In the fall, seventh-grade classes have the opportunity to attend an educational U.S. history trip in Boston. Students will visit Quincy Market, Plimoth Patuxet, the Mayflower, Boston Library, Old Church tour and even a fun stop at Fenway park!
Eighth-grade classes will enjoy an exciting U.S. history trip while exploring our country’s rich heritage by visiting attractions such as the Arlington National Cemetery, the Capitol, the Library of Congress, the Supreme Court, the National Archives, the Smithsonian museums, the White House, and all the monuments and memorials.
High school students are offered the adventure of a lifetime with the SCS Minimester program. This program offers a wide range of travel, enrichment, and global, national, and local service opportunities that will further equip students to become Christian leaders in the world.
Past experiences include building and renovating homes in Honduras and Jamaica, serving orphans in Kenya and in rural South Africa, exploring geology, glaciology, and volcanoes in Iceland, and engaging in masterclass acting workshops on Broadway.
SCS seeks to awaken students to the God-given talents in them while educating them in the disciplines of the arts.
