Welcome to South Olive Christian School

We live in a challenging and uncertain 21st Century. South Olive Christian School partners with families to raise up the next
generation of fearless Kingdom builders. For 70 years, SOCS families have believed access to a Christ-centered education that fosters a love for Jesus Christ should be accessible to ALL regardless of economic means.

developed and strengthened at home and in the classroom.

“ 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! “

-Kindergarten Parent

“ 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!” 

-4th Grade Parent

“ 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! “

-6th Grade Parent

“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.”
