SCS at a Glance

Located in South Bend, Indiana, our campus is ideal for local families and those from surrounding counties. We are within minutes from downtown South Bend, the University of Notre Dame and Memorial Hospital, and only 90 miles from Chicago.

Our beautiful 30-acre campus takes up a full city block. Classrooms rest at the center of an historic property, with the campus building situated among trees and athletic fields. Designated laboratories, regulation-size basketball courts, and clay and glass kilns are just a few highlights of the quality facilities that help support and enrich our varied curriculum. A campus addition, including updated classrooms, was completed in fall 2015. Discover more about our campus.
