Have you ever experienced the joy of changing a life? That is precisely why Salem Christian School exists. We desire to change lives and make an eternal impact. If I may, I would like to share with you why Salem Christian School is an eternal investment worth making. This school, since its inception in 1979, has been dedicated to developing students who love God with all their mind, body, and soul through challenging academics and a vibrant student life. Furthermore, we are seeking partners who understand our mission and share our passion for the next generation.
It is exciting to be part of a growing school. Salem Christian School has been growing in many aspects beyond enrollment and programs. Our school has grown in its hunger for excellence. It has developed a strong college and career guidance program. It has added numerous programs and academic courses for students. We have seen God answering prayers, giving direction, and blessing us in ways that were unexpected. God willing, our future looks bright.
In addition to some positive growth, during our recent self-study we found some areas that we need to address within our strategic plan. Currently, we are engaged in procuring 6 desperately needed classrooms in addition to refurbishing some current space in order to accommodate an expanding program and student body. Additionally, we have begun addressing our gymnasium needs. We have been blessed with a gymnasium that is heavily used for co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. In fact, 96% of our students are involved in extra-curricular activities that use the gymnasium. We are very grateful for what God has provided and continue to use what we have to His glory. We are committed to no debt; therefore, we need to raise an additional $200,000 to meet these completion and gymnasium renovation needs. But, we know that He has great things in store for this important ministry in the future and always supplies what His ministries need.
We humbly request that you invest into Salem Christian School so that we can address the needed programmatic, infra-structure, and physical plant upgrades. If you desire any additional information, please let me know. We want you to be as confident in your investment of financial resources as we are.
