Accreditation & Affiliation

Springfield Christian School is accredited by the State of Ohio and received its charter from the Ohio State Board of Education in 1977. The school is interdenominational with a student body representing over thirty churches in the Springfield and surrounding areas.

Statement of Faith

We believe in one God – the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – who created man by a direct immediate act. We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures are divinely inspired and contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living. We believe man is born with a fallen nature and is in need of spiritual regeneration, without which he is eternally lost. Jesus Christ is eternally one with the Father and became incarnate by the virgin birth and died for our sins. He arose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and shall return again to the world. All who repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ are saved from the dominion of sin and that by the continuing indwelling ministry of the Holy Spirit, the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. Our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place. We believe that the Church of God is composed of all spiritually regenerated persons, who are called to a life of righteous works, to witness God’s saving grace in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Educational Philosophy

The philosophy of education of Springfield Christian School is rooted deeply in the Bible and accepted as the Word of God for all of life’s faith and practice. These scriptures communicate the existence of the Triune God, the fact that He created and providentially sustains continuously through Jesus Christ what man calls the universe, and that man was created by God and bears His image (Genesis 1:1, Isaiah 45:18, John 1:1, Hebrews 1:1-3, John 1:3, Colossians 1:15-19, and Genesis 1:26-27). Because God created all that is, all the particulars of life in our universe are related, with their unity secured in God Himself. Thus, all truth is God’s truth. True education, then, involves finding true relationship not only between man and God, but also between and among things, in order to find their true significance as imputed by their Creator, the study of whom must be the core of educational curricula (Colossians 2:3, Proverbs 9:10, and Ecclesiastes 12:12). To be known truly, all subjects must be studied under the scrutiny of God’s Word (Psalm 36:9).
