Upper School Missions

The sharing of Christian love through community service is a foundation at SouthLake Christian Academy. This requirement is based on our responsibility to respond to the Gospel's call to serve and the desire to have well rounded students and citizens. Our program is designed to enable students to respond in faith through meaningful service to care for those in need, including: the sick and suffering, children, the elderly and the poor. We are constantly seeking ways to develop our sense of service, reaching out to serve our community and our world. Our students look forward to participating in the service ministries and view it as a privilege to serve Christ in this significant way.

While the seniors focus on the plight of the street orphans in Peru by traveling to Peru and helping to construct a home for them, SouthLake faculty members focus on professional training for Bible teachers in the Peruvian public school system. Additionally, the juniors conduct local service learning through-out our community by participating in such as The Shining Hope Farm (theraputic riding for autistic children), Brookstone Christian School (inner city school children), Solomon House (lower income Hispanic Daycare Center) and The Oaks Nursing Facility. Our sophomores travel to South Carolina to work with widows to repair and rehab their homes through the Widow's Watch Ministry.

"...We are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ." II Corinthians 10:5

"The Mission of SouthLake Christian Academy is twofold. The first is to assist the Christian family by providing an education marked by a biblical worldview, academic excellence and affordability so that students are equipped to be salt and light for God's glory. The second is evangelical in scope, to present God's Word and biblical worldview daily to non-believers with the promise of God's redemptive plan, to be a force and voice for Jesus Christ that will resonate throughout non-believing families."
