Sussex Christian School (SCS) was founded in 1982 and has been dedicated to providing an excellent, caring and student-centred education ever since. We offer a quality education for children in Kindergarten to Grade 12, as well as daycare, preschool, and after school programming through our Little Lights and Shine Centres. SCS students are nurtured in a way that helps create a confidence that prepares them to take their own special place in the world.
Thank you for your interest in Sussex Christian School! You will find SCS to be a place where Christian faith meets excellence in academics. I am excited about offering a program to the community and around the world that educates the “whole person”. Our teachers are innovative and excited about preparing our students for future success. Our school promises to be an extension of your family, academically and spiritually. We believe God entrusts children to families and it is our job to come alongside, not only to teach all academic subjects with excellence, but also to mold outstanding character.
I can’t think of a better school for students to attend in Canada. At SCS, we promote and deliver critical thinking skills, excellence in academics, travel programs for students 5-12, drama, athletics, biblical integration, chapel, and a deep care and concern for your child(ren). Students are courted to gain an understanding of the purpose that God has created them for and then we work to get them prepared for that journey.
SCS graduates go on to any post-secondary school and professions that they desire. Alumni have been invited and received scholarships from the University of New Brunswick, Crandall University, Kingswood University, Dalhousie University, Liberty University, New Brunswick Community College, Nova Scotia Agricultural College, Holland College, Houghton College, University of Toronto, St. Thomas University, University of Waterloo, and many more. Within these schools our students have studied law, early childhood education, computer science, journalism, education, biology, kinesiology, electrical, engineering, theatre, art, music, counselling, psychology, business, policing, paramedic training, nursing, theology, English, and agriculture. Sussex Christian School students are nurtured in such a way that they breed confidence and are being prepared to take their own special place in the world. Please let me know if we can assist you in any way.
