Matthew 6:21

 

A Sound Investment

 
Your giving is a sound investment in the lives of students at Santiago Christian School. Any gift of any size supports our every day mission of Shaping the Lives of those who will Shape the Nation.
 
Who supports SCS?
Since 1967, the prayerful participation and service of many has enabled quality Christian education at SCS. Our faithful supporters include past teachers, alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends who believe that SCS's mission is rooted in an eternal hope. This hope gives true purpose and true partnership.
 
Why support SCS?
In every classroom, there are bright, curious students exploring the world, discovering new talents, asking intelligent questions, learning to think critically, growing as leaders, and sharpening their global perspective. All day every day, we educate students to reflect Jesus in character, wisdom, and influence. Our main priority is to produce graduates who are personas íntegras equipped to impact the world.
 
SCS is blessed with parents who pay their tuition on time and so is debt-free. However, tuition does not cover the cost of many capital improvements. SCS does not have an endowment, a surplus of money from which to draw, and it does not receive American or Dominican government support. SCS facility improvements are largely dependent upon the generosity of its supporters.

Anyone Can Lead

December 07, 2020
By Sarah Cohen

When Maria Fernanda (7th grade) transferred to Santiago Christian School, she did not know what to expect. Coming from a Spanish-speaking school to an English-language emersion experience, she was motivated to make lasting friendships with her peers. When reflecting on the transition, she noted, "Getting involved in sports and music really helped me find my place at SCS At SCS, I had the opportunity to participate in the Biznovator camp which was an amazing experience! I want to study Business Management, so it was a really wonderful opportunity. Over the years, the many extracurricular activities and opportunities have been the greatest part of my journey at SCS."

Santiago Christian School places a unique emphasis on servant leadership, and Maria Fernanda is already using her gifts and talents to serve others on campus. In the 5th grade, she helped establish the Middle School Leadership Team and has been elected to lead three years in a row. As a student leader, she takes her responsibilities very seriously and does her best to be an example of humility and integrity to everyone around her. One of her initiatives last year made a particular impact on the community: "Last year, I got to work with the other middle school leaders to do a fundraiser for children with cancer. We were able to collect over 16,000 plastic bottle caps, every 100 caps purchased one round of chemotherapy for children in the Dominican Republic. This really taught me that you are never too young to make a difference. It brought so much joy and hope to our campus, and it blessed people in need! Everyone can do something to help their community."

SCS is committed to equipping every student to be leaders in their community and to make positive impacts for Christ in the world. SCS is a place where every child can feel empowered to make a difference. As she reflected on her time at SCS so far and what makes SCS unique, Maria Fernanda said, "All of the teachers at SCS are kind. And they care about every student as a person. SCS is helping me develop all my passions, everything from music and business, to leadership and justice."
