School Notes

  • Suffolk Christian Academy is an excellent school filled with qualified faculty, precious students, and godly families. Our desire is to disciple students to become wholly devoted followers of Jesus Christ. We partner with Christian families to provide biblical education and spiritual development for their children; therefore, the expectation is that all families who seek to enroll their children at SCA are Bible-believing followers of Christ who are actively growing in thier own walk with God.
  • Our standardized test scores demonstrate that our students are receiving an excellent education. SAT scores for our college-bound students are consistently higher than local, state, and national scores. Graduates are attending quality colleges and universities with success. Numerous alumni have made the Dean's list and admission into an academic honor society on campus. God is blessing our students' efforts and has shown them favor in their dreams and endeavors.
