About Us


We are SCA

Sherwood Christian Academy was founded in 1985 as a ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church to assist Christian parents in the training of their children. We began with 11 faculty members and 256 students in grades K-8. Today, SCA is a growing, vibrant Christian school serving more than 400 students in grades K3-12 boasting more than 975 alumni. Our students represent over 85 churches from across the greater Albany area. Our size allows every student to be known by name by teachers and peers alike; yet, we offer a comprehensive, college prep, Bible-based educational program that is second to none in Albany! At SCA, we truly have it all!

We Excel We Believe We Compete We Perform
We Excel

We are a college preparatory school accredited by both the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). We challenge our students to achieve their full potential through excellent classroom instruction and rigorous academic standards. Qualified high school students take dual enrollment courses to be prepared for the next level. Our graduates get accepted into some of the best colleges in Georgia and the Southeast.

Our graduates excel at the college of their choice and finish with distinction as they enter their chosen field.

We Believe

We encourage our students to put 'hands and feet' to their faith and be sold out Christ-followers.

At SCA, we purpose to bring all students to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, then build them up in Christ through instruction that is fully integrated with Biblical truth, weekly chapel messages, community service opportunities, and mission trips eventually to launch them out as graduates to serve Christ with their very lives. 

We Compete

As a member of the Georgia Association of Private & Parochial Schools (GAPPS), we offer competitive, varsity-level sports including football, cross country, volleyball, cheerleading, basketball, baseball, tennis, track, and soccer.

We strive to be recognized for our sense of fair play, outstanding effort, and Christ-like character on and off the field.

We Perform

Excellence is the standard in our performing arts program.

From fall musicals and theater productions to vocal music and visual arts, we are committed to 'bringing down the house' while having a good time. We encourage our students to use and master their God-given talents for His glory.
