  • Pre-Kindergarten

    Somerset Christian School (SCS) offers three day, four day, or five day Pre-Kindergarten programs from 8:00 am to 11:30 am for children who are four (or five) years old and potty-trained.

    This Kindergarten readiness program includes the basics like the alphabet, numbers, colors, and seasons, in addition to daily Bible lessons and activities. Ms. Yoder, with over 20 years' experience, uses a variety of methods including learning centers, free play, and calendar time to teach important concepts and to share the love of Christ.

  • kindergarten - fifth grade

    Students in Kindergarten - Fifth grades are in self-contained classrooms with teachers who totally love the Lord. All teachers are certified by the state of Pennsylvania and hold at least a Bachelor's degree. In 2014, we took a strong stand on the importance of reading with the implementation of a Guided Reading program. In one year, we have seen dramatic results in comprehension and fluency in all subjects, not just Reading.

    Beginning in First grade, all students are presented with a laptop which teachers use to incorporate technology, research topics, keyboarding assignments, etc. Textbooks came from a variety of publishers, but all embedded with a Christian worldview of education. Core course studies include Reading, English, Spelling, History, Math, Science and Bible.

  • middle school -- 6th - 8th grades

    Our Middle School students have probably the toughest schedules. Not only do they have all the core courses of English/Literature, Science, Math, History, Geography, and Bible, but they also have Chorus and Pre-Spanish classes. At this stage in their education, we strive to introduce them to a variety of experiences so as to expose them to many career paths.

  • high school -- 9th - 12th grades

    At the High School level, the focus turns to graduation requirements. Our students can choose from a variety of courses in Science, Math, History, Geography, plus many electives including Music Appreciation, Chorus, Family & Consumer Science and Foreign Languages. English/Literature and Bible are required core subjects taught every year.
