A Word from Mrs. Carter
Thank you for the opportunity to introduce you to our school. In 1999, a group of parents from the Great Swamp Baptist church felt called of God to create a local Christian school. That fall, 27 students enrolled in our K3 through second grades. We now employ 23 faculty and staff and have 250+ students in K3 through the twelfth grade. Step of Faith continues to be a growing ministry of Great Swamp Church.
The Lord has blessed our school in many ways. We are able to offer small class sizes allowing for challenging interaction between student and teacher. Utilizing curriculum that is written from an intentionally Biblical worldview, our dedicated teachers present challenging academics in a thoroughly Christian environment. Equally important are the morals, the Biblical values, the love of God and of country that are instilled in our boys and girls throughout the course of the school day. Step of Faith is fully accredited by the American Association of Christian Schools.
Each morning our teachers open the word of God and share familiar Bible stories, lead in uplifting singing and provide a special time of prayer. Students participate in Junior (K3-6th ) or Senior (7 chapel on Fridays. Classes are busy creating projects, planning trips and diligently mastering information. Our students take music, computer, art, library and physical education classes in addition to their academic studies. Chorus and music theory are offered at the senior high level and our band is in its second year. Step of Faith participates in the Duke Young Scholar program and in the South Carolina Association of Christian Schools Fine Arts Festival and is a member of the National Association of Student Councils. The SFCA Chargers compete in Varsity Volleyball, Soccer, Basketball and Baseball.
As a member of SCACS, our students take the nationally recognized Iowa Test of Basic Skills and the Cognitive Abilities Test each spring. Our young people consistently score among the highest in the state. We are indeed busy following the Lord’s command: “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might! Eccles.9:10” We believe in not only offering you, our neighbors, a good education, but the very best ~ as unto the Lord.
Please be assured that I am as interested in your child’s education as you are. I take my job very personally; and will see to the best interest of each of our children. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
In Christian Service,
Mrs. Donna M. Carter
