SCS Strategic Plan


In order to fulfill our mission to train students in partnership with families to think, live, love, and lead as Christians through programs of academic excellence based upon a Biblical worldview, we have put together a strategic plan.
The desired end results at SCS are that graduates will be well-prepared academically, well-prepared biblically, well-prepared to live and espouse a Biblical worldview, and well-prepared to engage the world socially.
At the center of our existence is to create flourishing students who meet those ends. In order to have flourishing students, we know we need flourishing educators and a flourishing school. In using the Flourishing School Culture Instrument and Model for our school, the strategic plan is arranged around the 5 domains of the Flourishing School Culture Model: Purpose, Relationships, Teaching & Learning, Expertise & Resources, and Well-Being. We believe these categories are relevant and helpful in planning strategically for the future.
We believe that our school is being called towards healthy growth in order to serve more Christian families in Statesville and surrounding areas and have created the following strategic plan to facilitate growth and development.
