Just wanted to send out a quick and heartfelt THANK YOU to JICS and to Ms Yontz + Mrs Ryann for making our daughter's first weeks at a new school so amazing. Annabelle LOVES her new school, her sweet teachers, and the new playground. We are so relieved, happy, and thankful for JICS. Here's to a great year ahead! - The Wolfe Family

James Island Christian School provides an opportunity for academic excellence within a Christ-centered environment. James Island Christian School provides an opportunity for academic excellence within a Christ-centered environment that compliments the teaching of the home and the church.

We believe that the ultimate responsibility for the education of a child rests with the parent. Therefore, there must be a partnership between parent and school, each supporting and reinforcing the other. At James Island Christian School, we provide for the education of the whole child: spiritually, mentally, socially, and physically. The truth, as revealed in God’s Word, is the foundation for all subject matter. We believe that the Bible states moral absolutes; therefore, affirming our opposition to moral relativism, situational ethics, and values clarification. “In Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Colossians 2:3

Operating as usual

“A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices. For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn. Fall on your knees; O hear the Angel voices! O night divine, O night when Christ was born. O night, O Holy night, O night divine!”

We thank God for every member of our JICS family. Merry Christmas! #JICS #jamesislandchristianschool

What’s better than a bride for Christmas? Six brides! A group of JICS staff members just finished up a Bible study on what it means to be the bride of Christ. This Christmas, we encourage you to take the time to fully digest all that it means to be so loved by God that He sent His only Son. #JICS #jamesislandchristianschool

Our middle school Life Lab class has already been life changing this year. The students put together 25 first aid kits and donated them to New Covenant Church and their homeless ministry.

Life Lab teaches lessons that will be utilized in every season of life, and our students have met each challenge with eagerness and joy! We love our middle schoolers! #JICS #jamesislandchristianschool

Our middle school program added a Life Lab course this year. The students have exceeded our expectations during each class. Recently, after learning about health and safety from professionals, the students created first aid bags. They prayed over the bags and included handwritten notes. The bags were donated to a local homeless shelter. Through Life Lab, we have seen that our middle school students have a heart for serving others! 💙

Thank you to the volunteers who helped train and motivate our students to be safety conscious. We couldn’t have completed our wellness course effectively without you! #JICS #jamesislandchristianschool
