Upper School

We believe that each student has unique God-given talents and abilities and it is our responsibility to give our students the opportunity to develop these gifts. Our program is truly comprehensive with opportunities for Spiritual Growth, Academic Excellence, Leadership Training, and Social Development. We strive to meet the needs of the individual throughout their transitional middle school years into their high school years. To most fully accomplish this goal we clearly separate the Upper School into two parts: The middle school (grades 6-8) and the high school (grades 9-12).

 

Middle School

SCS’s middle school is viewed as a "bridge" between childhood and the teenage years. During these early adolescent years, our qualified and committed teachers guide students through this changing period in life with challenging academic instruction combined with the development of critical thinking skills.  A unique addition to our curriculum is our Enrichment rotation. During each year of middle school, our students receive concentrated instruction in writing, vocabulary building, reading and study skills, and computer studies. 
 

High School

The extensive high school curriculum is organized around the core subjects of English, mathematics, science, social studies, technology skills, fine arts, foreign languages, Bible, and physical education. Advanced Placement and Honors classes are available in many subject areas.  We offer both health and driver education (through an independent driving school). SCS is the only high school, public or private, in Wicomico County that offers on-site Dual Enrollment classes with Wor-Wic Community College. Students can attend Wor-Wic without stepping out of our building.
 

Comprehensive Education

To complete the comprehensive education, students are given opportunity to establish rewarding friendships that are important to self-esteem during several activities throughout the school year. Making new friends is easy during the Spiritual Emphasis Days held at the beginning of the school year. There are socials and game nights throughout the year.  SCS also gives students the opportunity to participate in many extracurricular pursuits, including athletics, Student Government Association, pep band, choir, studio art, and two yearly drama performances (A fall drama and a spring musical). There are over 20 clubs, leadership organizations, and service organizations affiliated with the upper school. Truly each student can find a place to shine at SCS!
