At Summit Christian Academy, we believe that every child is created by God for a purpose. Our desire is to partner with you to inspire your children to reach their God-given potential. We understand that you are entrusting us with your most precious gift, and we do not take that lightly.
The school day for our Early Education students is filled with opportunities for our littlest eagles to learn and grow through hands-on activities, learning stations, interaction with SCA faculty and staff, Bible stories, library time, singing, Physical Education, and play. Our goal is for our Early Education students to grow socially, emotionally, physically and academically, to meet their God-given potential, all while developing a life-long love of learning.

Talk about school with enthusiasm. Share some of your “first day” experiences and build excitement by letting them join in the preparation of packing their school supplies or picking out a new outfit. Read The Little Engine That Could and encourage your child to say, “I think I can!” Above all, pray with your child and ask God to bless them and go before them as they move into this new phase of childhood. Attend as many Early Education back-to-school activities as possible like Popsicles on the Playground and Open House.
The Summit Christian Academy Early Education program does not offer sports. We do have activities for the Early Education students. They participate in spring and fall programs where they have an opportunity to perform for family and friends. Early Education students will experience field trips to the Kansas City Zoo and/or Deanna Rose Farmstead as well as the Pumpkin Patch.
Our ultimate goal is to help Early Education students discover the world that God has made and learn about His plans for their life as they develop to their full potential. We want to provide as many opportunities for children to practice fine motor skills and the social skills necessary to succeed at school in a Christian environment.
