Mission Statement
The South Side Christian School family exists to show children Jesus, nurture their love for Him and others, teach them to think, and empower them to serve.

Our Philosophy
South Side Christian School is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to provide a spiritually oriented education for children. A belief in the existence of the Creator God is fundamental in the philosophy of Seventh-day Adventist schools. We respect His divine authority and recognize His intervention in human affairs. We believe that true education develops the spiritual, mental, and physical powers of each student; preparing them for the joy of service in this life and for the higher joy of service in the life to come. To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to:
  • develop a personal relationship with God and his fellow men as stated in Matthew 2:37-39
  • master the basic academic skills
  • value labor, physical and mental, as the
  • blessing God intended
  • cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessing God intended.

South Side Christian School operates in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Peaceful, relaxed atmosphere where the love of Jesus is felt and taught. Committed Christian teachers and happy students working together to make a difference!"

Journey to Forever
South Side Christian School
A journey is not only about the destination, but is often about the journey itself, and the experiences we have along the way.  At South Side Christian School, our desire for our students is that they will experience not only academic success, but will find a relationship with Jesus, their travelling companion, and experience God’s love. 
Our journey is toward Forever; the trip will be well worth it.
