Our Leaders

Dr. Jeffery VanGoethem, Senior Pastor, Scofield Church

Welcome to the website of Scofield Christian School! For many decades Scofield Church has invested in the lives of young people through a school focused on top-notch academics and exemplary training in the Christian faith. Our young graduates have gone on to distinguish themselves both as students and as Christian young people, capable of leading and serving in a needy world. We remain committed to assisting families and young people in being equipped for “every good work” (2Tim. 3:16-17) and built up in “all things that pertain to life and godliness” (2Pet. 1:3). May your association with Scofield Christian School be the blessing it has been for so many others. Our administration, staff, and faculty stand ready to minister to you and your family.

Dr. Traci Tucker, Head of School, Scofield Christian School

Thank you for your interest in Scofield Christian School!  We are excited that you are interested in our school for your child’s education.  We recognize that you, as your child’s parents/guardian, have the responsibility from The Lord to train up your child in the ways of the Lord (Pr. 22:6). Therefore, we partner with you in the training process. 

As a Christian educator for 30 years, I am committed to telling the next generation about the wonderful deeds of The Lord (Ps. 78:4) by incorporating the Bible, Biblical truths and principles throughout the curriculum.  It is the foundation of our school.  We believe each child is unique and wonderfully made in the image of God (Ps. 139:14) and are committed to developing those gifts to serve Jesus with their whole heart.  I look forward to working with you to see your child fulfill their God-given destiny.
