Our School Spirit Lasts An Eternity

SCA Teachers Educate in Innovative Ways via SCA eCampus

(Lee’s Summit, MO) – As Summit Christian Academy (SCA) continues their eCampus platform, teachers and faculty in the Early Education – 12th grade are finding new and fun ways to continue instructing their students. “School is truly an anchor for the soul,” said Summit Christian Academy Academic Dean Dr. Kimberlee Gill.  “As our students engage with their teachers, their textbooks, and friends, they have been able to experience more of a calm in the middle of the world’s storm.”

Early Education students are busy learning via singing, dancing, reading, and art. Teachers are mailing letters to their students, and everyone is enjoying virtual show and tell. They are looking forward to new videos of community leaders reading to them. 

Elementary students have enjoyed their full core curriculum through virtual teaching, along with “pet parades”; devotion times; and lunch dates on Google Hangouts. Special classes have stayed exciting with elementary physical education hosting virtual obstacle course challenges, music continued teaching of recorders, rhythm and movement, and art providing at-home projects to encourage students to stay even more hands-on in the eLearning environment. Classes are even gathering together virtually just to play games and to hear one anothers’ laughs.

Through the use of Canvas, the learning platform of many colleges, 7th through 12th grade students are balancing time management.  Seventh grade students were recently able to participate in the school’s annual visit to the Omaha Zoo….virtually as the class did a Zoom virtual tour of the zoo, utilizing Google Earth.  Science students had the opportunity to not only watch their teacher dissect a frog, but also to pick up their own kit and dissect at home, being Google Hangout led by their teacher! Secondary Choirs are still singing together, and even Student Council is having Zoom meetings and elections for the 20-21 school year.

With SCA eCampus in full force, the school has worked hard to engage families and the community through the SCA Youtube channel. The channel features devotions for parents, Chapel time with chapel speakers, conversations with SCA counselors as well as exercise programs and opportunities for students to stay active with SCA athletes.
