[11/07/20]   This is what defines an SC education! Thank you Mac Martin McLain. Now that is teaching!!

Back in September I met a new student, coming from public school. The way he slouched in my desk, the way he presented himself... I was worried. Then he proceeded to tell me that he was a D or an F student... and I was really worried.

Thankfully I was his last rotation of the evening. We sat and talked for 10 minutes, he and I, with his family there. I told him he couldn't keep defining himself by those grades. That he was capable. That he had to change his mentality. That SC would be rigorous but his teachers cared and would do whatever we could to help him become his best self.

You guys, it's the end of quarter 1 today and this boy is finishing with an 86% in my class. There aren't words to use to describe how proud of him I am. The remote instruction he had last spring vs this fall is monumentally different and he rose to the challenge.

I believe he will look back at this moment in time and remember it as the year his life changed. Forever. Would you say a quick prayer for this boy? His life is gonna be different because his family made a huge sacrifice, because I am surrounded by teachers who care about the whole person, and because God's Word does not return void. And he's hearing it now in Bible class... and in Science class... and in US History class... and in English class... and in Math class... to name a few.

[05/23/20]   Santiam Christian wants to congratulate four of our esteemed SC alumni.

Selected by their local constituents in yesterday’s election, these four women have entered into local leadership where they will stand tall for what they believe.

Courtney Bangs (Courtney Hart Bangs) – SC’97 – Elected Clatsop County Commissioner (first time candidate)
Shelly Boshart Davis – SC’98 – Republican Primary – House District 15 (Incumbant)
Erin Noakes Reynolds – SC’99 – Florence City Manager
Katie Boshart Glaser – SC’05 – Republican Primary – House District 11 (first time candidate)

Governmental leadership is not for the faint of heart. These ladies’ sacrificial service makes us incredibly proud. They are great examples for our students today.

Congratulations, Ladies!



Our Superintendent Lance Villers
Gotta love it!

[06/05/19]   Have you heard? Did you see the invite? Next Tuesday, June 11th from 1 - 3pm we are celebrating our 40 year anniversary and the receipt of the land trust deed - we finally own our land for $ 1. EVERYONE is invited. It is being held on the Santiam Christian campus in the new high school building. There will be people to point the way to park close to the Prince of Peace church. The challenge has been finding contact information for so many people and we are praying God brings everyone who wants to attend.

I need your help, please forward this email or call someone who you know who would love to join in. I am concerned people who want to attend will not be notified.

Just RSVP by email any information to Esther at [email protected] and call your friends. We will have lots of cookies, coffee and water served in our spacious library.

Matt Stauser and Chuck Perry will be leading praise and worship. Hear about Santiam Christians future from Superintendent Lance Villers, share all your miracles and stories, while nibbling on cookies and coffee. Plus we will end our time together with prayer lead by Stan Baker.

Remember, it begins at 1pm on June 11th.

Thank you all for your prayers and praise to God for His wonderful gifts. Things we could only pray for but have now come true.

[01/07/19]   “I wrote Slay for black teens who live between worlds as I did, who feel pressure to be one version of themselves at work or school, and only get to be themselves among people who share their experiences.”

CONGRATULATIONS TO 2009 GRAD BRITTNEY COONEY-MORRIS on this amazing book, screenplay and encouraging story! Brittney is married to SC Grad Steve Morris.

Slay will be published simultaneously in hardcover, audio, and digital formats under the Simon Pulse imprint in fall 2019. The author and agent, who retain television/film rights, report that they have received queries to date from close to 20 TV and movie studios interested in adapting the book for the big or small screen. Nelson Literary Agency also disclosed that it is fielding “multiple offers” from U.K. pub
