Under SBC, SCA exists to give all glory to God by worshiping Him in spirit and truth. SCA seeks to bring students to saving faith in Christ and to disciple believers to Christ-like maturity, equip them to reach out to all people in love, and proclaim His salvation both near and far.

- SCA enrolls students from Pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade with the purpose of helping students realize their full potential by promoting high academic standards. We believe the most effective education takes place in an atmosphere where God is honored, His word taught, and all academic subjects and activities are integrated with a Biblical worldview.

Profile last updated:
SCA has been blessed to see the Lord's hand at work in all aspects of the school. The Lord is honored and glorified.Spiritual training is just as important as a strong academic program. We have a lovely facility that we are planning to add to in a couple of years.The majority of our graduates go on to higher education.We are thankful to have a music program at all levels, drama, sports , and students participate in the various ACSI competitions. Our middle school and high school students have participated, and won, the state Envirothon 7 out of the last 10 years. Soccer and basketball are our primary sports with some track particitation in the spring. We have a dinner theatre for 3 evenings every April. All of these things require parent involvement and we have some very dedicated parents. We finished the STAR program, through ACSI, recently and continue to look to the Lord for ways to improve our school. One of the things we are very excited about is our new learning lab. We affectionately call it ALL because our desire is to meet ALL of the needs of ALL of our students All of the time. The Lab allows for various learning styles, remediation, challenging our gifted students, AP classes, and dual credit courses.
