More Than 50 Years

Pursuing Academic Excellence with Christ-Like Character

Established in 1964

When the school needed more space, the abandoned and vandalized Summerville High School campus was purchased in 1969 for $10,000 and still serves today as our campus. The high school was added in 1976 and a college prep curriculum was developed. over the past twenty years, the campus has been expanded several times to add playgrounds, parking lots, and a shop building. The elementary complex was added in the early 1980's.

Love and Trust

Parents have trusted their children to Mother Lode Christian School since 1964 when Rex Heath, the pastor of Standard Community Church, realized his longtime vision to found a Christian school in Tuolumne County. The "Little Red School House" in Soulsbyville was purchased for $7,555.00 and Mother Lode Christian began is first year with 33 students and four teachers.

Passion in Christ

Mother Lode Christian School was established as an independent, non-denominational school governed by elected Board of Directors representing different churches in the community. Additional information can be found in the Mother Lode Christian School By-Laws located in the front office.
