The mission of Sioux Center Christian School is to disciple God’s children by equipping them with a knowledge and understanding of Christ and His creation so that they can obediently serve God and others as they work and play.
Every Student TREASURED, Every Student TRAINED, Every Student TRANSFORMED
FOR YOUR INFORMATION

- On January 19, Sioux Center Community will not have school so the public school buses will not be running the morning or afternoon routes. Only the Christian School buses (2014 and 2020) will be running. All other students will need transportation to and from school.
