In keeping with Southwest Christian School’s mission statement, which reads in part: “to provide a Christ-centered, college-preparatory education”, the parallel mission statement of the SCS Library is to model the example of Jesus Christ while providing services and bibliographic resources that support the academic and informational needs of the school community. In so doing, the primary function of the Library is to support and reflect the curriculum within a Christ-centered environment.
The Library serves students, faculty, parents, administration, and staff. The Librarian works in partnership with faculty members to develop the collection as well as to enhance the learning experience outside of the classroom. To this end, bibliographic instruction; reference services; online database searching; and the circulation of books, reserves, and audiovisual materials contribute directly to the faculty’s pedagogic success.
The library maintains current subscriptions to many online databases as well as other instructional technology including TurnItIn.com and more.
