Spearfish Classical Christian School was founded in the fall of 2003 by Michele Thomson. That first year began with eight students who, along with their families, were ready for a new academic challenge and were eager to try this new path known as Classical Education! The years following saw God’s hand at work as enrollment continued to steadily grow. With the additional students came the ability to hire more staff. Word quickly spread regarding the exceptional Classical Education offered and the school has been growing ever since.
We believe the Classical model provides students with a solid educational foundation that will benefit them throughout their entire life. It is our goal to foster the growth of character and academic excellence in our students through the Trivium Model. Preparing students classically as well as technologically is a priority. SCCS desires graduates to be able to share God’s truth through all types of communication.
You will find that God has provided SCCS with a staff of gifted Christian educators who seek to provide our students with many fun and challenging learning opportunities. Individual attention to each student is a priority. We keep our class sizes small with a 12:1 student to teacher ratio, allowing teachers to monitor student progress more closely.
We consider it a privilege and an honor to provide a classically-based education to the students in our area. If you are seeking a new path, we hope you’ll check us out! Set up an appointment for a tour at any time.
