Shalom Christian Academy's mission statement is 'to prepare each student for a life of consequence in the world for the kingdom of God.'
In addition to the part time preschool programs offered through Growing Tree Preschool at local churches, Shalom Christian Academy offers all day Pre-K at the Shalom Christian Academy Campus. This is a 5 day a week program.
Shalom offers 10 courses in which students may earn full college credit, including: Understanding the Times (3 credits), Psychology (3 credits), Pre-Calculus (4 credits), Calculus I (4 credits), Physics (4 credits), Life Calling (3 credits), American Literature (3 credits), British Literature (3 credits), American History II (3 credits), Chemistry (5 credits). Each of these courses are being credited through various colleges and universities that have worked with SCA in developing this unique opportunity.
Our goal is to support and prepare our middle school students during this transitional time in their lives. Academic credibility is achieved through small classes and directed curriculum. This allows for increased contact with teaching staff who model our living curriculum.
Shalom Christian Academy recognizes that school life includes more than classroom instruction. We seek to provide opportunities for students to interact and build relationships with faculty and other students. Traditions such as the annual fifth grade faculty-student kickball game, spirit weeks and mini courses enhance our community and reinforce our mission.
