SCA homeschooling program options give you the opportunity to evaluate the individual needs of your family and each of your children. You know your child best. Student’s age, temperament, and ability determine time spent on instruction and assignments at home.
“When we have lost our way, the quickest way forward is usually to go home.” - C.S. Lewis
Our 3-day students complete the work in class that 2-day students complete Friday at home with a parent.

It is vital for parents to grasp and affirm the Classical Christian Educational philosophy practiced by SCA.
Hours and tuition rates are listed on our tuition page.
Central to the classical tradition is the the trivium, the three unique stages of learning.
The mastery of something new always moves the learner through each stage: grammar, logic, and rhetoric.
The beauty of the trivium process is its inherant ability to develop the intellectual capabilities which guide the student in using the tools of learning. SCA is mindful of these stages of development and assign the appropriate weight in the design and modification of our curriculum.
“The desirable fruit of a Classical Christian Education is it moves the student from study for their own sake towards the greater work of the soul to be a willing disciple sitting under one more wise.”
Sandra Lawson, Founder and Director
Grammar students will build a strong foundation, beginning with the basics of spelling, reading, writing and arithmetic, as well as an emphasis upon memorization, observation, and developing logic skills.
Students entering the second stage of the trivium, the logic stage, while continuing to build upon the foundational skills, will be taught how to reason from a logical and explicitly Christian perspective. Socratic pedagogy will be used to lead the students in understanding the ordered relationships between ideas and events.
Rhetoric students will continue learning under Socratic pedagogy to complete a multi-year study of classical rhetoric and will be given the opportunity to explore and evaluate original and profound ideas.
Philippians 4:8 will be the aesthetic mandate taught so that our students would learn to think on “whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy, think on these things.”
