SCA uses tools from ABeka, Houghton-Mifflin Harcourt, Go Math, and Glencoe to deliver Common Core State Standards standards based content. Each year all K-8 students are assessed using the Terra Nova Exams.


Extensive enrichment opportunities are offered across the four (4) departments that make up SHABACH!  Christian Academy.  Recognizing that the wider the range of the experience that a child has, the greater is the capacity of the young learner to acquire new content. In addition to an emphasis on the Arts and STEM Aviation, our enrichment program has included: Dance, Drama, Golf, Tennis, HW Club, Beginning Band, Keyboarding, Gymnastics, and Robotics. Our Enrichment Club catalog is updated each year.


All classroom teachers must hold a minimum of bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution of higher learning.  All classroom teachers must possess certification from a state, within the United States, or the District of Columbia, or the equivalent from a foreign country.  Any teacher hired without certification must complete all certification requirements within three years of hire date.
