Southeast is

MORE THAN A SCHOOL

History

Southeast Christian School was established as Christian Way School in 1977 at Gateway Christian Church in Aurora, Colorado. Richard Achenbach, or “Mr. A” as he was affectionately known, was the founding principal. The school was supported by five Denver area Christian churches and started with less than 50 students.

After nearly 20 years in Aurora, the school moved to the Denver Tech Center in 1996 for the following two years. Our strong student base and parent support sustained us as we prayed for a more permanent home. In 1998 we became Jordan Christian School at our present location. In 2005 a new partnership was announced and we became Southeast Christian School, a ministry of Southeast Christian Church. Today the student body flourishes with nearly 500 preschool through 8th grade students!


Our Community

Southeast is more than a school, it is a community of Christ followers raising their children to have a personal relationship with Jesus. As an interdenominational school, our families come from many different churches throughout the area. Families choose Southeast in large part because they want their child to have a peer group with strong Christian values and a rigorous academic program.

The Students of Southeast

Students are the heart and soul of Southeast and we couldn’t be more proud of how they represent our school, their families and most importantly our Lord and Savior. Routinely, we hear that having a school with a culture of honesty, kindness, respect and personal responsibility makes our school a safe and fun place for students to learn. There are a variety of ways that students connect with each other from academic and athletic pursuits to artistic programs such as art, drama and music. There truly is something for everyone at Southeast!

The Staff of Southeast

For more than 35 years the strength of the school has been our solid faculty, with an average tenure of more than 10 years! Besides parents, teachers are often the most influential adults in the life of a child. Southeast is blessed by staff members who not only teach, but act daily in many other capacities to support and guide students. These actions reflect the commitment our entire faculty has to being a positive role model for students; focusing on character development alongside academics. Many of our faculty members hold advanced degrees in a variety of disciplines. K-8 teachers are required to pursue ACSI certification in addition to their Colorado state license.

Safety

There is nothing more important than the safety of students, families and staff. For this reason, the school entrance is secured throughout the day and all visitors must be received at the school office for admittance. Staff and parents alike receive thorough background checks. We live in an ever changing world that presents unique challenges for school and church administrators. Our full time dedicated and highly respected security team routinely prepares for, trains and evaluates existing safety plans and procedures so that we remain prepared and ready to respond to all needs.
