From small beginnings in 1988, Southcity Christian Schools has developed into what we believe is the leading school on the South Coast of KZN. Set on pristine, neat grounds with a magnificent view overlooking the beautiful Ramsgate village and the Indian Ocean, we are indeed privileged to watch the whales at play and savour the ocean breeze daily. Sounds incredible – but its true!
Southcity Christian Schools’ is an affordable, co-educational, independent school, registered as a NPO, a PBO and is also registered with the Department of Education. The Board of Directors, under which Southcity Christian Schools operates, consists solely of the elders of Southcity Church. The Board of Directors is responsible for setting the vision, direction, values, and strategy of the schools. The CEO of SCS is required to be an elder in Southcity Church by set policy.
As a private, Christian lead organization, opportunities for ministry to take place in SCS are consistently created. Ministry is generally carried out by men and women Southcity Church have a relationship with and trust. The environment in which learners are educated is determined by Christ-followers and as such, the expectation is that every learner is exposed to the Christian life and the person of Jesus Christ on a daily basis. The School makes consistent donations from their funds into Christian community work according to Biblical understanding.
We offer a balanced, Christian education to potentially more than 800 pupils ranging from Grade 000 to Grade 12, operating under the Independent Education Board syllabus. Our current enrolment is in the region of 710 pupils.
