Mission Statement

Shoreline Christian School’s goal for each student is to awaken a love for God, a desire for learning, and an orientation toward service to others.



Seek: At Shoreline Christian School (SCS) we seek to inspire each student to develop the gifts and abilities God has given them to their fullest potential for Him.
Create: Because God created us in His image and we desire to honor Him, we strive to create an environment in which students can pursue excellence without fear of failure, and in which love for God and one another is demonstrated in all interactions.

Our Logo


Shoreline Christian School is located on the beautiful coast of Florence, Oregon. It is founded on Biblical
principles which center in the Trinity -- God our loving, heavenly Father; Jesus our Savior; and the Holy
Spirit, our Guide. The three waves in our logo represent this Unity in diversity, a principle we strive to
emulate in our relationships with others as well.

The waves, in the form of an open book, represent our divine source of wisdom, the Holy Bible, and our
quest for knowledge through rigorous academic scholarship.

As waves flow out in ever-widening currents that eventually encompass the whole world, Shoreline Christian
School endeavors to prepare students to reach out to the world in loving service. We strive to inspire our
students to develop their God-given talents to their full potential so that they can more effectively share
God’s love and care in a hurting world, and spread the good news of salvation and Jesus’ imminent return
to reclaim His people to live eternally with Him.

Our Philosophy

God is the source of all knowledge and wisdom and He expresses His will for us in the Bible. Shoreline Christian School is established as a service of the Florence Seventh-day Adventist Church to the families and children of the Florence area. 

We believe that staff, parents, and children working together will produce the highest levels of academic, spiritual, and character development within a quality Christian educational setting. We provide an educational experience in a safe and encouraging atmosphere with many opportunities for the balanced development of our students.

It is our purpose to provide a Christ-centered academic environment where students are nourished spiritually, intellectually, socially, physically, and emotionally. We believe that while knowledge of facts and the ability to think are necessary for a person to succeed in life, they are not all-inclusive. True success in life includes a positive outlook on life, which comes from a complete faith in God and acceptance of His love.
