Our School Spirit Lasts An Eternity

Summit Christian Academy

Summit Christian Academy (SCA) is an independent, nondenominational Christian school serving nearly 1200 preschool-12th grade students from over 185 area churches with a college preparatory Christian education. Summit Christian Academy is fully accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International and Cognia and provides a college-preparatory program, along with a full range of extracurricular activities. The staff and faculty at Summit Christian Academy strive to inspire students to discover and achieve their God-given potential.

Faculty and Staff

Our faculty and staff are committed Christians and the heart of our school. They are certified educators and many hold advanced degrees. Summit Christian Academy teachers have chosen to teach in a Christian environment where they exercise the freedom to wrap academic excellence in biblical truth. This freedom enables them to educate the whole child. The intentional design of the SCA curriculum and experiential learning approach allows teachers to celebrate every student, recognizing each for their unique gifts and talents. 

School Structure

SCA is a not-for-profit corporation with a Board of Education that directs the operation of the school through an Administrator. The Board of Education is composed of seven persons. Five are elected by the parents for three-year terms and two are pastors appointed by the parent-members of the Board for two-year terms.

Accreditation and Professional Affiliations

SCA is accredited by Cognia and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). SCA is a member of the National Institute for Learning Disabilities (NILD). The NILD educational therapy program is designed to give students the tools they need to become successful, independent learners within the regular classroom. All Administrators at SCA are members of the International Association of Christian School Administrators.

Covenant Churches

Many Kansas City churches have entered into a “covenant” relationship with us. The covenant churches agree with our Statement of Faith and pray for and promote SCA among their congregations. Students enrolling from a covenant church are extended the opportunity of early enrollment and a discount on the enrollment fee.
