  • I love SWCS! I am proud to have both of my girls, in such a Christ filled and safe facility. Academics are fantastic, well above what is offered here in Yuma. The staff really encourages all students to do and be their very best, for God and for themselves.
    SWCS is located inside of First Christian Church, a beautiful state of the art facility. Did I mention the computer lab? They also teach Rosetta Stone Spanish from first through fifth grades. My children have homework each night to keep their minds fresh. Class size is small, which I really appreciate this the most. I encourage any family who might be seeking Christian education to come see the school for themselves.
