Student Life at SWCHS


Our goal is for each student to know they belong. We want them to experience a friendly, deep, and rich community. High school is a fantastic time to explore different activities and discover what passions God has wired students with. We believe our community provides many experiences for students to get involved—either as a leader or participant—trying new activities and striving in programs they are passionate about.

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.
