So what do parents think of Sioux Center Christian School? Check it out.
We asked parents these two questions:
What did/do you appreciate about SCCS?
What do you think other parents should know about SCCS?
"There are so many things that I appreciate about Sioux Center Christian School. First of all the teachers/staff are second to none. Second, the curriculum the students are taught and how modern technology has been incorporated into each classroom. Third, the theme chapels which bond the school together as a Christian family. Finally, the feeling you get when walking through the hallways you can just feel that God is there. Whether you hear children singing, or hear teachers teaching, God’s spirit is present.
Other parents should know that their children are not only getting a first rate education with teachers/staff who care, but are most importantly learning more about their walk with God through EVERYTHING that they are taught! SCCS is equipping our children with the tools that they will need and hopefully use for the rest of their lives."

"As parents of a child with special needs, we are so impressed with how the staff of SCCS goes above and beyond to make sure our son is getting the education and positive school experience he deserves! We are grateful for the emphasis that is placed on showing love and acceptance of others and what it means to be a trailblazer for Christ. SCCS is a remarkable school full of learning, fun, and love for God and others!"
--Lance and Joni Roorda
"We have appreciated the teachers at SCCS so much. Mrs. Van Solen has been a dream teacher for our 1st grader. Our son is full of energy and “all boy.” I was expecting him to hate school because of his distaste for sitting still. To our pleasant surprise, he loves school and loves his teacher. We have been very impressed with the organization of the curriculum and quality of the subject material. Our son loves learning and is eager to discover new things, but of course his favorite 'subject' is still recess.
There is a difference between teaching Christian things and teaching Christianly. And it is easy to fall into the ditch of either side; however I have been impressed with SCCS’s ability to teach Christian things AND teach Christianly. There is so much more to Christian education than incorporating memory work and holding a chapel service. As important as those activities are, the lens to see the world from a Christian perspective is paramount if we are to provide the motivational “why” we worship or read Scripture. At SCCS, the teachers are encouraged to hold up this lens as they peer into subject matter, relationships, disciplinary actions and character forming habits. Because of this, the students are blessed with the ability to grow in thought and practice in a culture of Christian discipleship."
