Sheldon Christian School prepares God's children for a lifetime of Kingdom service by providing quality God-centered education.
Since 1917, Sheldon Christian School has provided students in preschool through eighth grade with a high-quality education taught from a Christian perspective. As teachers, administrators and board members, we prioritize the academic, relational and spiritual growth of our students, preparing them for a lifetime of service in God’s Kingdom.
Our well-rounded integrated curriculum includes math, reading, language arts, social studies, science, fine arts, physical education, computer instruction and Bible classes. We also provide a wide variety of extracurricular and interscholastic activities.
Our fully-licensed instructors ensure that classwork meets or exceeds both state and federal standards. In addition to being skilled teachers, they are mature Christians whose Christian love and care sets our education apart.
Partners in education and faith
Sheldon Christian School is proud to partner with Christian Schools International (CSI), an organization serving more than 400 Christian schools across the globe. CSI supports Sheldon Christian’s staff and students through accreditation, curriculum, employee benefit and leadership development services.
Our primary goal is preparing students for a life-long journey as disciples of Christ. We seek to open students’ eyes, hearts and minds to the beauty and order of God’s creation while also helping them to understand the effects of sin on His world.
Statement of Purpose
To prepare the child as an image-bearer of God for meaningful participation in society.

To guide the child in understanding that the radical consequences of such a commitment affects all areas and relationships of life.
God’s inspired, infallible revelation of Himself, the nature of man and creation, His redemptive plan through Jesus Christ on man’s behalf, and His will for mankind. (II Timothy 3:16-17, Psalm 111:10, James 3:17)
Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the Father is creator and sustainer of the universe, the Son is Savior of those who, through grace, believe in Him, the Holy Spirit dwells in our hearts to motivate us to seek God and serve Him. (Genesis 1:1, John 3:16, I Corinthians 2:12)
Created perfect, but distorted by man’s fall into sin. Only Christ’s redemptive work can restore all of creation, including man, to the glorification of God. (Romans 1:21, Ephesians 4:18, Romans 12:2)
Process by which our children are led to see the entire word as God’s handiwork and God’s plan of reconciliation. Includes the development and expression of the whole child: social, emotional, intellectual, physical, aesthetic, and spiritual. Enables the child to gain knowledge of God’s kingdom and his/her responsibilities as a child of the King. Children of believers must receive an education which is firmly rooted in the Word of God. (Col. 2:3)
Created in the image of God, the student requires an education which nurtures an understanding of his/her privilege and responsibility as a disciple of Jesus Christ. (Genesis 1:27, Romans 12:1, Matthew 28:19-20)
Guide every student into a deeper understanding of God and His Creation. Help every student to perceive their unique opportunities to serve their Lord. (Ephesians 4:11)
Have the primary responsibility to provide a God-Centered education for their children because of God’s covenantal relationship with His believers. This education should be carried out in the home, the church, and in schools whose purpose is consistent with the Word of God. (Deuteronomy 6:6-7, Proverbs 22:6, Romans 12:5)
Embraces parents, children, and the larger body of Christians. Because Christian education contributes directly to the advancement of Christ’s Kingdom, it is the obligation of the entire Christian community to pray for, establish, and financially support Christian Schools.
(I Peter 2:9, Genesis 17:7, Act 2:39)
