For the Love of Your Child
SCSBC is producing a high-quality inspirational promotional video that our schools will be able to use to help prospective families understand the “why” of Christian education and allow them to see how God is shaping the hearts and lives of students through learning in a Christian context. Busy and exciting filming days have been hosted by several SCSBC schools.
