The History of South Christian High School
Over the years, South Christian has been an integral part of our West Michigan community. From humble and Christ-centered beginnings to the school’s current state of robust Christian education, South Christian goes above and beyond to anchor the lives of our students, staff, faculty, and community in the teachings of Christ. Learn more about our history.
Faith remains at our core
South Christian’s academic program is designed to infuse faith into the curriculum, inviting students to see how what they’re learning equips them to honor God with their lives. A variety of classes are offered, allowing students to explore new things or grow in the passions God has uniquely given them. Our teaching staff is composed of committed Christians, who are dedicated to learning and growing professionally and personally so that they are equipped to teach and serve their students well.
Our students collaborated with the architect to come up with the theme of this mission piece: The Pillar of Fire. The design of the pillar starts at the base representing the Old Testament and the pillar of fire that led the Israelites out of Egypt. As the design continues, it goes into the New Testament and the tongues of fire, which represent Pentecost.
BUILT ON A FOUNDATION
of a personal relationship with Christ, we equip and inspire students as whole persons: body, mind, and spirit.
South Christian strives to be a spiritually vibrant educational community that reflects God’s Kingdom. We seek God’s leading in providing academically exceptional offerings, culturally relevant methods, and service-oriented community activities.
We will accomplish this through:
- Excellence in governance and leadership
- Attraction and retention of exceptional educators
- Innovation in educational systems and delivery
- An unbending commitment in biblical truth
Faith Integrated Academics
Equipping students to live Christ-centered lives means that faith influences everything we do, both in and out of the classroom.
Through learning students will discover how to serve God to their greatest potential.
The faculty and staff at South Christian are committed to being faithful followers of Jesus. The faculty is trained both academically and spiritually to teach, mentor, and grow students in content knowledge and in the knowledge of God.
