Welcome to South Shore Christian School! At South Shore, students learn that the world and everything in it belongs to God. As Christian educators we are called to “train a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it.” (Prov.22:6) We strive to help students see that God’s plan of salvation is at work in every area of learning.
We promote both spiritual growth and high academic standards offered by the Ontario curriculum and ACSI resources. The objective of our instructional program is to prepare students for secondary education and beyond. While our students enjoy close teacher involvement and improved learning opportunities in our small class sizes, our enrolment continues to grow each year – we are currently up to 98 students!
Our school day begins in Chapel with devotions, Bible stories and verses, music and prayer. Parents, grandparents and babies are our daily guests as we worship together! In class, Christian values are emphasized throughout the day, as we teach students how to love and care for one another, using Jesus as an example. Bible class is taught daily to all grades – our focus is to honour God in all we do!
At South Shore, we believe that parents are our children’s first and best teachers. We work to cooperate closely with parents as our partners in every phase of our students’ development, always offering assistance in addressing each child’s unique learning style.
It has been said that it takes a village to raise a child…along with our dedicated parents, we also have caring community volunteers assisting with reading groups, preparing reading material for the younger grades, counting fundraising money, cooking and baking for food days, driving on field trips, assisting with the bell choir and art classes, monitoring children during recess and fundraising outside the school.
Our extracurricular activities include cross-country running, soccer, basketball, floor hockey, track and field, baseball, Fundraising Kids’ Club, talent show, JK – Gr.4 choir and Gr.3-8 choir. Many thanks to our dedicated staff and volunteers for running all our extracurricular activities!
We’re grateful that our talented Miss Julia Bueckert volunteers to lead our JK – Gr.4 choir; she is also our resident piano teacher.
At South Shore, homeschool families have the option of enrolling on a part time basis. We strive to partner with families and work together to meet the educational needs of their children. Every family is different and every child has unique needs. We encourage you to meet with us and discuss what a unique part time enrollment schedule may look like for your family. We also welcome our homeschool children to join our school choirs.
It is our expectation that our students develop a strong sense of responsibility to others, as witnessed by our outreach programs wherein students are involved with the Salvation Army food drive and Christmas basket preparation, Windsor Warming Crew, Coats for Kids, Gleaners, Samaritan’s Purse shoeboxes, Communities in Bloom clean-up, adopting our Compassion Child and singing for seniors. We are definitely making a positive impact not only in our community, but other parts of the world, as well!
We believe that our students should recognize and use their God-given gifts and talents and become all that God intended them to be, as we are encouraged by our theme this year: “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5: 14-16)
At South Shore, we are faith-based, child-centred and family-focused – we are in the business of producing future Christian leaders who will impact their community and beyond.
So if you’re looking for a school where faith meets excellence, come and visit us at South Shore…we’re waiting for you!
