Senior High (9-12)

SCA provides such a special educational opportunity and atmosphere for our students! We provide an education for students that recognizes and honors the fact that God is at the center of all knowledge! This central focus then allows students to make sense of their learning from a Christ-centered view and grow from there. In today’s society and the attacks that are being thrown at our children from the world, knowing that there is a place that still values a strong academic school while honoring God in all we do is refreshing and uplifting!

At SCA, we strive to be the best that God has created us to be. This includes our spiritual lives, academic lives, and extracurricular activities. We desire to honor God through all we do and we are able to accomplish this through partnering with our parents and community.

We desire to not just be another schooling option for families. We desire to significantly impact the lives of students for Christ in everything they do so they can go and impact the lives of all who come in contact with them!
