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, centered on the learning and development of children. Our desire is to prepare and equip students for the challenges of an uncertain 21st Century world, with the foundations of a certain and unchanging God.

At South Olive Christian School, we believe that every student should receive the same consideration that we would want for our own children. At our school, the students and teachers are a family. The loving and healthy environment that exists has been created through the 70 years of dedication to outstanding education. The core of our desire is to educate students to the highest standards possible, while fostering a genuine love for Jesus Christ. We believe in high aspirations and expectations, creative solutions, and the genuine enjoyment that comes from a joy of learning.

South Olive Christian School is able to support church and family beliefs in a clear, consistent manner. Children hear the same message at home, school, and church. The goal is to build a strong, Christian young adult who is 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 can be developed and strengthened through the guidance of master teachers and positive peer groups.

“Created for a Purpose”

The South Olive Christian School Theme for the 2022-2023 is “created for a purpose.” Each year the school uses a new theme to live into and focus on throughout our studies and interactions with peers. The verse we drew from this year is Ephesians 2:10 which says, “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
