SOUTHPORT— In 1995, the vision of the original planning committee for Southport Christian School was to offer a preschool through high school curriculum.

On March 20, that vision took one step closer to becoming a reality as representatives from Southport Christian School and Moffitt Builders of Oak Island broke ground on new classroom facilities to house Southport Christian High School.

Southport Christian School, located at 4457-A Flagship Ave., Southport, is currently enrolling ninth grade for the school’s opening in fall of 2017.  It has  already reached 80 percent of its enrollment goal.

The Southport Christian High School will be a combination of online and seated instruction program and its teacher facilitators have been certified. Students will be able to take honors classes as freshmen and AP classes beginning junior year.

Unlike students in the preschool to grade eight programs, students of the Southport Christian High School will not have to wear a uniform, but will have a dress code.

For information, contact Lisa Kjome, Principal of Southport Christian School at (910) 457-5060.
