About Sandhills

A Classical Christian School in Moore County, NC

Sandhills Classical Christian Schools (SCCS) offers Preschool classes through Grade 12. We are distinctly Christian and intentionally Classical in our teaching methodology.

We believe a Classical model of instruction that is founded upon a Biblical worldview best assists parents in fulfilling their God-given responsibility of educating their children to love the Lord their God with all their heart, all their mind, all their soul, and all their strength. Our curriculum has a strong emphasis in the Humanities and Moral Philosophy utilizing the developmental stages of the Trivium as tools of reasoning and learning. Use of Classical Christian pedagogy helps take students from wherever they are and elevate them to be the very best student they can be.

Our experienced teachers, low student/teacher ratio, academic rigor and focus upon moral character all combine to create a strong learning environment. Join us as we actively live out our mission of graduating citizens of excellence for the glory of God.

Sandhills Classical Christian School was founded in 1999 by three visionary leaders: Max Stanton, Jamie Bransford, and Dr. George James.

None of them had a school-aged child. All of them had a conviction that the area needed a quality Christian school. They researched educational models and selected the classical method for its focus on teaching children not just the facts but also how to think.

The founders launched Sandhills Classical with five kindergarteners at a local church. Today the school has a thriving student body of more than 600 children in its preschool, grammar, logic, and rhetoric programs. It operates at four locations throughout the Sandhills, with its main campus in Whispering Pines, North Carolina.
