Media Fact Sheet
Summit Christian Academy (SCA) was founded in 1989 and offers classes from preschool through 12th grade.
Our Mission and Philosophy
The mission of SCA is to “inspire students to achieve their God-given potential through excellent academics and Christian training in a compassionate environment.” We recognize that all truth is from God and teach from a biblical worldview. We partner with parents to prepare students spiritually, morally, socially, and academically, so they will grow in grace and the knowledge of God and affect their world for Christ.

SCA is dually accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and North Central Association (NCA). SCA has the largest enrollment among accredited Christian schools in the Kansas City area.
