Educating students in excellence & integrity, to lead and impact society by fulfilling their destiny for the glory of God.

What is the Southlands difference?

At Southlands Christian Schools we believe a well-rounded educational experience gives our students the foundation they need to lead the life God has destined for them. Through academic excellence, spiritual development, moral and ethical awareness, athletics, fine arts, and social events, we are developing tomorrow’s leaders.

Established in 1979, SCS has become one of Southern California’s most respected private schools. Fully accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, we are a non-profit organization. Our college prep, co-educational school is comprised of Preschool, Elementary, Middle and High Schools, as well as a Private Satellite Program.

Southlands Christian Schools exists to educate students in excellence and integrity; to lead and impact society by fulfilling their destinies for the glory of God.
It is Southlands Christian Schools’ primary task to touch the hearts of children with the reality of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
We believe that God is the Eternal King. He is an infinite, unchangeable Spirit; perfect in holiness, wisdom, goodness, justice, power, and love.
