Our Calling

 
Every SCS employee plays an important role in fulfilling the SCS mission. Principals, cleaners, teachers, secretaries, coaches, counselors, and groundskeepers take seriously our shared responsibility to inspire learners while pointing them to Jesus and modeling what it looks like to live committed to Him. Working at SCS is not just a job. It is a calling.
 

Our Educators
The single most important factor in the quality of an education is the quality of a school's teaching faculty. Our highly-qualified, passionate, and dedicated teachers are what makes an SCS education excellent. All of our teachers are licensed and many hold master’s degrees, yet each one pursues professional development opportunities to sharpen their teaching skills. In the classroom, they inspire students to think critically, to reason well, and to express themselves clearly. Beyond the classroom, they put their expansive interests, talents, and experiences to work inspiring students to grow as leaders, athletes, artists, actors, musicians, and followers of Jesus.

Our Support Staff
SCS support staff share the beliefs, passions, and vision of our educators, adding tremendous value to the SCS experience. They are highly-qualified for their roles and dedicated to formando personas íntegras.

Overseas Hires

 
SCS understands that following God’s call to pick up and move to a foreign country is a costly venture. To help with the transition, SCS offers generous support to those who are making an international move to the Domincan Republic for the primary purpose of working at SCS.
