  • We have had our two children at SCS since kindergarten. Our oldest will graduate in May and our youngest will finish middle school. We love SCS and the the Christ centered envioronment. The academics are excellant, there are many extra-curricular activities to choose from to keep your child involved and having fun in a safe Christ centered environment. SCHS is a great high school with small classes, exceptional academics with test scores above the national levels. We look forward to our youngest going into high school and are proud to be apart of the SCS family.

  • We have had our two children at Sarasota Christian School since they were in kindergarten. Our oldest is now in middle school and is adjusting to this sometimes awkward time of life quite well. We attribute this to the environment at SCS. The school is very much like a community, we know our children’s friends and their families. The teachers and administration are caring and encouraging. Our children are able to participate in sports and after school extra-curricular activities to keep them busy and having fun. They receive all this in a Christ centered environment. The academics at SCS are exceptional, and we look forward to our children completing their high school years and continuing on to a major university.

  • We have been sending our children to Sarasota Christian School since kindergarten and couldn't be happier with the excellent education, caring teachers and staff, and strong community feel we get from this school.
