The Oak Lawn campus, like its sister schools in Tinley Park, offers a Christ-centered education from the Reformed understanding of the Christian faith. The schools are run by parents, who serve on the school organization's board of directors.
Southwest Chicago Christian Schools provide a Christ-centered learning community intent on "restoring God's word." Students are provided a high-quality education in the reformed tradition that "emphasizes the Lordship of Jesus Christ over all life. It prepares students spiritually, socially, academically and physically to serve society effectively and glorify God by honoring Him in all aspects of life," the school's mission statement reads.
Tuition assistance is available to families that qualify. At least one parent must be able to express to a living faith in Jesus Christ. Families need not attend a Reformed home church to send their children to Southwest Chicago Christian.
