We are members at Harvey Baptist Church where my husband is also on staff. We love working with students there as well as leading and participating in worship. I was saved at 16 at First Baptist Church of Venus, Texas in my hometown. I grew up there and graduated from Venus High School.
I have had the privilege of teaching students in Howe, Whitewright, and in Stephenville at Hook Elementary and Stephenville High School. I am so blessed to be here at SCS now! I love my students so much and I pray that God would use me here for His glory. My favorite verse is Jeremiah 29:11!
Hi, my name is Mrs. Chelsea Carpenter. I graduated from Tarleton State University in May 2011. I have been married to Brent Carpenter since March of 2008. My husband and I have been members of Harvey Baptist Church since the summer of 2007. I was saved by the grace of God at the age of six and was raised in a devoted Christian home. As a result of my Christian upbringing, my parents enrolled my brother and I into a Christian private school. I attended Grace Preparatory Academy in Arlington, TX for nine years until my graduation in 2005. This experience in a Christian school has provided me with the opportunity to have a Godly education surrounded by fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. I have learned through the development of my relationship with God that every morning I wake up it is a choice to “…deny himself, and take up His cross daily and follow Me” as said in Luke 9:23. I pray that the Lord will use me in a mighty way to direct children to be the salt and the light of the earth.

Greetings in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ! My name is Mr. Greg Judy and I’m excited to begin my first year at SCS. I’m a 1974 graduate of Miami Christian College (FL) with a degree in Elementary Education and Bible. I have 18 years of experience in Christian Education (15 years as a teacher and 3 years as a school administrator). I’m also an ordained minister having pastored six churches. My wife, Virginia, and I are blessed with five adult children and seven grandchildren. I graduated from a wonderful Christian high school, have ministered in five Christian schools, and all five of our children received a Christian education, so I am a firm believer in the value and importance of Christian education. What a difference it’s made in my life! What a difference it will make in the lives of your children!!
