Our History

South Shore Christian School began out of a desire to educate our children in a local Christian setting where the Bible and daily curriculum could be integrated and where children could be free to pray and to worship God.  Although many parents in our community desired this, a non-denominational elementary school was not available in Leamington.

In the beginning of 2005 there was an initiative to meet with several local churches to present a vision of what could exist in our town.  This was the beginning of South Shore Christian School.

A Board of Directors was established, non-profit status was sought and qualified teachers were hired.  In the fall of 2005, South Shore Christian School opened its doors and began its first of many exciting days with a chapel service, singing and prayer.  Since that time God has blessed the school with an enthusiastic group of students, a great group of dedicated parents and a committed staff and Board of Directors.
