The purpose of Sumter Christian School is to by "teaching... present every man perfect in Christ Jesus" (Colossians 1:28). This purpose is consistent with the edification mandate God gave the church and the home, and thereby provides the "reason for being" for the Christian School. This institution proposes to educate the whole child for Christ and insists that every phase of the program contribute to attaining that goal. Physical education and interscholastic athletics develop the student's physical dimension; banquets, etc., refine his social graces; Bible classes, chapel, and, in a practical sense, every activity, address his spiritual needs; an outstanding faculty and a carefully constructed curriculum work in concert to provide superior academic training. This, we believe, accurately reflects the total growth of the Lord Jesus (Luke 2:52) and is the genius and essence of truly Christian education.
