A Vision for Moore County

Sandhills Classical Christian School was founded in 1999 by three visionary leaders: Max Stanton, Jamie Bransford, and Dr. George James.

None of them had a school-aged child. All of them had a conviction that the area needed a quality Christian school. They researched educational models and selected the classical method for its focus on teaching children not just the facts but also how to think.

The founders launched Sandhills Classical with five kindergarteners at a local church. Today the school has a thriving student body of more than 380 children in its preschool, grammar, logic, and rhetoric programs. It operates at four locations throughout the Sandhills, with its main learning center in Southern Pines, North Carolina.
