Thank you for your interest in Spartanburg Christian Academy! Kingdom Education, the philosophy at Spartanburg Christian Academy, focuses on bringing the home, church, and school into a partnership for the purpose of training the next generation. Kingdom Education is defined as the life-long, Bible-based, Christ-centered process of leading a child into a new identity with Christ, developing a child according to his/her specific abilities given to him/her by Christ, so that a child would be empowered to live a life characterized by love, trust, and obedience to Christ. Christian education involves the whole person, therefore it is desirable that all elements which bear on the education of a child be consistent and properly reinforce one another. SCA will assist Christian parents in the education of their children. The school does not replace the training of either the home or the church. All three should be complimentary, which means that all three should be in biblical agreement for a truly well-rounded education centered on Christ. It is therefore necessary that all parents agree with the philosophy and teaching of the school.
