Grace and Mercy


“You are more righteous than I,” he said. “You have treated me well, but I have treated you badly. You have just now told me about the good you did to me; the LORD delivered me into your hands, but you did not kill me. When a man finds his enemy, does he let him get away unharmed? May the LORD reward you well for the way you treated me today. I know that you will surely be king and that the kingdom of Israel will be established in your hands. Now swear to me by the LORD that you will not kill off my descendants or wipe out my name from my father’s family.” So David gave his oath to Saul.

1 Samuel 24:17-22

An SOCS Education emphasizes…

  1. Biblically based, God-glorifying, Christ-centered values throughout the entire life of the school.

  2. A close, supportive, and unified community that (a) works together to build God’s kingdom within the school and (b) witnesses to the wider community, leaving our God-honoring footprints wherever we go.

  3. An excellent education that equips our students to live as effective disciples of Christ, committed to continuous improvement and empowered to be agents of transformation in the world.

  4. A commitment to make SOCS education available to all families, regardless of income or background.
