Letter from the Athletic Director

Having the word “Christian” in our school name means little if we do not work diligently to represent Christ in every area of our life. Representing Christ on the field of play starts with practice. Each athlete is encouraged to be excellent in their sport and position, knowing that when they play they are glorifying God through the talents He has given them. We strive to be recognized by our competitors for our sense of fair play, outstanding effort and Christ-like character.

For more information on our sports programs, contact our Athletic Director.

We compete with excellence!

We offer competitive sports programs in football, cross country, volleyball, cheerleading, basketball, baseball, tennis, track & field, soccer, golf, and bass fishing.

We Excel.
We are a college preparatory school accredited by both Cognia (formerly 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 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.

Frequently Asked Questions about Athletics

The sport season dates are set each year. Refer to the individual tabs above for start dates. Our MS is independent, and our HS teams plays in the GAPPS conference. Beginning in Fall 2024, we will become a member of the Georgia Independent Athletic Association (GIAA).

The following must be on file with the Athletic Assistant: A physical signed by a physician in the last 13 months, concussion information sheet.  All forms are available in the athletic office and on team app.

There is a tryout period at the start of the season. Teams are then set. JV and Varsity can move up and down as determined by coach and talent. 

Students must be in attendance at school for at least half the day or by 12 noon to be eligible to participate in that day’s practice or contest. If your student is ill, please e-mail or call the coach to let him or her know your child will be missing that day’s activities. If your student is going to miss school on a competition day for an appointment, you must call the SCA Office and excuse your student ahead of time or in the morning. Notifying just the coach will not be sufficient.  

Yes, we do have opportunities for homeschool (AES) students to play.

Generally, practices are held Monday-Friday. Practice times vary but are usually 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm for 6-8th grade students and 3:30 pm – 6:00 pm for HS students. Some sports will practice in the morning before school, from 6:00 am – 8:00 am depending on the weather, logistics or coaches’ preference. 

The school transports athletes by bus to competitions. If a parent wants to transport their son/daughter home following a contest, the parent needs to find the coach and initial next to their student’s name on the roster. If someone other than a parent is taking the student home, that parent must speak to see the head coach directly to have a student ride with another adult. 

Check team app. This is our main form of communication with athletics. If there is a last minute change, still check team app or call the office at 229-883-5677 if unsure. It is our goal to communicate cancellations and other events via team app. 

All uniforms and equipment checked out or given to the student by coach for seasons are totally the player’s and family’s responsibility- If the uniform is damaged or irreplaceable the cost is assumed by the athlete.

Please contact our Athletic office at sports@scaeagles.com or 229-883-5677 ext 1360.
