SWCHS uses an on-line scheduler program called Pick-a-Time to schedule all of our conferences.

You will need the names of your student’s teachers before scheduling conferences. You do not need to visit with every teacher, only those that you desire to meet at conference time.

Learning Specialists: If your student is on an ILP and you would like to meet with their Learning Specialist, you will note Barb Rengel and Kellen Clarksean are listed along with the teachers. You may make appointments with them as well.

School Counselors: If you would like to meet with your student’s school counselor, please email them to set up a time that is mutually agreeable: Heidi Gravelle (last names A-L) or Katie Larson (last names M-Z).

From An Alumni Parent

"To say that Southwest Christian impacted our family is an extreme understatement. It has been a joy to be part of the Southwest community. It was a joy getting to know our (now grown) children's classmates—truly a wonderful peer group for each of them who have continually encouraged them in character and faith." Lynne Jackson (Daniel '06, Bethany '08, Noah '10)
