Teaching students to think, learn, and live from a Biblical worldview

Director, GayLynn Heinrich

Welcome to Christian Unified Schools of San Diego!  For over 50 years, in partnership with Shadow Mountain Community Church, Christian Unified Schools of San Diego (CUSSD) has served families and the community by providing K-12th grade education, characterized by a commitment to teaching from a Biblical worldview. 

Why Christian Unified Schools?

  • A life-changing education anchored in the truth and grace of Jesus Christ
  • A meaningful Biblical worldview integrated into all areas of learning
  • A loving and nurturing team of teachers who are dedicated to knowing each child as an individual and helping each student grow to their full potential
  • Many opportunities to engage in enrichment including academics, STEM, arts, athletics, clubs, and service to the community

Our desire is to welcome families who share our vision and students who want to contribute to and be a part of an environment where respect of Christian values and one another is the foundation of a successful Christian school.  Our intent is to cultivate a school that provides a safe environment that is accessible to all with the cultural, ethnic and economic diversities that mirror the world in which we live.

At Christian Unified, students are provided impactful opportunities to grow spiritually through dynamic chapels, engaging Bible classes and Biblical integration in all subjects.  Elementary and Junior High academics provide a strong foundation for future learning.  High School academics offer a wide range of classes including specialized courses, honors, AP level, and Dual Credit college courses to open as many doors as possible as each student seeks God’s plan for their lives.   

We are blessed to offer a unified academic program at our four unique campuses with elementary in four locations, two junior high options, and our 9th-12th grade high school that shares a campus with Shadow Mountain Community Church.

We hope that you will come and tour our school and meet our Administrators to learn more about how your child can be impacted by a Christ-centered education.  You may request more information or schedule a tour or shadow day by emailing or choose the Admissions Dates/Events link for other opportunities.  If you are excited about the possibility of enrolling your child and the Lord is calling you to apply at Christian Unified, please click on this ”Apply Now” link.

We look forward to serving your family and will celebrate together as we see the Lord make a difference in the lives of each student and the families of CUSSD.
