Spiritual & Academic Training
Nurturing minds, growing godly character
Applications and enrollment for 2022-2023 are underway. Please request information by contacting our office, or sign up for one of our admissions events.
We have experienced unprecedented growth in recent years and are grateful that so many families desire to enroll their children at Christian Unified Schools. As a result, we are full with waiting lists in every elementary class on East and West campus for the 2022/23 school year.
Our leadership is exploring possibilities of new facilities as we continue to grow. We would like to invite families to express interest in a potential elementary school campus near/in Alpine in a beautiful facility, near the Dunbar exit off the 8 freeway. If there is sufficient interest and need, the campus will open in the Fall for the 2022/23 school year. As we consider this option, please click here for more information.
West Campus: 211 3rd St. El Cajon
East Campus: 2100 Greenfield Drive, El Cajon
Christian South: 482 L Street Chula Vista, CA
Junior/Senior High: 2100 Greenfield Drive, El Cajon
Both East and West Campuses are the same elementary school supported by Shadow Mountain Community Church and are located less than two miles apart.
We believe a visit to our campus during the school day is one of the best ways to observe our environment and determine if Christian Unified is the right fit for your family.
We offer tours on various days throughout the summer. If you are excited about the possibility of enrolling your child and the Lord is calling you to apply at Christian Unified, please see below for application instructions.

4. Placement Testing & Student/Parent Interview with Principal
Christian Unified Schools routinely conducts a placement test for incoming students to determine academic readiness, placement in advanced courses and/or to help assess if the student performs lower or higher than their grade level for monitoring future progress. Elementary students will have their placement test and interview at the same time. For junior high and high school, the placement test takes approximately one hour and will be scheduled prior to administrator interview.
5. Welcome Patriots!

The Christian Unified School District was founded in 1965 by Drs. Tim and Beverly LaHaye to provide an educational program for the people of San Diego County that equips and nurtures the whole child—mentally, socially, physically, spiritually and morally.
Recognizing the preeminence of Christ, partnering with parents, Christian Unified Schools of San Diego teaches students to think, learn, and live from a Biblical worldview by integrating God and His Word as the primary source of knowledge and truth.
Led by Pastor David Jeremiah, Christian Unified Schools of San Diego desires that students acquire deep and personal knowledge of Christ and His Word, achieve the highest levels of Christian scholarship and learning, and accomplish the eternal purposes for which God created them.
