From Smithtown Christian School

Founded in 1978 as a ministry of Smithtown Gospel Tabernacle, Smithtown Christian School began as a K through 5 school with just fifty-nine students enrolled. Today, SCS offers a Pre-K through 12th grade program. The school’s population is comprised of nearly 500 students traveling from over 40 districts across Nassau and Suffolk counties with extended care services also offered.

SCS is a discipleship school. The school’s mission is to teach with excellence in the classroom and through life-on-life influence to produce exceptional young Christian leaders with a heart for God, a mind for Truth, and a passion to change the World. The faculty seek to develop the whole person via classic, time-tested academic disciplines, combined with a deep understanding of the way today’s students learn. Students are taught to cultivate an environment where they treat one another as special, doing more than what is expected with a good attitude.

I've been working as a teacher at SCS for over 15 years now. I couldn't imagine a better place to work! SCS is a family. We all work together to provide the safest and most loving environment for our students to learn and grow together. Parents, students and teachers have strong, life-long relationships. The administration continues to push our staff and students towards excellence, providing funding, opportunities and training in a variety of ways to help promote engagement and advancement. Our students are well-equipped for college and beyond. The best part about it all is that our students are receiving their education from a Biblical worldview, allowing them to see the Truth of God's Word in everything they learn. It's the best school around!
