The Christian Unified School District was founded in 1965 by Dr. Tim LaHaye to make available to the people of San Diego and the surrounding areas an educational program which would provide for the total educational program of the child, spiritually, morally, mentally, socially, and physically.
THE MISSION of Christian Unified Schools of San Diego is to train students to think, learn and live from a Biblical worldview. What this means at Christian Unified is that each of our teachers are committed followers of Christ, dedicated to academic excellence and focused on nurturing their students faith in God. A Biblical worldview means that the parent has God-given authority over a childs life and we are to partner with the parent in the educational experience. We believe our mission also prepares our students for a life of dedication and service to God and others.
