scsPartnering with parents to provide an exceptional K-8 Christian education



Families have trusted Springfield Christian School as their partner in faith and education since 1951.


As a parent, some of the most important decisions you’ll ever make are centered around your child’s education. With many options from which to choose, how do you know which will be the right fit for your child?

We realize that choosing a school is about more than academics. It’s about a partnership with a team that shares your values and will support your efforts to help your child succeed.

SCS comes alongside parents to understand how each child is uniquely wired and then creates a plan to help them thrive– academically, spiritually and socially.

An 11,000 Hour Decision

Parents must make thousands of important decisions, few of which have a greater impact than the school where your child will spend at least 11,000 hours between kindergarten and 8th grade. Intentional parents need a school partner that will share their values and equip their students– academically, spiritually and socially.
