Evangelical Christian School’s website has a beautiful and approachable user interface. They’ve scattered large imagery throughout their site of smiling children, giving off a feeling of warmth and comfort. Clean fonts and color palette also add to the user’s perception of the school, conveying elegance and prestige.
Saddleback Valley Christian School’s website homepage is clearly speaking to prospective parents and students. Serving as a marketing hub for the school, the website aims to tell a captivating story to would-be families with a goal of getting them on campus. Beautiful, modern design with bright photography and exceptional video assets further sets this site above the rest.
An engaging “Chat with us” button and widescreen images of students with glowing testimonials instantly conveys credibility to Eastern Christian School website visitors. Though the site is mainly speaking to prospective families, they also do a good job catering to current families through their “Parent” links scattered throughout the site.
SFC does an incredible job speaking to prospective parents and students through their website. A single call-to-action strategy drives visitors to “plan a visit” to their campus to see it for themselves. Their site takes a story-based approach with limited usage of copy. Beautiful videography and photography make this a site well above the rest. No wonder they’re one of the highest rated schools in SoCal.
Central Christian uses great imagery throughout their website and is actively updating their blog with fresh content. They’ve kept their copy pretty limited, helping visitors quickly skim through the site to decide if it’s worth taking the next step. We also love how they emphasize the impact their school has had on alumni and the career success they have enjoyed as a result.
In addition to having a great name and emblem, Mount Zion Christian School has a unique User Experience (UX) with their sticky navigation on the homepage after scrolling. They also do a great job of delineating between a “primary call-to-action” and a “transitional call-to-action” at the bottom of every page (i.e. “Start the journey” vs. “Let’s start with a phone call”).
Lincoln Christian School’s website starts off with a set of several beautiful rotating hero images and video combinations. Before the user has to scroll anywhere, they’re captivated by the three main reasons they should choose Lincoln. Their website’s hamburger nav is modern and takes users deeper to additional pages that maintain the same beautiful design.
“A picture is worth a thousand words” is certainly true for this website. The kids in their hero image couldn’t look any happier. Bringing those same sweet kids into the video just a couple panels lower also doesn’t hurt. All in all a very simple, clean site that makes the user feel at home.
Another Christian school website that is not too shy to show off those smiling faces. They’re main call to action is “request info” which helps prospective parents get a resource package of all that they might need to make their important decision. They also do a great job of highlighting key metrics under their “Knights Excel” section. No wonder they made the list.
With five key audiences for their website, Porter Gaud cuts straight to the chase. Their main menu has several “I am…” panels that guides a user into the “bucket” that they fall into and helps give them specific, tailored content. This, coupled with a well thought out page structure, makes for a great User Experience.
