Posted November 3, 2005

I graduated from SSCA in June of 2004. The staff at SSCA focused on giving students a solid eduation, and also prepared them for college and living like Christ in an ungodly world. I was impressed that my teachers cared not only about my grades, but they were concerned for my own well being. Several of my teachers started class everyday with prayer, thanking God we arrived safely, and asking for guidance as we learned new things. I always felt SSCA was an extention of my home, because I felt so comfortable there. I would recommend this school to any parent or student who wants a good education, and lessons that can be applied outside of the classroom.

I am a Senior at South Shore Christian Academy. It is amazing how much students and teachers interact at SSCA. It is sometimes hard for me to see my teachers as teachers and not friends. I spend a lot of time with them inside and out of school. The teachers take a real interest in the students. Last year a few of the teachers with some friends and I went to see a Red Sox vs. Yankees game in New York. This had no educational purpose but it allowed us to interact outside of school. I cannot express how much I look up to and respect the male teachers at my school. They are my role models and I have discussed problems in my life with them. They care about me and I considered them second dads. The spiritual leadership of the teachers has always amazed me.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
