My son attended SCA from Grade 3 - 8. The Bible instruction was excellent and the overall academic outstanding! He left there with a very well-rounded education that fully prepared him for high school. In high school he took mostly honors classes and graduated in the top 6 of a class of 100+. Much of this we credit to his preparation at SCA. We could not be happier.

My son attends Pre K-3 at Shrewsbury Christian Academy, and we have been so blessed by how the teachers love and support him. SCA truly is like a family! The teachers are excited to see the kids each morning, and they make learning to excite and enjoyable for the students. SCA offers students a Christ-centered, family environment where they can explore, learn, and grow.

We are so happy with the education our son is getting at SCA. Small class sizes allow for individualized attention and learning in a Christian faith based environment. It delivers a comprehensive academic education that nurtures and develops the mind and soul. The academics are advanced, and the children are taught music, art, technology. The middle school science lab is amazing with a very hands on approach to learning.

This school is truly a blessing to our family. I feel completely at ease knowing my kids are safe and cared for on a daily basis at SCA.

I highly recommend this educational institution. I wanted my daughter to grow not only mentally but spiritually. It is so uplifting to hear her when she comes home and talks about her bible verses and the lessons she learned that day. Everyone here is wonderful. The staff, the students, the parents. I love that everyone is so involved, as it really should be. I can't say enough about how pleased I have been. I have always believed that providing a strong foundation begins at home. As parents, we strive to make the right choices that will provide a positive influence and motivation to help direct our children in life. The balance this school has with incorporating strong religious beliefs and education is astounding. I feel confident that we made the right choice enrolling our daughter. I encourage everyone to do the same.

The school is truly amazing. With small class sizes students are able to get a more one on one education. This was especially true for math for me as the school I went to after did not teach me anything new till around the middle of the third quarter. To add to this, the staff are caring, loving, selfless and all around Christ like individuals. I will always hold SCA dear to my heart as they have given me friendships that I still cherish and memories I hold dear to. I would give them six stars if possible.

My family really loves Shrewsbury Christian Academy! My daughters have been there since Preschool and they are now in 2nd grade and Kindergarten and we look forward to continuing their education there next year. We love the small class sizes and caring teachers and staff. SCA offers the greatest Christian education and foundation for your child. Nothing can compare to the teachers and the environment your child will be learning in.

We absolutely love this school! The teachers and administrators are wonderful! I`ve met a lot of great new friends in the parents of my children`s schoolmates. There`s a lot of fun activities both during school and after school, plus some amazing field trips. My kids both love the school and the friends they`ve made! I highly recommend taking a tour and registering your child here! 5 stars!

I have been part of the SCA family for over 10 years. I was drawn to the family atmosphere of the school. Small class sizes mean the teachers can get to know and focus on each student individually. The school provides a safe and loving environment, but also strives for academic excellence. The best part of the school is the teaching of biblical truth and the love of Christ through every aspect of the school day. The school has many amazing teachers and programs, but the technology program, led by Mrs. Bogart, is to be noted as well as the Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Collison. My son has grown by leaps and bounds this year because of Mrs. Collison! I would highly recommend this school.

Wonderful school, family environment. The teachers are amazing and really care about the kids. The curriculum is challenging and engaging. Since the class sizes are small the children get many unique opportunities to do things in class that traditional classes are too large to do. Well worth it! Our family has been here over 10 years and currently have 2 daughters enrolled and they love it!! Highly recommend

The teachers at SCA are fabulous; very caring, enthusiastic, and highly motivated to do their very best for the students. Also, their annual silent auction fundraiser (held in November) is the most organized event I've ever attended. (It's also lots of fun!!)

This school has been amazing. The small class sizes and the support from the staff and teachers makes this school unique. My children are getting an outstanding education and whenever I have a question it is answered immediately. This school is run like a family and has given my children the confidence and foundational knowledge to do well in life. It has truly been a blessing to us. Best investment we have made.

Great school. Academics are good, esp. the critical thinking & analysis skills used in the reading program. The school offers music & art in all grades, Spanish begins in grade 3, and extra activities such as Envirothon are available to middle school students. Students are nurtured as they grow intellectually, personally, and spiritually. The school values include respect for others and acceptance of each other as a unique person, created by God. It is also a family-friendly school; parents'' involvement is encouraged.
