  The School

The first class of twelve kindergarten students began in March of 2007.  Each year since, a new grade has been added so that at the start of the 2013 school year, K3, K4, K5, and first through fifth grades were offered.  STCS emphasizes Bible, English, and computer classes.  This, coupled with a low cost, attracts many families from the surrounding poor community.  Parents are required to attend a monthly seminar- a venue in which the gospel is clearly presented as well as parenting and family orientation.  Many of the families in this economically depressed community would not be able to afford any education at all, much less a quality Christian and bilingual curricula, if it weren't for the Family Work Program (FWP) that STCS offers.  FWP is a scholarship program accessed on a case by case evaluation of the individual family's financial standing.  Rather than encourage a welfare mentality, FWP provides the opportunity for families to participate in assigned manual labor within their existing skill sets on the premises, making improvements on the property where both the school and the children's home infrastructure continue to be developed.  Not only do the individual students benefit from the exposure to the Scripture and gospel message at an early age; there is the family connection that is used to reach into homes providing spiritual counsel and guidance as the Lord works in the hearts of each family member.

In 2010 Mark deJager commenced work as the full-time administrator of STCS. Many different volunteers have come to help teach English and the hope is to have long-term believers with teaching credentials come to fill this need.

The Lord has provided the funds and volunteers needed to build new classrooms and other needed structures as the school grows by adding a grade each year.
