Statesville Christian School has been a tremendous partner in training my child to think, live, love and lead as a Christian. We have been apart of the SCS family for 13 years. Come and see for yourself what Statesville Christian School has to offer. You will not be disappointed. His Best,

This was the worst school I could have ever put my money into. My child was bullied by teachers, administration and students. The academics is not up to par with any public schools in the area. Since switching my child to a public school he is behind in almost all of his classes. The high school is a

Just because this is a christian school does not mean there are not problems with drugs, sex and alcohol. The administration ignores this to try and keep parents out of the loop. The public school I chose for my son this year has less problems with bullying and drugs. If you are thinking about sending your child to a different school, think before you choose Statesville Christian. Read less

I attended Statesville Christian from K-12 and I am now a college freshman just returning to school from fall break and felt I should write a review. I do not feel prepared for college, most of my peers have a lot of AP credits and had more choices for classes in HS so they already know their career
... Read more path. SCS is so small I only had a limited choice of classes. I did benefit from the QRT and Winterim programs, which are unique to SCS. Also in a bigger school there would have been more students to find friends, whereas this school is so small it was hard to fit in. The school concentrates on the elementary and should put more into the HS, more teachers, more class choices, more activities. I felt a lot of the teachers were just there for a paycheck, but that is probably everywhere. Looking back I feel my parents should have saved their money and put it toward my college education. I was limited by funds as to where I could attend college. Read less

I have a combined 41 years of children attending this school. While the school has never been perfect - good luck trying to find a perfect school- it is excellent and seems to be moving in a very positive direction. There are negative comments below by some, but I'm not one who feels like I should be
... Read more in charge just because I pay tuition, who feels like my child should always be the exception to every rule, or who fails to require my kids to face their own consequences, so I have been very pleased with the school. The academics are rigorous (many children transferring from public school are about a year behind), and the teachers genuinely seem to care about the students' well-being... physical, intellectual, emotional, and physical. I have no regrets spending the money to have my kids in an academically excellent environment which is based on the Christian worldview. Read less

Wow!!! My child started back to school this week and its been awesome. From the Back-to-School Bonfire to the first couple days of classes he has been so excited. God's presence is certainly in the midst of the beginning of another great year. Our child has been attending for 11 years and the teachers

This used to be a really good school. It really is NOT any more. I would not advise sending your children here. The wrong people have been in charge and the school is seeing the adverse affects. To be fair they have hired a new Head of School for the upcoming school year and I just hope that he can

If you don't agree with everything the school does or teaches your child/children along with you as a parent will be black listed. The academics are not up to par with the local public schools. The kids are generally behind in math and science. They keep the kids on a different schedule of when they take classes than that of the public schools so if you do decide to move your child they will most likely be behind. Read less
