Suncoast Christian Academy offers a well-rounded curriculum which empowers all children to reach their potential. Learning occurs as a result of hands-on involvement with experiences in and out of the classroom. Children’s learning reflects a recurring cycle that begins with awareness and discovery, moves to exploration, to inquiry, and finally to utilization.
We provide our students with academic challenges just beyond the level of present mastery, providing opportunities to learn and practice newly acquired skills while recognizing individual variations. We recognize various learning styles by incorporating foundational, hands-on experiences in language arts, science, math, art, music and movement, all balanced with Christ-centered educational objectives.
In addition, we value and incorporate the infinite number of ideas each experienced teacher brings to the classroom. SCA’s teaching staff understand that children need consistent motivation and empowerment. Students learn best when they are highly interested in the subject matter. We utilize a thematic approach that is fluid and flexible, and values the interests of our children. By incorporating Thinking Maps into our school-age coursework–consistent visual patterns linked directly to eight specific thought processes–SCA’s students are encouraged to collaborate, plan and create in a truly unique learning environment.
To expand the learning opportunities of our students, parental involvement is strongly encouraged. We believe that parents are a child’s first teacher.
Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. (Deut. 6: 5-7) -NIV
In addition to our exemplary course offerings, effective leadership amongst our trained and dedicated staff, coupled with meaningful relationships developed with our educational partners in the surrounding community, Suncoast Christian Academy is glorifying God and SOARING TO NEW HEIGHTS.
