Summit Christian Academy is Kansas City's largest accredited independent Christian school. Our commitment to academic excellence, godly character, and a passion for life equips every student to succeed. SCA represents the face of the Christian community, and our rigorous Christian school curriculum is taught from a biblical worldview. SCA is united around a simple statement of faith and enriched by denominational diversity.

Our mission is to inspire students to achieve their God-given potential through excellent academics and Christian training in a compassionate environment.

Our Christian School Education Programs

Our Christ-centered educational programs teach children from preschool through grade 12. Our preschool, prekindergarten, elementary, junior high, and senior high school programs are all taught by educators who are committed Christians highly qualified in their respective subject areas. Our teachers have chosen to teach in a Christian environment where they exercise the freedom to wrap academic excellence into biblical truth, in order to educate the whole child.

Inspiring Students in the Classroom

Because Summit Christian Academy is an independent, private Christian school, we have smaller class sizes that allow teachers to celebrate every student. We enjoy the opportunity for our faculty to inspire students to discover and develop their God-given gifts and talents on an individual basis. Our commitment to praying for each child by name, and our mentoring approach specifically toward junior high ahd high school students, makes Summit Christian Academy the premeire choice for a Christian learning environment.

Extracurricular Activities

Summit Christian Academy offers a variety of extracurricular activities for children of every level. Our school provides access to academic clubs, sports teams, and leadership-building groups. There is something for every student at SCA.

School Sports Activities

Students in the elementary, junior high, and high school enjoy the opportunity to participate in individual and team sports. Summit Chrisitan Academy is a member of the Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA) and the Crossroads Conference. Our school teams have placed at district and state levels. As our school continues to experience increased enrollment and community support, we continue adding more sports to our junior high and high school programs.

Arts and Activities

The opportunity to watch a child explore and grow in their individual talents is a gift. At Summit Christian Academy, we offer many opportunities for students to hone their artistic talents through fine arts, drama, and music programs. Our band and choir students place at the district and state levels, and enjoy performing for the community. Our drama and visual art students have also received several recognized awards and nominations. 

Missions and Service Opportunities

As we teach our children to follow in Christ's footsteps, missions and service is a key part of our educational programs. Every student from preschool through 12th grade participates in service projects that benefit organizations in our Kansas City community. We strive to develop a compassionate heart and strengthen the faith of our students through active service. Our Bible curriculum also culminates with a senior class mission trip that allows our students to share their faith with others through service.
