SWCS School History

Founded in 1978 by the San Diego Christian Foundation, Southwestern Christian School has been offering quality Christian education to San Diego and Chula Vista families for over 30 years. The Foundation is a non-profit California corporation and is composed primarily of members of the Churches of Christ throughout San Diego County. Our school is located in beautiful Chula Vista, just a few miles south of downtown San Diego. Southwestern Christian School is a private, elementary and middle school serving Kindergarten through Eighth Grade students.

The SDCF purposes for SWCS is to provide a high quality, complete educational system offering children academic, social, emotional, physical and spiritual disciplines. Christian principles will permeate and dominate all aspects of the students’ learning experience.

We reach our objectives through daily Bible classes, daily prayer, and weekly chapel. The ABeka curriculum forms the backbone of the school’s academic core in grades K-5th and also supports the concept of God as the source of truth. Each subject area is supplemented with additional curricular resources such as Everyday Math (K-5th), Being a Writer (K-6th), and Studies Weekly Science and Social Studies (K-6th.)  In addition to providing the highest academic standards, we supplement the core curriculum with enrichment classes such as Beyond Technology computer education, physical education, and music. SWCS meets all state mandated subject matter requirements. All the professional teaching staff at Southwestern Christian School possesses a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited university and hold a valid state teaching credential.  The majority of our teaching staff also hold Masters degrees as well.
Southwestern Christian School is a long-standing member of Association of Christian Schools International, ACSI, and participates in many inter-school competitions.
