What are the regular school hours?

Currently, our arrivals and dismissals are staggered to allow for social distancing.

During a non-Covid school year, school starts at 8:15 a.m. Students may arrive as early as 7:45 a.m. and participate in DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) time. During Covid protocols being in place we are staggering school start and dismissal times. School start and dismissal times are as follows:

  • Pre-Kindergarten - Kindergarten Full Day: 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

  • Pre-Kindergarten - Kindergarten Half Day: 8:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

  • First - Sixth Grade: 8:15 - 3:30 p.m.

Our Pre-K program is the entry to Scofield Christian School. We desire that Pre-K students attend for the duration of the school day, five days a week, to build the foundation for the journey of learning as a Scofield Soldier.

All students of Scofield Christian School may register for our After School Care program. 

Decisions for the 2021-22 schedule have not been made at this time.

Your choice of a junior high school reflects your personal preference and your child and family's evolving needs and interests.
