Educating Lives in Christ

Welcome to Our School

Southwest MN Christian High School recognizes that our children are image-bearers of God. We are committed to develop each student's spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social, physical, and academic potential in a caring Christian community where all activities seek to be motivated by our commitment to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We help students learn to study the world in the light of the Bible. We strive to help students understand how each area of life fits into God's great plan and how God's will is important in all of life. Biblically based education guides children toward their commitment to serve God and neighbor in all aspects of life.

Carry The Light/Donation Sale:

The annual Carry The Light/Donation Sale will be held on Friday, November 22. The goal this year is $57,500. This is 1/3 of the total fundraising budget which allows us to aid all families with the cost of tuition. WE CAN DO THIS WITH YOUR HELP! If each student could have four individuals attend and participate in the event, we would be a long way towards meeting the goals to support our future community, family, and faith leaders by providing them with a quality Christian education. 

Please click on the CTL tab above for more information and auction items (also available by clicking on this link List of Donation Sale Items

If you are unable to attend, financial support may be directed to the school at 550 Elizabeth Street, Edgerton, MN  56128
