As a Christ-centered, college preparatory school, the Excellence Fund is essential to enhance programs, facilities, opportunities, and achieve a margin of excellence not funded by tuition. It helps fund essentials including professional development, curriculum enhancement, new and innovative technology, campus improvements, tuition subsidies, and more. The Excellence Fund helps support student activities and leadership development, counseling, and spiritual life--all cornerstones of our commitment to Christ. The Excellence Fund enriches the educational experience of every SCS student and allows us to honor our rich history, secure a bright future, leave a lasting legacy, and fulfill our mission. At Southwest Christian School, we believe in pursuing excellence as a way to honor Christ.
