, nurturing students to live faithfully all their lives, and empowering students to serve the real needs of people.

What Sets us apart

Our teachers are highly qualified and care deeply about the content of their classes. The difference is that they also teach students how to think and why their education matters. Students leave the classroom not only with new information but also with new skills and abilities that empower them to continue being lifelong learners and disciples. They also receive a sense of purpose: that their academics are equipping them spiritually to live out their callings and use their gifts and abilities, all to the glory of God.

Where We’re Located

Our school is conveniently located in the southeast corner of Kent County, just a few minutes drive to many adjoining neighborhoods within Greater Grand Rapids, Kentwood, Byron Center, Cutlerville, Caledonia, and Wyoming. We take pride in our new, state-of-the-art building, generously funded through community donations. Our new facilities, completed in December 2018, provide a safe and inspiring environment for our students and staff.

what parents are saying

We are thankful that the Lord led us to a school where God’s Word is woven into the curriculum. It is our hope that our son’s character continues to be molded daily at South Christian and that he will grow to be a man ready to be a light for Christ in today’s world."

Our family has had an exceptional experience at South Christian. We have hosted international students and our daughter attends the school. We appreciate the Biblical worldview in every subject. We have been especially grateful for the extracurricular activities. All of the coaches have genuinely cared about our kids and have taught them valuable life lessons. We are thankful as parents to have teachers and coaches partner with us to prepare our children for life."

Seeing your children learn and grow during their high school years is great for any parent, but seeing what is going on at South Christian is AMAZING! We are seeing first-hand our children’s faith grow and flourish due to the many opportunities South Christian has to offer and instill."
