Student Activities

Santiam Christian offers a wide variety of clubs and organizations for all grade levels.  Clubs can be an amazing way for students to get involved with the school while having fun with friends.  Ranging from choir to robotics there are many interesting activities.


Senior High (grades 9-12)

FFA – SC is the only private school in Oregon to offer FFA and one of only a few nationwide. This program offers skill development in areas from soil science to public speaking, leadership to floral design, ag construction to tractor safety, and more! FFA provides a wide variety of practical experience, valuable in most any industry.

Robotics – HS students design and build their own robot and take it into battle in the FIRST Robotics Competition. This program is often referred to as a “sport of the mind,” giving high school students and their adult mentors the opportunity to work and create together to solve a common problem. Strategy, creativity, 3D printing, design collaboration – STEM rich skills learning environment. 

International Missions TripsStudents have the opportunity to participate in international mission trips.  

For several years SC students has worked with The Caribbean Christian Center for the Deaf in Jamaica. This ministry supports marginalized people through its multiple campuses and businesses. Students not only work, but build relationships with people who otherwise often feel isolated. 

Yearbook – Student staff learn graphic design techniques, software, publishing, and photographic arts to produce a fantastic yearbook. 

Drama – Each year Santiam Christian presents two full-scale high school productions and one junior high production (directed & mentored by high school seniors). All performances are produced in our own black box theater.

Worship Teams – Students lead worship on a weekly basis for our chapel times, and it is a wonderful way to utilize the musical giftings God has given us! There is an audition and interview process in place. Email Mrs. Riddle for more details. The team includes guitar (electric and acoustic), keyboard, drums, bass, cajon, and vocalists. We aim to glorify God and do everything with excellence.
