What is the history of the school?
Sioux Center Christian School has a rich history of serving the Lord. Established in 1905, the school has educated students from a Reformed perspective for over 100 years and continues to do so today. A dedicated faculty, staff, and board enjoy working with His covenant children, fulfilling the mission to develop in each of God's children a knowledge and understanding of Christ and His creation so that they can obediently serve God and others as they work and play. We look forward to discussing with you what God is doing through Sioux Center Christian School!

Tuition costs will be billed to the parents on a ten month schedule. Because of the tremendous support of the community through Fair Share, tuition costs for all families is reduced. Fair Share is what is collected through the churches, gifts and projects. Parents are not charged the Fair Share portion, but they are encouraged to pay as much of it as possible and to be active members of the Fair Share program.
