Academic Excellence in a Christ-Centered Environment
Siouxland Christian School is known for our ability to provide academic excellence to our diverse student body. From students’ first day of preschool to their last day of 12th-grade, our compassionate staff challenges and supports our students to achieve to the best of their ability.
"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it."Proverbs 22:6
Parents choose to enroll their children at Siouxland Christian because of our many academic benefits that prepare them for their future, including career counseling. This results in developing students who are not only “college-ready,” but students who are “college-successful” during their high school years. Many Siouxland Christian students even earn associate degrees alongside their high school diplomas.

As with all comprehensive schools, Siouxland Christian students participate in formative (homework, class discussion, quizzes) and summative (tests, final exams, projects) assessments on a regular basis. Below is a complete list of testing for our student body.
Students in grades 2 through 11 participate in the Iowa Assessments required by the state of Iowa.
Students in grades 10 and 11 take the PSAT each fall. This test measures the likelihood of success as a college freshman.
Students in grades 10 through 12 are strongly encouraged to take the ACT. This test is a college admission and acceptance/placement tool.
We have also partnered with the National Guard to provide the ASVAB which is not only utilized for military entrance but to also determine areas of strength with regard to academic and vocational/career interests. This test is available to all students grades 10 through 12.
