SCA is an excellent Christ filled learning environment for children K through 8. My two children grew up in this school and every year, I was impressed with every teacher. The curriculum was challenging and ver engaging. In Jr high grade both children received high honors. Both are in college now and are performing at honor status. They've both shown excellent leadership and organizational skills I believe their foundation at SCA is what prepared them for high school as well as college. The teachers and staff are Spirit filled leaders and very professional. I'm thankful for this school and recommend it highly to every parent searching for excellence.

This school helped me raise my children to be strong leaders. Each one of my children had different needs and strengths. Each one was addressed individually, helping them achieve great academics. The teachers were loving and caring, taking personal interest in my kids' lives well after they had graduated. I would HIGHLY recommend this school to give a true Christian upbringing - filled with love, truth, encouragement, discipline and prayer.

This school lacks in so many areas. The teachers are unprofessional and unkind to the students. The academics are crushing and take up most of your time after school. Also, the leadership in this school lacks immensely. I do not recommend this school if your are looking for a kind, Christian based environment.

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.
