Please plan to join us for this informational meeting on the Sarasota Christian School campus where you will hear from SCS administration, faculty, high school students and parents about curriculum, dual enrollment options, scheduling, college and career planning, middle school to high school transition, athletics, extra-curricular activities and much more.
