Since opening its doors in 1983, Stoneybrooke Christian School has held two equally important, greatly valued priorities. One is the spiritual development of children through consistent and systematic teaching of God's Word and the other is academic growth of students through high quality, solid classroom instruction. Staff members at Stoneybrooke are fully prepared to achieve the school's Two #1 Priorities as they honor Christ, serve families and love students with their God-given gifts and talents.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Deuteronomy 6:4, Mark 12:29, Matthew 28:19, II Corinthians 13:14

We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory. Matthew 1:2021, John 10:3038, Matt. 26:28, Hebrews 9:14, I Peter 3:22, Phil. 2:9, Revelation 19:1112

In 1982, God laid it upon the hearts of Miss Worel and a friend to start a new Christian school in South Orange County. During the spring of 1983 they pulled up roots and moved to the area to begin that work. With no students, equipment, teachers, or even curriculum that was going to be a daunting task. Office space was secured and the work began. While Miss Worel designed flyers, talked to perspective parents, and interviewed teachers, Mr. Bock was busy cutting drywall, pounding nails, and painting walls alongside the contractor.

By September, the doors were open and 38 precious students came walking through the doors for the first day of school. It was a humble beginning with three classrooms, a computer lab, two telephones and no secretary.

The school doubled the number of students and quickly outgrew the rented facilities on La Paz Road in Laguna Niguel. Within three years an additional location was secured and classes were held in a modular unit on Coast Bible Church property in San Juan Capistrano. By the end of the fourth year an agreement was made with Coast Bible Church and modular units were brought on to the five acre campus. The school had found a home.

For 13 years the student body continued to grow and the school expanded at a rapid rate. Eventually, a permanent structure became a necessity. Funds were raised and the main building was built. In the spring of 1995 parents, students, staff, and friends formed long lines carrying every single item from the portables to the permanent facility. Within two years a new two story, six classroom building was built to accommodate the junior high.

With continued growth and opportunity for expansion becoming a reality, the school secured 5.2 acres in the new community of Ladera Ranch to build a coveted second campus. In October of 2003, the junior high moved to the new campus and a brand new elementary school was started on that site.

Stoneybrooke opened a preschool at the San Juan campus location in the fall of 2011 as well as adding a homeschool program in the fall of 2015.

The Stoneybrooke Ladera Ranch campus was sold in the summer of 2015. Students and staff moved to the San Juan campus which now hosts all of Stoneybrooke Christian School - preschool, elementary and junior high.
