History

SCS was started by local families, has been supported by local families, and now is one of the leading christian schools in saskatchewan

From humble beginnings in 1983, SCS opened with 33 students and 2 staff, operating a K-8 program out of 3 rooms rented from a local school.  Today, almost 35 years later, we have a growing enrollment of over 330 students and more than 50 staff.  SCS offers a fully accredited K-12 curriculum from modern facilities situated on its 37-acre campus.  SCS would not enjoy its current success if not for the deep faith, sharp foresight and obvious commitment to Christian education shown by the founding families and those who followed.  As the school has grown and as the circumstances and partnerships for Christian education have changed, SCS has adapted, looking back with thanksgiving and ahead with hope.
