A foundational belief at Santa Barbara Christian School is that we were created by a God who loves us for a deep and meaningful purpose. Our goal in Bible is for each student to develop an understanding of God’s love and in turn live a life of meaning and purpose. Elementary Bible classes teach a scope and sequence that introduces students to the Bible in an age appropriate manner and outlines God’s great love for His people. In middle school, students have the opportunity to go through the entire Bible learning the stories and lessons that teach faith, values and character.
The weekly chapel program gives our students the opportunity to hear from pastors and teachers in our community and emphasizes the importance of the heart as well as the mind in following Christ.
At SBCS, we believe that faith is not limited to Chapels and Bible class but permeates all things. Godly teachers incorporate Biblical teaching into all areas of study while emphasizing those beliefs in common to all believers. While we teach from a Christian worldview, SBCS is open and welcoming to students regardless of their religious affiliation. The school is comprised of families who desire a common set of character traits to be developed in their children: love, integrity, humility, care for their fellow man, and a passion for making the world a better place.
