Welcome to San Clemente Christian School!

We are a community of teachers, parents and families united by our shared love of God and desire to follow His call on our lives. At SCCS, we truly want each student to be "the light of the world ... like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden." Not only is our curriculum engaging, challenging and Christ-centered, but we pride ourselves on guiding our students beyond their perceived potential. As a school fully accredited by Western Association of Schools and Colleges, we are focused on creating an environment that encourages academic excellence, social responsibility, emotional confidence and spiritual maturity. This formula sets us apart and inspires our students to be respectful, confident, courteous, and full of joy. 

It is our goal to prepare students for their future, launching them into the world as competent and Biblically informed leaders in their communities, careers, and families. At SCCS you are more then a student, you are an ambassador for the Kingdom of God and we are invested in your success. We look forward to partnering with your family.

Our School Verse

"You are the light of the world – like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father."

Matthew 5:14-16


Our Mission

Our mission is to provide an environment where our students learn to know and trust God; love ministering to others; and pursue academic excellence.

Our Vision

Equipping young minds who will impact their world, with an authentic faith, for life and eternity.


Our Goals

CS Lewis wrote that “The task of the modern day educator is not to cut down jungles but to irrigate deserts”.

In a world of shifting values and moral laxity, a Christian education develops a strong foundation of ethics and morality. San Clemente Christian School’s goal is to provide children with a biblical worldview while maintaining a high level of academic excellence and transforming the lives of children into the image of Jesus Christ.

Deuteronomy 6 says “Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children.”At San Clemente

Christian School we provide not only a formal education but also stress the importance of spiritual development, learning through service, and development of lifelong leadership skills.
