High School

Our goal for all high school students is college readiness. Whether or not students actually plan on attending college, we believe that preparing our students for college will equip them for whatever they will face in their transition after high school. Because we are not required to adhere to all of the state testing requirements, our teachers can focus on authentic classroom instruction, without being fixated on standardized tests alone.

As part of our on-going effort to educate students to be well-rounded citizens, all students are required to take classes in each of our five core content areas: Bible, Language Arts, Science, History, and Mathematics. In addition, all students are also required to take Physical Education,  Advanced Health, Career Management, Employability Skills and Personal Finance courses.

In order to help round out the educational experience of our high school students, the opportunities listed below are offered:

Dual Enrollment / Early College

Dual Enrollment is an opportunity for 11th and 12th grade students to earn college credits while attending SCA. Through Bloomsburg University’s ACE (Advanced College Experience) Program, and our partnerships with Luzerne County Community College (LCCC), Clarks Summit University, Switched Online Learning, and other accredited higher-level learning institutions, we are able to provide various opportunities for students to advance in their academic careers. SCA students have collectively earned over 70 college credits to date.


We offer various electives to help develop student skills in areas that are creative or out of the ordinary. Some of our elective course offerings include: Computer Electives, Creative Living (a home economics-style class), Chorus, Chamber Choir, Yearbook/Journalism, and Art.

Extracurricular Activities

A well-rounded education does not end in the classroom. We strive to provide many additional opportunities outside of the classroom for students to develop skills and grow in community with each other. Some of our extracurricular opportunities include: varsity sports (archery), instrumental lessons (piano, flute), theater/drama opportunities (including a main-stage musical every spring), student government, and a student ministry group, focused on meeting the needs of others in the community by being “the hands and feet of Christ.”
