Summit Christian Academy Reviews

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.

This is an amazing school! From their intentional design of the Biblically integrated curriculum to the rigorous academics, to the teachers that have love and compassion for our children. We couldn't have asked for a stronger school to have our children in! So very thankful that they have a place where the teachers love and care for them and most importantly pray for them every.single.day. They also are working to be more diverse in their hiring and students body.
SCA is a great school with teachers who genuinely care about their students. The atmosphere during my time there was very academically driven, and the students are supportive of their sports teams. My class was very intentional about our spiritual growth, and our senior mission trip sparked that! The biggest struggle I had at SCA was that I took many college courses, and the homework load was extremely vigorous—especially since I was involved in clubs and sports.
