Spiritual Life

SouthLake Christian strives to equip students to influence society for Christ.


In academics, arts, and sports, Biblical principles form the core of our identity at SouthLake Christian. We aim to nurture each student's spiritual journey as they explore, comprehend, and follow God's teachings, developing a Christian perspective on life. From the earliest grades, students participate in weekly chapel services and receive daily Bible lessons tailored to their age. As students grow older, additional academic and extracurricular options are available to test their faith and deepen their understanding of God's nature and His plan for their lives. Our goal is to help students mature in wisdom and knowledge of who God is and His purpose for them.



SouthLake Christian focuses on empowering students to positively influence culture for Christ. Our identity is rooted in Biblical truth across academics, fine arts, and athletics.


Discipleship extends beyond the mere impartation of academic knowledge; it encompasses the holistic development of students in alignment with Christian values and doctrines.


SouthLake Christian's continuing commitment to enhance the spiritual growth of its students and faculty through classroom Bible instruction, weekly and annual school-wide chapels.

Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
-Isaiah 40:30-31

“We are not highly religious.  What our children learn is solely from school. The other day my daughter asked if she could buy a new Bible because hers was a bit beat up.  When it came, I noticed it stayed by her bedside. While we were hanging out in her room last night and I asked why her Bible was sitting on her nightstand.  Her eyes lit up, and she excitedly leaned over and reached for her Bible.  She said, ‘look Mom. It came with blank lines in the margins.  I decided to keep it at home so when I’m feeling down, I can read a bit and take notes.  It makes me feel happy again’. Her bible was highlighted, and notes were taken.  You all have made a difference in her life.”
