Students Serve Community for Over 25 Years
One of the core values at SCA is cultivating community. Each fall the senior class travels to various areas across the United States to serve. Locally students in preschool to 12th grade serve the community at local food banks, homeless shelters, parks, nursing homes and at churches throughout the city.
Summit Christian Academy is Kansas City's largest accredited independent Christian school. Our commitment to academic excellence, godly character, and a passion for life equips every student to succeed. SCA represents the face of the Christian community, and our rigorous curriculum is taught from a biblical worldview. SCA is united around a simple statement of faith and enriched by denominational diversity. Our mission is to inspire students to achieve their God-given potential through excellent academics and Christian training in a compassionate environment.
Summit Christian Academy serves students from preschool through grade 12. The preschool, prekindergarten, elementary, junior high, and senior high programs are all taught by educators who are committed Christians highly qualified in their respective subject areas. Teachers have chosen to teach in a Christian environment where they exercise the freedom to wrap academic excellence in biblical truth, in order to educate the whole child.
Because Summit Christian Academy is an independent, private Christian school, we have class sizes that allow teachers to celebrate every student. Our faculty enjoy the opportunity to inspire students to discover and develop their God-given gifts and talents on an individual basis. Our commitment to praying for each child by name, and our mentoring approach makes Summit Christian Academy the school of choice for Christian families whose priority is excellence.
Summit Christian Academy offers a variety of extracurricular activities for students. Our school provides access to academic clubs, sports teams, and leadership-building groups. There is something for every student at SCA.

The opportunity to watch a child explore and grow in their individual talents is a gift.

Our band and choir students place at the district and state levels, and enjoy performing for the community. Our drama and visual art students have also received several recognized awards and nominations.
As we teach our children to follow in Christ's footsteps, service is a key part of our educational programs. Every student from preschool through 12th grade participates in service projects that benefit organizations in the Kansas City community. We strive to develop a compassionate heart and strengthen the faith of our students through active service. Our Bible curriculum also culminates with a senior class mission trip that allows our students to share their faith with others through service.
