Our school motto is “Teaching minds and training hearts for God.” We want our students to come to our school to not only learn how to “make a living” but we want to teachthem how to live for God in their home, church and community. Our school’s logo is a redbox with the SCCS letters inside. “Inside the box” we want to be a consistent place wherestudents, teachers, parents and alumni are always striving to do what is right. Many timesgood deeds shine even brighter in a world that has no hope. A teenager that smiles or talksto adults, a teacher that goes out to lunch with their students, this is not uncommon at SCCS;a school where students actually sing out and worship God during chapel. We like to call itliving “out of the box.”We have a special school where we foster students to win or lose gracefully, be a boldwitness to people who don’t know Jesus as their personal Savior, to be creative, take theinitiative, be a servant-leader, do right no matter what anyone else is doing, be kind, responsible, generous, be joyful in times of trials, but most importantly be what God wants you to be… that’s living “outside the box!” We seek to honor God by simply teaching minds and training hearts to live for God. Since 1982 we have prepared students to make a living not justoutside the box, but how to daily live for God inside the box. Living a dynamic Christian life can shine bright when our talents andspiritual gifts are used to clearly point to a great and loving God. This is our mission and purpose at SCCS and for life to be lived“out of the box!” in our Christian lives. Our hope for this publication is to better document and clearly manifest the great work thatGod is doing at SCCS.

1 Corinthians 12:4,5 says “Now there are varieties of gifts but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of ministries,and the same Lord; There are varieties of effects, but it is the same God who works all things in all persons. But to each one isgiven the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.”
Second, we can strengthen our witness for the Lord Jesus Christ when people see genuine faith and authentic Christianity. Wemust pay attention to one another and show our fundamental respect for one another…….there is nothing easy about that, but it isso important. In doing this, we grow together and we learn from one another. And as we think about one another’s gifts, we can bemindful that our gifts span the community from the youngest to oldest members of our school family. Many times, it is the youngestmembers of an organization that come closest to speaking the truth – a great hidden blessing of our K-12 school. Together, we canhave a stronger testimony of the gospel – so let’s shine bright. Third, we can equip Christian leaders that eventually become morally and spiritually mature.
