Although many of our families attend churches in the Reformed tradition, we are not affiliated with any one church. Our faculty teach from a Reformed Christian perspective. However, we welcome families from many different Christian denominations. Families at SCCS represent 20 denominations including Baptist, Non-Denominational, Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Lutheran, Christian Reformed, and more.
