At Santa Fe Christian Schools, we believe that the Lower School years are foundational. We strive to shape the mind and the heart as each student learns to think more critically and grow in his or her faith. We believe that every child has the potential for greatness. Accomplished faculty, state-of-the-art resources, and research-proven teaching methods engage and challenge students at all developmental stages. By integrating Christian faith into all aspects of school life from a young age, we prepare the whole student spiritually, academically, physically and socially in a safe and nurturing environment. We are a closed campus and employ numerous safeguards designed to protect our student population. We provide full-time security staff and a full-time registered nurse. Our strong elementary school is one of the reasons we were selected as Best Private School in San Diego for 2010 and 2011. SFC Lower School received the 2011 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence award.
