My child has been attending this school for 8 years. The teachers are caring, dedicated, and professional. The students are just that... students. They are taught to be respectful, honor their faith, and work hard to achieve excellence. You will be pleased with the level of communication provided in order for you to stay involved in what is happening in the classroom. We changed schools briefly a few years back, to a local charter school. A required uniform does not a school make; and we quickly reenrolled at SCA. We remain happy with the education our child is receiving. Please tour the school and meet the staff to see what wonderful opportunities await your child.
My children have experienced SCA for several years and have been consistently challenged academically and provided multiple opportunities. The iPad integreation into the classroom is wonderful and many unique programs in all areas of the school are OUTSTANDING. Check it out! You will be thrilled with what they offer.
This school is horrible. It is cliquish and very few are true Christians that go and work there. The students run the school and you feel out of place if you aren't rich and white! DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN THERE!!
I am a student at SCA and it is a great school! This school has helped me grow a lot in my walk with God and I know if I ever need any help spiritually or academically I can go to a teacher here and they will willingly help me. Never listen to anyone if they say its not a AWESOME school... Because NO DOUBT ABOUT IT... It's the best school I've EVER been to. They help me with anything I need and I couldn't be more thankful/blessed to have a great education at this school. The education here is so great and tbh (to be honest) Bible is my favorite class here and Mr. Nathan Lewis is my favorite teacher. (He's the Bible teacher) He explains Gods word so well and if I ever have a question he is usually the first person I go to if I have a Biblical question. Thanks to all my awesome teachers who have helped me grow spiritually and academically.
SCA is a great school that teaches and encourages children to excel academically and spiritually. I feel that my child is getting the best possible education and will never regret choosing a Christian school over our public school system.
This school is absuletly horrible there is so much bullying it is unbelievable. What ever you do..DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE.
Absolutely wonderful, going into our 7th year there, will never look at another school again, especially the public school system.
THIS SCHOOL IS TERRIBLE!!! BULLYING IS VERY HIGH AND I HERE ABOUT FIGHTS FREQUENTLY! TEACHERS THROW TANTRUMS AND CURSE!!! THE STUDENTS CURSE SO MUCH AND BULLY EVERYONE!!! DONT SEND YOUR KID HERE! WHATEVER YOU DO DONT DO IT!!
I have two children that attend SCA. The school is academically superior to public schools. They also have a great fine arts and sports program. Some teachers are better than others as in all schools. Discipline issues are minimum. Tuition average but extra fees do add up quickly, especially if student in band. SCA seems to be investing money to improve school by adding gardens, replacing old buildings, etc. Great Christian environment with Bible taught daily.
SCA offers an excellent athletic program, fine arts program and curriculum. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, and very family oriented. Communication with the faculty and administration is awesome. Disciplinary issues are dealt with immediately and a student will be asked to leave for inappropriate conduct, which may explain the previous negative comments. SCA is progressive and growing precipitately, especially the high school. The guidance counselor is very easy to reach and has been a valuable asset in preparing for college. We looked at several top notch private high schools in Tampa and choose SCA, and we are so pleased. SCA offers honors and AP classes as well as a variety of elective options. My daughter is a sophmore and loves it!
Not at all what we expected! We thought we had done our homework, but were sadly mistaken. Please be careful!
I have been going to this school since I can't remember. And let me say it is a true blessing. I've made so many friends. Its like a second home. The teachers are understanding and kind. They have excellent academic programs and the princibal is very understanding and will help you out with any situation ur facing in life. This school is blessed by God. You not only get an education but receive life lessons of all sorts. There are so many sports to choose from. I will miss this school when I have to leave. I know almost everyone there and they are the kindest of ppl. I love this school. And JESUS!
Its all about money money money, christian wise nope, you can't complain either. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD THERE!!!!!!
I have been a student now for three years in the highschool. I can't say that the school is perfect because nothing is in this world. The majority of teachers are great using humor and keeping interest. The students are above average, but like any other school there are cliches and students who are not interested, but i feel like i can really be free to express my religion here. We have all different denominations and no one really cares which one you are. You're loved equally wherever you go and we have chapels with alter calls that many students are touched by the message and feel free to go and worship. The administration is good, but not perfect. I have had problems with their absence policy that has caused me to fail a few classes and met an unwillingness to change or help me because it causes inconveniences. The sports are wonderful and coming from a public school, SCA has really helped me turn my life around. I can feel God in this school. I love it.
The whole school seems to have an idea that they are better and superior to people who are not members of their school. The staff and administration showed no compassion, whatsoever, and whatever "Christian example" and principles they were trying to display was nowhere to be found. Leaving this school made my child actually happy to be back in public school again.
We switched to SCA from a local Catholic School and could not be happier. All is going well. Teachers are easy to get in touch with and their response time is great. Principals know the students names and are excellent to work with. They are accepting of minority races unlike what a reviewer stated. Amazing that this is mentioned anyway. I guess everyone is looking for excuses these days. Leave our race card in the deck. The school is great. Must be why their attendance is booming. Check it out!!!
The staff and teachers are simply the best. Many improvements are being made to the school grounds to increase security and safety for the students and staff/teachers. They really keep the parents informed in the progress of the student. Communication with our daughter's teacher is simply an email or phone call away. Our daughter loves SCA and after the first year,SCA already feels like an extended family.
Seffner was the biggest blessing and I went there at just the right time! I left Grace Christian School to go to Seffner and it was the best decision I could have ever made! I loved it!!!! The faculty and students were so helpful, accepting, and supportive! I had so many great opportunities- drama, choir, NHS- that Grace never gave to me for reasons I still do not understand. They did not play favorites ag Seffner which is all I ever experienced at Grace. Even the students at Grace were cruel, as was the faculty (specifically one of the administrators). Chapel at Seffner was also amazing, and there are opportunities to be involved in chapel, which I never had the opportunity to do at Grace. There was often an altar call in chapel and many students are touched and their lives changed. I also like that Seffner doesn't bring up their point of view when it comes to different doctrines which was always an issue at Grace and caused many arguments. The math teacher at Seffner was amazing!!! I got an A+ in pre-calculus algebra at USF thanks to her class! Seffner was such a great experience.I look back at my time there and smile! I was miserable at grace, but at Seffner that all changed!!!
I can not say that my childs year there was great. Some of the teachers and faculty play favorites with parents who have more money to bring in to the school. I would like to see more of God's way moved into this school. I believe that to many teachers are married to the same family and it makes it unfair and difficult for people to discuss and needed changes.
My daughter and son attended this school and the experience was not good. teachers and staffs were very rude and they constantly looking for faults to complain about. Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not but they have no compassion and love. they are quick to judge and give judgement. What type of christian does that. They hardly accepted minority race to the school. I make sure I 've done my homework on that. I do not recommend that this school is in the best interest of your children
