Uniform Dress Code

School uniforms are available through French Toast. The SRCS uniform dress code is intended to be a practical, simple, and standardized expression of the principles of neatness and modesty. We believe that standardized guidelines result in fewer distractions for teachers and students and, therefore, provide an environment most conducive to the learning process.



Total enrollment is 515 students in grades PreK-12. 60% of K-12 students receive financial aid.



SRCS subscribes to FACTS, a comprehensive K-12 student information system for online school and class information. Teachers, parents, and students have their own accounts to access class information, grades, assignments, and general school information.


Student Life

Seven Rivers Christian School is more than a premier academic environment. It is also a family in Christ--a true community where students and teachers learn together, have fun together, and walk in Christ together as they foster lifelong relationships and help one another grow intellectually and spiritually. Growing together means attending chapel, worshipping, and learning more about God’s creation and His word. It also means fellowshipping together and celebrating community. Whether it's dressing for spirit week, decorating for homecoming or prom, sharing peanuts at the kindergarten circus, hitting a home run, camping out with the second graders, cheering at the high school pep rally, winning a blue ribbon on Field Day, or scooping salsa at the teacher-hosted AP study session, SRCS students enjoy life together.


School Spirit

School colors are Navy and Carolina Blue, and our mascot is the SRCS Warrior.
