  Mission Statement  


The mission of South Christian Elementary School is to create a safe, stimulating environment in which each child is motivated to succeed.



  About The School  

South Christian Elementary

South Christian is located on Highway 117 in the rural community of Herndon in southern Christian County. South Christian has a diverse and ever changing student population. Some of our students come from Oak Grove and others come from the surrounding farming community. Our proximity to the Fort Campbell military base means we have the privilege to educate a large number of students whose parents are serving our country.


South Christian was the top performing school in Christian County during the school years 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. In 2012 we were in the top 40 ranking for the state of Kentucky.

At South Christian, we have Guidelines for Success to help our students be successful.  Our guidelines are written as an acronym for DREAM.
