Stockdale Christian School exists to educate students from Christian families, leading students to believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior, achieve excellence, and serve others.
Stockdale Christian Schools was established to provide a quality Christian educational program on the highest spiritual, moral and academic levels. It provides students a true perspective of their lives, world, and universe, as revealed through the Holy Scriptures; to inculcate in each child, with the cooperation of home and church, the moral strength, spiritual insight, and academic integrity necessary to live a life that would bring glory and honor to God.
Stockdale Christian School is one of the few schools in Bakersfield that is accredited by WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges), ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International), and CITR (Commission on International and Transregional Accreditation).
Stockdale Christian School was first accredited in 1984 and has continued through scheduled visits by the accrediting committees. Each visit resulted in the school receiving a 6 year accreditation term, the longest term a school can receive. When an accreditation team visits a school, they scrutinize every area of the school program including mission, philosophy, curriculum, faculty, finance, facility, school services, etc. Each team visit concludes with the visiting team identifying commendations and recommendations for the school to address. This positions the school to continually improve and refine its program.
Accreditation is important to parents, because it provides evidence that quality exists in its program. Stockdale Christian School is pleased with its superior record of maintaining its accredited status since 1984. It is our desire to provide the very best in Christian education.
