About SCS

Welcome to SCS!

Stockdale Christian School is an energetic, positive, and dynamic learning community.

Students are inspired and encouraged to discover their God-given gifts, talents, and passions. We believe a great education is one that cultivates the whole person – Heart, Mind, Body, and Soul.

For over 40 years, SCS has prepared students to believe, achieve, and serve. We strive to provide students with a biblical worldview of their lives, world, and universe, as revealed through God’s Word. Our goal, through the cooperation of home and church, is to develop the moral strength, spiritual insight, and academic integrity for each student to live a life that would bring glory and honor to God.

We welcome you and your family to visit our school campus. Come join us!

History of SCS

Stockdale Christian School was conceived in the heart of Dr. Fred Cottriel, then Senior Pastor, and many concerned parents of First Assembly of God Church. Their desire was to see children trained in quality education with a strong Christian foundation. With the fervent conviction that God’s Word is the basis of all truth, Stockdale Christian Schools opened its doors in the Fall of 1977 with an enrollment of 63 students and a staff of three. SCS is an extension of the ministry of First Assembly of God.
