Student Life

Student Life at Southwest Christian is rich, encouraging and fun! 

Our goal is for each student to know they belong... experience a friendly and deep, rich community and family feeling for their entire high school careers. Additionally, high school is a fantastic time to meet new friends and strengthen old friendships. 

Student Life begins with a common vision to seek, know, live and proclaim the Truth of Jesus Christ and expands into all areas of life for the student. Each student is loved and valued as a child of God and then encouraged to grow in their love for God and others. 

At the start of their time at Southwest Christian, each student will be connected to a small group of other students in a discipleship group. This is a great starting point for connection, social and service opportunities and individual spiritual growth. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to worship together as a student body and within small group settings. Students will have the chance to serve, share, and witness through Southwest Christian's all-school service days and will be challenged to grow academically and relationally. Students will grow on the athletic field, in the fine arts, and within many social gatherings and community building events.  

Throughout their high school years, students will have opportunities to connect, participate, evangelize and serve. Here are just a few opportunities for SWCHS students:

  • Go crazy at our annual All-School Retreat
  • Get connected with a small group of students through our discipleship groups
  • Serve on student council

Student Life at Southwest Christian brings students together... to grow closer to God and each other.

"To say that Southwest has impacted our family is an extreme understatement. It has been a joy to be part of the Southwest community.  We have loved getting to know our children's classmates - truly a wonderful peer group for each of them who have continually encouraged them in character and faith."
