Summit Christian Academy Reviews

This is a great school. We have completed our first year. Next year will be our second year and Senior year. We are looking forward to it! This year with covoid was a pretty seamless transition. Summit Christian Academy has some great teachers. It can be a hard to get them all on the same page sometimes. At times it has been a challenge to get everyone on the same communication rd. And in the same loop. There are a lot of parent meetings to keep you up to date for general school stuff. The sports opportunities are great. Lunch is a bit better than public school. You can qualify for financial aid. If you work for the school you can also get a discount on tuition. The school is located in Lee’s Summit Mo. They are very adamant about helping everyone be successful. They have helped my daughter immensely. The staff is very dedicated to all the students. All the staff here is very loving and Christ centered. Mr.Miller is our favorite teacher!

Our daughter attended SCA for 13 years (started in Kindergarten). We love it! We love the teachers, we love the office staff and the administrators. We just took 5 teachers, including Elem principal and the Dean (who was Isy's principal when she was in Elem) lunches for a thank you end of year thing. We hugged the Dean! It's like a family. It is a smaller school, so more focus on the kids and a Godly environment.
I attend a small, private, Christian school in Lee's Summit, Missouri, called Summit Christian Academy, and overall my experience has been amazing! I have attended SCA since preschool, and I am now a senior. I have experienced many ups and downs, like those which would happen at any school, but SCA cares more about students when that happens. When I have gone through tough things, (grades, or family and friend problems) I have always had an overhwelming amount of support. The teachers are always there to support you, and want you to do your best. The academics are outstanding. Material is taught to students on average two years before the surrounding public schools. I have three siblings who have graduated, and they have all been way more prepared for college than those in their college classmates. In the future, I would definitely enroll my child into Summit Christian Academy, and I believe others should also.
