South Olive Christian School is PROUD to be celebrating our 70th Birthday!
South Olive Christian School was started in 1951 in the basement of the Old Church which was located right next door to the current school. It was started after some of the church members went around to local families asking if they would be interested in sending their children to a Christian School. From there- a two room school house was built and later two additions were added on to the current building. It is a great honor and rare to have been able to teach multiple generations of students. THANK YOU for your support and generosity!!
We believe students should not only excel in academics but achieve socially, mentally, and in their faith. We set forth the importance of community throughout the entire school. Encouraging parents as well as students to get involved, developing fellowship with younger and older students alike, and welcoming new students with open arms.
Regardless of your family’s income level, South Olive Christain School will provide quality education from a biblical perspective. Our “Affordable for All Program” helps families afford a Christian Education without the worry of extra financial burden. Every child is important to us, from their education to their everyday life, no child will slip through cracks. It is not only a goal but a calling to provide your child with the confidence and skill sets to flourish in their life ahead.
Accepting students from preschool through 8th grade, as well as partnering with homeschool students, we have a place in our family for you and your children here at South Olive Christian School.
Equipping students with wisdom and knowledge to become effective Christ-followers and bring peace and restoration to earth..
“ My child struggled every day to come to school before South Olive. His teachers had to pull him off of me sobbing and it absolutely broke my heart. He constantly would beg and plead for me to let him stay home as he just wasn’t happy in his class. Day one of going to South Olive was a night and day difference. My child felt so welcomed and loved that by day two I couldn’t park fast enough before he was jumping out of the car, running to play with his friends. I am SO thankful we switched to South Olive Christian School! “
“ My daughter was struggling in her class before coming to South Olive. She was getting lost in the hustle and bustle of a large class and it was beginning to show in her work. When she came to South Olive the teacher was able to work one on one with her and catch up to where she needed to be!”

“ My daughter was getting bullied at her last school. It broke my heart to hear her come home complaining about getting picked on. We met with her teachers and principle and nothing was changing. We recently came over to South Olive and couldn’t believe the difference. Bullying is not an issue here because of the small classes and all the students care about each other. If there is a problem- it is dealt with immediately. Moving to South Olive Christian was the greatest choice we could have done for our daughter. Her confidence is back and she LOVES school now! “

“My daughter is a social butterfly with a large imagination. She gravitates towards art-like things and is by nature extremely curious. We have noticed as her parents that with the small classroom sizes she is able to exceed in her academics. She is getting extra attention that pushes her and challenges her as school comes easy to her. Every student in her class she calls her friend. Which as a parent makes my heart sing. Every birthday party, we invite the whole class, their siblings & parents as well as the teacher because we love the community her classroom has.”
