Statement of Philosophy

James Island Christian School is all about family. We exist to provide an opportunity for academic excellence within a Christ-centered environment that complements the teaching that is already happening in the home and the church. We know that we are partnering with parents to help kids grow and walk in the purpose they were created for by God. We don’t view JICS kids as just “students” but as future leaders, future husbands and wives, future parents who will someday be raising their own kids in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. If you desire for your child to experience education in a Christ-centered, biblically-based environment that holds academic excellence in high regard, all while cultivating a service-driven mindset in your child, then James Island Christian School is the choice for you.
