About Us

“They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.” Psalm 1:3

South Olive Christian (SOCS) is a non-denominational PK-8 Christian School in Holland, Michigan. 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.

Our goal is to raise up Christian young adults who are able to go into the world with a heart for God, a mind trained in discernment, and an unchanging standard by which to live. The relationship that children have with their Lord and Savior is developed and strengthened at home and in the classroom.

“By Faith”

Welcome to the 2023-24 SOCS theme – “By Faith.” Throughout this school year, we will center our focus around Romans 1:17, “For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “But the righteous man shall live by faith.”  Each month, we will concentrate on a different “by Faith” action, delving deeper into God’s calling for our lives.

As part of our journey, students will have the opportunity to discover men and women of the Bible who have demonstrated bold faith. It promises to be a fantastic year of spiritual growth for all our students as we embark on this transformative exploration of faith. Together, we will learn valuable lessons from the lives of those who have faithfully walked with God, seeking to apply these principles in our own lives.
