A Message from our Principal

Hello and welcome to Stockdale Christian School.  Please take some time to peruse our website and see the many programs and activities we have to offer your family.  We know that choosing the right school is a very important decision and we hope you will give us the opportunity to share with you the benefits of a Christian education. 

Over the last 40 years, our outstanding faculty has been devoted to seeing our students Achieve, Believe, and Serve. SCS continues to be a place where students receive strong Biblical teaching along with excellent academics.  We would love to give you a tour of our campus and talk with you regarding how Stockdale Christian can partner with you to help your child grow both academically and spiritually.

Thank you for visiting our website and we look forward to hearing from you!

Vocal Music

At Stockdale Christian School classroom music is taught from a distinctively Christian viewpoint. Students learn that musical ability is a gift from God and is to be developed for the benefit of God and others as well as for themselves. Spiritual growth is fostered as students are challenged to use their God-given talents in the most excellent way possible to honor the Lord and minister to others. Biblical truth is integrated into classroom activities when appropriate to the lesson. Students in Grades K-6 participate in music on a weekly basis. With the exception of K classes which meet once a week, all elementary classes meet twice weekly for 30-40 minutes. Using Bob Jones University Press graded music curriculum, students are taught theory, music appreciation, and are introduced to each family of instruments in the orchestra.

A wide variety of classroom activities includes reading and writing music; listening and drawing; singing, movement, and playing simple rhythm or melody instruments. Top-notch musical programs are the hi-light of each season. Grades K-3 and Grades 4-5 treat family and friends to entertaining Christmas Concerts and Spring Concerts each year.

At Stockdale Christian School we are blessed to have Mrs. Orndorff as our music teacher.  Cindy Orndorff has been teaching vocal music at SCS since 1995.  A graduate of Cincinnati Christian University (as salutatorian of her class) with a double major in vocal performance and Biblical studies, she has also served in churches as a director of both adult and children's choirs for over 30 years.  During that time, she has directed over 100 children's musicals.  In addition to her full-time role at SCS, Cindy (along with her husband) has served as ministry director for the children's choirs at Valley Baptist Church since 2002.  Both of the Orndorff children are SCS graduates, so Cindy's initial association with SCS was as a parent.  Then one day, her daughter (a fifth grader at the time) overheard Mr. Ferris comment that the school was looking for an elementary music teacher, prompting her to declare, "My mommy could do that."  Mr. Ferris invited Cindy in for an interview and she has been "doing that" ever since!
