    My kids are 3rd generation at this school. It has always been a wonderful institution of learning and love. Now, with my children I see how far they have come. Academics are terrific! My kids are testing at or above the curve! My 10th grader was more than prepared for high school and I have confidence my 8th grader will be also. The teachers are phenomenal! Not only with academics, but the love they pour into their students is amazing. I know that whatever my kids need, the teachers will be there for them. They will love and support them almost as much as we do. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the teachers.

    What a great Christian education this school has to offer. The teachers care about their students, pray for their students, and guide them in all walks of life. They are taught real world problems and how to deal with them in a realistic and kind way. They offer before and after school care for preschool through 5th grade (which my children are products of) and the high school has multiple opportunities for engagement.
    Great school, where the teachers, staff and administrators really care about your child and the whole family. As soon as your walk through the doors of SCCS in Oak Lawn, you can feel the difference, it is an atmosphere of love, acceptance and growth, a place where children can feel welcome to be themselves and grow alongside their peers both academically and in life.
