Story of Shiloh
Past and Present
Shiloh Christian School opened in 1978 with 47 students, and has now grown to over 400 students in Pre-K through 12th grade. To accommodate the increased enrollment of the school, Shiloh moved into a permanent location on Shiloh Drive in 1996. Shiloh’s permanent home is located on a beautiful 20 acre campus. In 2003, Shiloh expanded its facilities by adding a second building. The new building includes a gymnasium, stage/auditorium and classes for fifth through twelfth-grade students. The smaller-original building is now accommodating students in Pre-Kindergarten through fourth grade.
Why We Chose the Name Shiloh
The term “Shiloh” was the place name of an Old Testament city which was the first established worship center in Israel (Judges 18:31). It was there that an annual pilgrimage of God’s people ended in worship of Israel’s God, Yahweh (Judges 21:19; 1 Sam. 1:3). Samuel, a leader of God’s people, was brought to the house of the Lord at Shiloh that his whole life would be given over to the Lord. There the Lord revealed himself to Samuel through His word so that Samuel would minister before the Anointed One always (1 Sam. 1:28, 2:35). Shiloh Christian School, like its Old Testament counterpart, provides a place where God is revealed through His Word, giving the standard for all instruction.
