Why do you send your child off to school? For most of us, the very first answer that comes to mind is to learn. We equate school with academics. And yes, learning is a huge part of the school experience.
But it’s also a social experience. A growing experience. A move toward independence.
These are huge steps your child will take while they’re at school – apart from you.
So since school is about so much more than academics, how can you make sure your child is getting the most thorough and integrated support during their growing-up years? What things should you keep in mind to make sure their full school experience is the best – and most beneficial – it can possibly be?
You’ll need to look at the quality and methodology of instruction inside the classroom. Extracurricular opportunities outside the classroom. Teachers’ commitment to individual students, not just a subject area. Opportunities for students’ personal growth.
Is there a school out there than can really offer a one-of-a-kind package? If you look at Seattle Christian Schools, you’ll find the answer is yes.
At Seattle Christian, we get it. Even though you understand the value of the whole picture, academics are still key when choosing a school for your child. So we offer a high-quality academic experience enhanced with exciting, innovative experiences such as robotics to help students expand their interest in engineering and other fast-growing STEM fields.
But we go beyond superb academics by teaching relationally. We’re student-centered, with a willingness on the parts of teachers, staff, parents, and administrators to do whatever is necessary to open doors for students.
We also foster a student culture that encourages reflection, collaboration, and innovation. Every student has an opportunity to explore their passions and pursue their goals, while extracurricular activities allow students to continue these pursuits outside the classroom through involvement in athletics, music, fine and performing arts, leadership, and community service.
And in addition to all that, students have opportunities to encounter Christ, grow spiritually, and truly impact their world.
Teachers at Seattle Christian care deeply about their students’ growth – academic, personal, and spiritual – as they mature into well-rounded individuals.
But you don’t have to take our word for it. Come and see for yourself.
“I cannot think of another school that offers the breadth of spiritual, academic and extracurricular excellence that Seattle Christian offers.” – Matt Althoff, Secondary Principal
