Here at Smithtown Christian School, we believe educating young people is a wonderful partnership between educators and parents. Our heart’s desire is for all our parents to grow in knowledge, wisdom and the grace of God in order to better nurture and lead their children and young adults. To that end, we offer the below helpful parenting resources, suggested by our guidance and counseling staff.
Take a look at these resources in all seasons of your parenting as we will update them and add to them periodically. If you have a suggested resource, let us know! May God guide you and prosper your efforts to educate and spiritually train up your children in the way that they should go. Together, let us lead all our students to have a heart for God, a mind for Truth, and a passion to change the World!

" The service-learning program at SCS goes hand and hand with Christian education. Students learn about loving Jesus and helping those in need. Then, they practice what they learn by going out and being the "hands and feet" of Jesus to their communities. "
Dr. Anna Ramos, SCS parent
" Knowing that our children are going to school and learning about Christ and hearing biblical truth that is not altered has confirmed to us over and over that SCS is the best choice we could make for our kids' education. "
