Door Systems Inc., a locally owned and family operated door and window company in Lee’s Summit, believes in the mission and values put forth by Summit Christian Academy (SCA) and commits to furthering the education of pre-school to high school level children in the Kansas City area. By donating $5000 to Phase 1 of the Legacy of Faith campaign, Door Systems is helping SCA to educate more students and build a larger facility.

Named a Top Five Private School in the Kansas City area by the Kansas City Business Journal, Summit Christian Academy has seen their secondary school enrollment double in the last five years. The Legacy of Faith campaign’s goal is to add ten new classrooms, music rooms, a gym and athletic facility enhancements over the next ten years in order to reach more students and better serve their current student body of 800 students. The 58,000 square foot building addition will allow SCA to reach more students in the Lee’s Summit area and continue to uphold the standards of excellence in education, the arts and athletics.

Parents and teachers speak highly of the quality curriculum at Summit Christian Academy. “Our family is so thankful for Summit Christian Academy. It has been a major part of our lives for over 10 years,” says Stacy Crabtree, mother of two SCA students. “My daughter graduated from SCA in 2007 with 18 actual college credit hours she was able to take with her to Baylor University. She was prepared for the hard work expected there and did very well. My son has attended since Kindergarten and this is his home. He has been involved in the soccer program for years, but more recently has jumped in to the music program full force. SCA has so much to offer each student and with the level of instruction our students are receiving I’s at state competitions in academics, music, and art and our sports teams are also making a name for our school.”

Door Systems is passionate about providing the students of Lee’s Summit with an opportunity to receive top-notch education in a positive environment. The students at Summit Christian Academy consistently rank well above the national average on both the SAT and ACT and have access to 70 hours of dual-credit college curriculum. The addition of ten new classrooms will generate more opportunities for quality learning in a positive environment.
