SPCS is not enrolling for the 2023-2024 school year.

We are very sad to close SPCS at the end of this school year. The decision to close the school was made by church leadership and the church session members. If you have questions regarding the school closing or about the decision to close the school, please reach out to and an elder or pastor will get back to you. 



Welcome to Southport Presbyterian Christian School! We have been a ministry of Southport Presbyterian Church since 1978, and we have a longstanding tradition of excellence in Christian education.


SPCS is a state accredited elementary school serving kindergartners through fifth grade. Our outstanding staff provides classes in Social Studies, Language Arts, Math, Bible Classes, Science, Art, Physical Education, Library and Music.  Our preschool includes classes for two-year olds through pre-kindergarten. Our teachers are our greatest resource. Each member is a dedicated Christian with an excellent educational background. Each has the commitment and desire to serve children in the best way possible.


At SPCS, our mission is to provide a Christian education, teaching students to love God, love each other, and serve the world, while consistently focusing on student achievement and academic excellence.


In 1978, First Presbyterian Church of Southport members recognized a need for a Christian preschool. Southport Presbyterian Nursery School started with two classes of four-year olds. During the following years, as community interest heightened, the Preschool added classes for Two’s, Three’s, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten. SPNS parents who were church members, gained permission from the church Session to establish an elementary school session from 1986-1987. The name was changed to Southport Presbyterian Christian School and a first grade was formed. Second grade and a second/third grade combination followed as enrollment grew. A self-contained third grade became a reality in the 1992-1993 school year. Fourth grade was added for the 1996-1997 school year and fifth grade began after the “big move” to the McFarland Boulevard site in 1997-1998. The program now provides classes for children two years old through fifth grade.
