Summit Christian Academy is empowering students for God-given potential

Since 1989, Summit Christian Academy has empowered students to achieve their God given potential through excellent academics and spiritual training in a compassionate environment. Over the past 33 years, SCA has grown from 32 to 1200 students, and is ranked as one of the top private schools in the Kansas City area. Situated on a 36-acre campus, SCA provides excellent academics, performing arts, speech and debate, athletics, as well as leadership organizations and clubs. In 2020, SCA expanded the campus with the addition of 10 secondary state-of-the-art classrooms and in 2023 will open a new fieldhouse and activity center.

In academics, arts, and athletics, SCA upholds a standard of excellence that encourages students to achieve their individual best. SCA students consistently score above the national average on the Stanford 10 administered to K-11 students annually and has an average ACT score of 24 with 98% of graduates going on to higher education.

The remaining core values of SCA are igniting leadership, cultivating community, encouraging spiritual growth, pursuing grace and truth, and Christ-centered. With an intentional design to the SCA curriculum, each of these core values is interwoven into the fabric and DNA of SCA. Each of these areas of study are chosen to enhance students’ creativity, logical study skills, and critical thinking consistent with the Word of God. The instructional program is supplemented by thoroughly developed, documented, and well-executed curriculum maps that tie biblical principles into all areas of the instructional program.

The SCA environment allows teachers the opportunity to provide individual attention students need to succeed. This special mentoring approach combined with a strong core program in phonics, reading, geography, language, spelling, mathematics, history, Spanish, Bible, and science makes SCA the school of choice for Christian families whose priority is excellence.

The college-preparatory curriculum challenges students and provides an opportunity to earn up to 83 hours of dual credit courses.
