The Southwest Christian Board of Trustees agree to uphold the mission “to provide a Christ centered college preparatory education that graduates young adults equipped as Christian leaders in the world” and the philosophy of Southwest Christian School which acknowledges reliance upon God as Creator, Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and the Holy Spirit as the Divine Presence in the world.
Board members have personally chosen to follow Jesus and depend on Him for wisdom and guidance. They seek to live out Christian principles and beliefs in their personal and professional life and have committed to encourage and promote the spiritual, intellectual, physical and social growth of SCS students, parents, faculty and staff.
