Spirit Christian Academy operates as a University Model School (UMS). Elementary includes grades K-6th and meets on campus each Wednesday and Thursday. On home-days, students follow a teacher-generated lesson plan with parents serving as co-teacher; this is a unique partnership that characterizes the UMS. Following the UMS schedule provides parents quality time to invest in the educational process of their children. SCA's robust educational program works toward meeting the needs of each student while utilizing differentiated learning strategies and 21st century educational skills. After spending over two decades perfecting its hybrid model, SCA has a record of academic excellence with a focus on character development. SCA values relationships and places an emphasis on reaching the heart of each student.
Spirit Christian Academy has a highly engaging secondary program that merges the best in 21st century learning with a strong Christian community. The secondary program at SCA follows the University Model School schedule. Classes meet on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. The curriculum offers a full course of study, including Biblical studies, English and literature, foreign language, social studies, science, fine arts, computer science, math, student leadership, and a host of other electives. Many of our courses are a-g approved.
On home-days, students follow a teacher-generated lesson plan with parents serving as co-teacher; this is a unique partnership that characterizes the UMS. The secondary parent role transitions from being a guide for dependent study at the junior high level to a course monitor at the senior high level. We are a college preparatory program with an academic focus that does not ignore the importance of developing character and an attitude of servant leadership. However, if you ask a student at SCA they will tell you this, "SCA is challenging, but I am thankful to be at SCA because the teachers care so much, and the school feels like a family" (student quote from class of 2016).
