From Sarasota Christian School

For over 60 years, SCS has been igniting minds and infusing faith. From our high school honors classes to our Odyssey of the Mind program, our students are learning how to collaborate and become critical thinkers. Equally important, academics are taught from a Christian perspective. Teachers at SCS faithfully mentor students in their spiritual journey and help them to recognize their God-given gifts and talents.

SCS offers an exceptional education infused with biblical truth so our students can make an impact for His kingdom. We accomplish this by building Godly relationships with every student, so that as we become relevant people in their lives, students will trust us to push them to previously impossible levels of rigor.

With over 400 students representing more than 70 area churches, our community is diverse and welcoming to all. We invite you to visit our beautiful 25-acre campus to experience the difference that a learning environment deeply rooted in Christ provides.

Two Tracks, One Goal

SCS students choose between earning a traditional high school diploma or a "Blazer Honors Diploma". While both tracks are academically sound and appropriate for college preparedness, the honors alternative is for students seeking a higher level of academic rigor. Offering two distinct tracks gives our students the option to tailor their educational experience to best meet their future goals.
