Magnifying Christ in a New Generation

There's nothing quite like the Christian Jr/Sr High School Patriot spirit! Whether in sports, the arts, academics, weekly chapels, or the wide variety of special events, there is an atmosphere, comraderie and special bond between students, teachers, staff and families not easily found in public schools. It's all grounded in Christ and a biblical worldview that sets us apart. Go Patriots!

What's it like to be a Patriot?

Weekly Chapel Services

Patriot chapels are unique. We begin each session with worship, but this is not church. We fill each session with information, but our goal is not so much education as it is motivation. Many of our students and their families are facing incredible challenges in their lives, and we want to send a strong message about the power of Jesus Christ to invade any environment and to change any circumstance. 

Each semester we hear from a number of inspiring speakers. Chapel guests have included a finalist on ABC’s The Voice, the first blind active duty officer in military history, a world famous magician, an emergency-room doctor who finds time to feed people in Syria, and an incredibly gifted young woman who works with the stars in Hollywood.

Our chapel guests all have this in common: they have worked very hard to get where they are, and they have determined to live for Jesus Christ no matter what it takes. For our students, chapel is an incredible opportunity to be motivated, inspired, and changed. 

Block Schedule

Every day is different at Christian, as we utilize a block schedule to engage students with content at a deeper level. Mondays we have a traditional 8-bell day, and Tuesday through Fridays are block days with five 75-minute class or chapel periods each.

ASB & Student Events

ASB representatives work together to foster school spirit all year long, from the traditional Patriot Games to Homecoming and the after party, Winter Formal, Junior/Senior Banquet, and dozens of smaller events in between. 

Parent-Teacher Fellowship

The Parent-Teacher Fellowship supports the philosophy, vision, mission, and core values of Christian Jr/Sr High.  It furthers the interests of the school, promotes fellowship among the parents and teachers, and assists the school at social and other functions as needed.  Current parents are invited to join our Facebook group here.


Find our yearly calendar here. Our school year begins in mid-August and ends in mid-May, with the first semester ending before Christmas break.


Students may bring lunch or purchase it. Seventh through tenth graders can order lunch at the Oasis on Upper Campus. Upperclassmen have the privilege of enjoying lunch in the Generations Building Cafe.

Campus Map

Our Main Campus at 2100 Greenfield Drive is home to Shadow Mountain Community Church and Christian Elementary School East, as well as Christian Jr/Sr High School. 


Christian Unified Schools of San Diego desires to create an educational atmosphere that maximizes learning.

Modesty, moderation, neatness, cleanliness, and gender distinction are the overriding principles of the CUSSD uniform policy. Students are required to abide by the uniform policy at all times.

The students dress should reflect pride in their school and respect for themselves. Enforcement of the uniform policy, like all other discipline matters, is based on cooperation among students, parents and the school. The school, however, is the final authority on the uniform policy and other discipline issues. If, in the opinion of the school, a student’s dress is inappropriate, a parent may be called and required to bring a new, acceptable uniform to the school.

Purchasing Your Uniforms

The sole provider of uniform clothing for Christian Unified Schools is Whitney Promotions. Concierge-style mobile stores will be available campus-wide.

Spirit Wear

Spirit wear is also provided through Whitney Promotions. Find everything from hoodies to caps and stadium chairs here:

Family Statement of Faith

  • The Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs.  The Bible itself, as the inspired, inerrant, plenary, and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe.  For purposes of CUSSD’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, Shadow Mountain Community Church is CUSSD’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
  • We believe that there is one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, and His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through the shedding of His blood, in His bodily resurrection on the third day, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and In His personal pre-millennial return to rapture His Church before the Tribulation and His glorious appearing to set up His Millennial Kingdom.   
  • We believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith, apart from works by the merit of the shed blood of Christ, and that the born-again believer is eternally secure in Christ.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in the individual priesthood of the believer.
  • We believe life begins at conception.
  • We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning; the uniting of one biological man and one biological woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. (Gen. 2:18-25.)  We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a biological man and a biological woman who are married to each other. (1 Cor. 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb. 13:4.)  We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.
  • We believe that the Scripture dictates standards of sexual behavior. The unique roles of the male and female are clearly defined in Scripture. Any promiscuity, homosexuality, gender identity issues or other deviations from Biblical principles is a sin that is offensive to God (Matt. 5:18-19; I Cor. 6: 9-10, 19-20; Eph. 5:3-5; 1 Thess. 4:3-8).
