Sherwood Christian Academy was founded in 1985 as a ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in an effort 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 students in grades K3-12 boasting nearly 900 alumni. Our students represent over 75 churches from across the greater Albany area. Our size allows every student to be known by name by teachers and peers alike; yet, we are able to offer a quality, Bible-based educational program that we believe is second to none! At SCA, we truly have it all!
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. High schoolers take college credit courses to be prepared for the next level. Our graduates excel at the college of their choice and finish with distinction as they enter their chosen field.
We encourage our students to put 'hands and feet' to their faith to be difference makers in the world for the cause of Christ. At SCA, we purpose to bring all students to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, then build them up in Christ through in-depth Bible instruction, weekly chapel messages, community service opportunities, and mission trips as well as personal discipleship by teachers and coaches who serve as mentors, eventually to launch them out as graduates to serve Christ with their very lives.
As a member of the Georgia Association of Private and Parochial Schools (GAPPS), we offer a dozen competitive, varsity-level sports including football, cross country, volleyball, cheerleading, basketball, baseball, tennis, track and field, and soccer. We strive to be recognized for our sense of fair play, outstanding effort, and Christ-like character.
Excellence is the standard in our performing arts program. From musicals and theater productions to vocal music competitions and visual arts, we are committed to raising the bar while having a good time. We encourage our students to use and master their God-given talents for His glory.
