School Reviews

5  
Our daughter graduated 3 years ago from Spartanburg Christian Academy and has been very successful in her university. She was accepted to all the colleges that she applied and received top scholarships. While we are so thankful for the rigorous education she received at SCA, we are most thankful for the relationships she had/has with her teachers and fellow students. She was mentored by older students and in turn mentored younger students while she was in high school.
