Your Partner in Christian Education
Since 1959, San Jose Christian School has been partnering with Christian families to provide students with a strong foundation for life. We prepare students for success in high school and beyond by maintaining a standard of academic excellence and giving students opportunities from a young age to engage with the world around them.
At SJCS, students at every level are taught to discern and make a difference in the world through faith-infused curriculum that is age-appropriate. Every one of our teachers is a committed Christian with a passion for mentoring young people and teaching the Whole Child. Students are individually known and valued by teachers who support their physical, spiritual, and social development.
Proverbs 22:6 says, “Start children off in the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Raised within a Christian home, Christian school, and Christian church, SJCS graduates are prepared to be world-changers who transform culture for Jesus Christ.
In the fall of 1959, after years of planning, a group of dedicated parents from area Reformed churches opened the doors of a new Christian school for their children. They felt a sense of responsibility to God, a sacred agreement or covenant with Him. In line with Proverbs 22:6, these parents wanted to raise their children for a life of love and service for God, engaging in spiritual formation together.
Their commitment extended to academic training as well, heeding Christ's call in Matthew 22:37 to "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." These founders understood that the spiritual and intellectual facets of education are not meant to compete with each other; rather they bear equal weight and importance in producing responsible, effective citizens of God's Kingdom.
Over the past six decades, San Jose Christian School has held tightly to the core principles of its founding. The Lord has blessed the school with students, teachers, parents, administrators, and board members who live out the SJCS mission in a tangible way.
Since 1988, SJCS has operated from its current campus location in Campbell. In 2009 San Jose Christian School opened its California state-licensed Preschool with the Infant Care Center following in 2013.
More than 50 churches and dozens of ministry leaders are represented in the SJCS community across our programs. At SJCS, students have a tangible example of how the body of Christ comes together and how we as Christians support one another.
San Jose Christian School JK-8 holds dual accreditation by Christian Schools International (CSI) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). We are proud to be one of only three schools in the country to hold dual accreditation from CSI and WASC.
