Join Our Lion Pride
We invite you to join our SWCS Lion Pride! You can learn more about Southwestern Christian School through our website or by contacting our office. We invite you to schedule a personal tour of our campus to see for yourself the Christ-centered, loving environment which is Southwestern Christian School. We've served the Yuma community for the past 26 years offering excellence in Christian education by providing academic rigor and leadership development centered around strong Christian values.
Because where we spend eternity matters, Southwestern Christian School, in partnership with our families, is educating and mentoring lifelong learners to walk with Jesus Christ. We believe Southwestern Christian School to be an extension of the home and church and not to be a substitution or replacement of them. It is our purpose to assist parents in meeting their God-given responsibility of training by providing an environment in which students can achieve their highest potential--spiritually, mentally, academically, emotionally, and physically.
Proverbs 22:6 states, "Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it." This is the calling we have as parents and teachers. Our staff would be honored to partner with you and your family to "train up" your child and empowering them through knowledge and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. We are here to provide an exemplary learning environment where children learn about Christ and the salvation He offers, as well as experience the love of Christ firsthand. Our goals is to help your child develop a deep and personal relationship with Jesus so they impact the world and those around them for Christ!
"SWCS is an incredible environment where I grew not only as a student, but as a believer. The teachers are so passionate about instilling Christ-like values in each student and that is something I will forever cherish." --Kacey Turner, SWCS Alumni and 2015 Miss Yuma County
"I attended SWCS from kinder all the way up to my 8th grade year. This school has been such a blessing in my life and I thank my parents for the opportunity they gave me through it. This school provides a top quality education that will leave a positive life long impact. The teachers are among the highest quality AI have had the pleasure of learning under, and to this day, I still hold the utmost respect and adoration for all of them. I would highly recommend this school as it will prepare the next generation both mentally and spiritually, and in today's dark world, both traits are invaluable." --Hayden Leiker, SWCS Alumni
