Santaim Christian has changed over the years that my child has attended. The leaderships focus on academics is becoming more and more urgent, despite the fact that our students test well above comparable public schools. The admissions policy on the other hand seems to have relaxed over the years and

This is definitely a trend that has been noticed by many families and I know a dozen or more that have pulled their children out as a result and many more who are considering it at this time. The parents I know put their children in this school for bible-based teaching and the reinforcement of what our child is being taught at home. An unashamed approach to centering on God's word and the character of these kids is why this school was started. Read less

They are very quick about entering these in the program; many times my sons receive the results of their tests the same day! Every school (both public & private) receives points for education, sports, activities, and sportsmanship. These points are accumulated and the winner receives the 'Oregon Cup Award'. Santiam Christian has received this award 7 out of the last 8 years! Great school! Read less

As the parent of an elementary student who has attended Santiam Christian since the first grade, I could not be happier.

I enrolled my daughter into 11th grade this year, and it has been a great experinece so far. The faculty worked very hard to get her into school, since she applied just 2 weeks before school started. The staff and students are VERY friendly and they LIVE THEIR FAITH. (Listen to the SOLD OUT drama

My daughter attended SCHS and for the most part, I was very pleased with her experience there. She transfered from a school in Albany, and I know it made all the difference in her success. Yes, there are 'cliques' which is normal in any school such as sports, drama or whatever, but that's a normal

That's one area I think the teachers need to be aware of and watch to make sure they don't overlook students new to the SC environment. Even though SC is not perfect, I know my daughter did much better by attending school here than in Albany where the drop-out rate was frightening. The teachers are caring and truly interested in teaching. Read less
