Check out this video by our IT Director Vicki Davis on the 10 Tips for Education’s Overcomers, which is now syndicated on CMRubinWorld. Mrs. Davis explains how we do Distance Learning, using the word “overcomers.”


SCA families, media, and many outside of our school have taken note. Here are some things being said about SCA's transition to Distance Learning!


“I can’t express enough gratitude to both you (Mrs. Johnson) and Mrs. Butler for completely thinking out of the box for distance learning. It is obvious you both want the kids to succeed and learn and if that means developing new systems, then that is what you will do. This is a great plan. Thanks again.”

Amy wright:

"We think DL is going great! My kids have adjusted to it so well; they’re loving it. They are each able to access their zoom classes and GC on their own devices, so they each spend the mornings separated in their own bedrooms. This allows them to have privacy, and their teachers have done a FANTASTIC job helping them past any technical difficulties. We’re amazed at the level of professionalism all the way across the board! We have said many schools and universities could take notes on the way SCA has handled it!"

dwayne tanner:

"My family is adjusting with transitions at work and now this with the kids, but all is well! God’s grace is sufficient and we are grateful for the diligent efforts each of your staff are putting forth to make DL possible."

missy skidmore:

"(Distance Learning) is going great! No problems, and it has been easy for all of us to understand. (The kids) seriously have enjoyed it! Despite the bad circumstances, the slower pace of life right now has been a blessing to all of us. So far it’s worked excellent!"

Deane mcdaniel:

"We are so thankful and blessed to be a part of SCA and the wonderful staff! Thank you for all of your hard work! You are amazing!"


We asked our students to share their Distance Learning set-ups. Here are some of them working in their homes.
