SCA's staff are trained and experienced in Differentiated Instruction, allowing them to easily tailor curriculum and lesson plans to meet our student's needs. Whether, challenging high performers or supporting and pulling up struggling learners, our staff have had great success with Differentiated Instruction in their classrooms.
Small classroom sizes and strong curriculum lend themselves to our strong focus on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). Students regularly participate in hands-on activities to explore STEAM in the world around them, as well as in the classroom.
SCA staff are trained in Problem-Based Learning, a method of developing projects with a real-world focus or application and allowing students to explore creative, practical solutions. Recently, our 3rd and 4th grade class created business plans to support a fictional key chain business, following presentations from bankers, marketers, and business people in our local community.
Each grade level has dedicated time for art as part of their weekly curriculum. From projects that compliment that week's learning objectives to those that help students explore our world in more detail, art is integrated into a various aspects of our learning program.

Physical education takes a variety of forms from grade to grade as students are introduced to a range of sports, exercises, and games. Additionally, during daily PE classes, students learn good sportsmanship, how to be a good team member, and healthy self-care and living.
As a Christian school, Bible classes are part of our daily lessons and an essential element of our curriculum.

Twice a year all grades participate in a week-long Week of Prayer and community-based service projects.
