Classroom learning is our priority. It is where our students gain academically. We have added a Student Life program that also gives our students opportunities to round out their growth and development by giving them chances to explore their talents and gifts outside the typical classroom.
Summit Christian Academy does not limit the learning environment to the classroom. Please see the Curriculum Map for each grade that includes many of the field trips taken to enhance the education.
Clubs and Ministry Purpose
After school activities provide opportunities for character building outside the traditional classroom setting. Biblical perspectives and appropriate responses may be taught to students through the challenges, encounters, and situations found in various settings. Extra-curricular activities teach diligence, dependability, patience, and other Christ-like qualities.
