SCS Stories: Burgard Family
What do you love about Sheboygan Christian School?
We love our school family! Our entire family has built friendships with members of the SCS Community. We know we always have a partner in our children’s educational and spiritual growth. There are always opportunities to serve alongside your school family and Jesus is the focus around everything that goes on here.
Why did you choose Sheboygan Christian School for your children?
Ten years ago, a friend encouraged us to tour SCS in preparation of our daughter going to pre-school. Private school was not on our radar. God’s Plan was evident after the first week of school; we immediately knew this was the school that our children would attend. The opportunity to have our children attend a Christian school from pre-school through 12th grade is such a huge asset to Sheboygan County and the surrounding community.
In what ways have you seen your children grow in their faith as a result of their experience at SCS?
It is amazing to watch our children mature and grow in their faith. You can see them tying it all together! Teachers pray for and with our children. Their spiritual growth is evident in how they interact with those around them, the choices they make, and their servant heart.
In what ways have you seen your children grow academically as a result of their experience at SCS?
Academically, SCS ensures each student receives individual attention in all subjects. We value the trust and care shown by each teacher to ensure our children are challenged and are always working at their full God-given potential.
One of our key values is partnership. How does SCS partner with your family to raise and educate your children?
The old saying, “It takes a village to raise a child” is to totally true! If you are looking for a true partner in education; this is the place! As a parent, you are made aware of concerns and praises alike. You have the opportunity to work together with the teacher to develop the best plan for your child to be challenged and set goals for them to reach their full potential.
What sets SCS apart from other schools?
The whole package! As a parent, you can feel confident that your child is enrolled at a school that exceeds State academic metrics while resting in the fact that you have a Community around you that will walk alongside your child to prepare their hearts and minds to go out into the World prepared to serve Our Lord.
What would you say to a prospective family considering enrollment at Sheboygan Christian School?
SCS is an investment in your children’s LIFE that will immerse them in a loving Community that walks alongside them as though they were their own children. The students are encouraged to think, feel, and act from a Christ-centered worldview to mirror what they are being taught within their home and church. SCS not only exceeds State educational metrics but equips students socially and spiritually to go out into the World with the tools to serve Christ in all that they do.
