The 2023-24 school year at Summit Christian Academy (SCA) began on August 16 with enrollment of over 1230 preschool-12th grade students. The school has expanded to four sections of most elementary and secondary classes.

SCA Early Education student Olivia Webb arrives for her first day of school as one of over 25 second-generation Eagles. Olivia’s dad, Matt, graduated from SCA in 2009 and is a part of a growing number of Alumni who are returning to SCA as a parent.

Over the summer, the school completed an “Elementary Eagle Refresh” which included all new flooring and painting, hardwood floors installed in the Elementary gymnasium, and turf and new play structure to be installed in the Elementary playground. This school year, SCA has also expanded campus through a long-term lease with Neighboring Church Lee’s Summit Community Church (LSCC), which includes eight additional classrooms in their lower level, specifically and solely reserved for SCA learning and ministry.

“What an incredible start to our school year,” shared SCA Head of School Chris Hahn. “We have record enrollment, improved facilities in our elementary school, and we have expanded facilities as we step into a partnership with LSCC to better serve our kids and families. We’ve expanded our faculty to best serve your children, and I believe we have a great team to encourage them as they grow in head-knowledge and nurture them as they grow in heart knowledge of a relationship with Jesus Christ.”
