James Island Christian School exists to provide an opportunity for academic excellence within a Christ-centered environment that complements the teaching of the home and the church. Everything we do is aligned with our four core values: Christ-Centered, Biblically-Based, Academically Excellent, and Service Driven. Our ultimate goal is to prepare the next generation to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to be exactly who He created them to be, both academically and spiritually.
With low teacher to student ratios, we offer a curriculum that integrates faith and learning. Qualified teachers follow a curriculum that is aligned to standards, ensuring that students are prepared at the end of each grade for the next level. The curriculum is presented through hands-on activities, age appropriate technology, collaboration, and differentiated lessons. All students have a daily Bible class and attend regularly scheduled chapel time where students learn to worship, pray, study the Bible, and apply all they have learned.
Using a whole child approach, in addition to the academic and spiritual focus, the physical growth of our students is addressed with an offering of a variety of sports beginning at age 3 with our Junior Lions program. Grade 5 students can be part of competitive volleyball, basketball, swimming, soccer, and tennis teams.
Our campus spans approximately six acres on beautiful James Island and encompasses a multi-complex including a well-equipped science lab, computer lab, and gymnasium.
