The game is revealed in January and the team spends 10 weeks designing and building the robot. The team will also compete in several competitions in March and April.

Winterfest Committee

This summer I was hired as a controls engineering intern based on my experience with FIRST Robotics. This was a great experience for me and I really enjoyed my time with the company. Doing FIRST Robotics gave me hands-on experience that allowed me to easily walk into this position. I really enjoy the process of designing, building, and programming a robot to complete tasks. Although our first ideas may not be the best, we can develop new ideas through the failures making the successes even more rewarding.

Faith Opportunities


A senior-led Bible study that meets every Friday morning before school, at 7:30 AM. For more information, contact Flash. 


All South Christian students meet twice a week for chapel services in our auditorium. It is led by our senior class and it includes a time of worship, teaching, and reflection. We also invite our seniors to document and share their faith journey and how God has worked in their lives and how God is calling them to serve after leaving South Christian. We also invite various outside speakers that will bring a valuable message to our student body. For more information, contact Mr. Ben Kroeze.

Faith Celebration

For centuries, God’s people have celebrated His goodness and faithfulness through a variety of festivals, so every two years – alternating with Vocation Day – we have done the same at South Christian. Between the corporate sessions in the auditorium, students attend two Breakout Sectionals – classroom sessions on a variety of faith topics led by adults from the community. Faith Celebration is a welcomed “change-up” from a regular school day for both students and staff as God proves Himself faithful to our school community through great music, insightful teaching, and much more.

Sailor Serve Day

In the morning, staff and students travel from school to more than 40 sites throughout the area to do community service. They work for non-profit ministries, camps, schools, retirement communities, and many other organizations. In the afternoon, staff and students continue to celebrate community with a mixer. 

Senior Camp

Each August incoming senior students have an opportunity to participate in Senior Camp with a 10:1 ratio of staff. The goal of this camp is to celebrate God’s gift of community together as we prepare for the school year. The time away at camp allows both students and staff to reflect on God’s love as well as how He equips and empowers us to serve Him and His people. Senior camp equips the senior class to provide leadership at South Christian alongside staff.

Victory Day

On a Saturday in the Fall, the Sports Park is filled with football players, cheerleaders, pep band members, and many fans to help over 50 people with special needs enjoy a memorable day as either football players or cheerleaders. Each participant is paired with a South Christian student and given the opportunity to score a touchdown.

Join us this year on Saturday, October 1st at 4:00 PM. 

Young Life Club

Large group meetings on Monday nights. Students build authentic friendships with their  peers and pray with them. Young Life provides fun, adventurous, and life-changing experiences while helping students grow in their faith. For more information, contact Jenna Brinks.
