Elementary School

Develop a Genuine Joy of Learning

We recognize each student represents a tremendous potential to impact the world for Jesus Christ in whatever arena they find themselves in future years. We encourage our students to explore varied interests and find joy in the process. Education is an adventure that God uses to teach us about ourselves and grow in our understanding of His purpose for our life.

Early Childhood

Our Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten classes are joyous and vibrant!  Our young learners develop social, emotional and academic skills in an active, multi-sensory, explorative setting.  Our goal is to provide experiences daily, which will build students’ confidence and independence as they learn not only “school skills” but, more importantly, the JOY of exploring and learning.  We offer a 2-day (half or full day) program for 3-year-old students and a 3-day or 5-day (half or full day) program for our 4-year-old students.


Develop Christian character traits that glorify God

We were created by God.  He loves us deeply and desires a personal relationship with each one of us.  Knowing Him and learning about His Word, the Bible, gives life meaning and purpose.  Each of us can glorify God in ways that are unique.  Developing great character traits enables us to share God’s love to those around us.

Provide a variety of instructional approaches to meet the diverse ways students learn

Our exceptional team of teachers is our greatest asset.  They are highly trained educators who care deeply for each student.  They recognize true learning happens differently and individual learning styles are varied.  Each child is a precious gift from the Creator, and it is a teacher’s responsibility to come alongside each student, nurturing their abilities, strengthening their weaknesses, and guiding them to be discerning, critical thinkers.

Biblical Integration

Our faith permeates all of life.  Teachers at Scottsdale Christian Academy are committed to helping our students discover the truths of scripture in everything they learn.  Forming a Christian world view enables Biblical principles which will guide them in their understanding of the world God created.

  • Letter from our Principal

    Welcome to Scottsdale Christian Academy! We are thrilled about your interest in our school and would love to meet you, share our campus and program, and get to know your family. For a personal tour, please contact Karin Suter, Director of Admissions, at 602-992-5100 ext. 1094, or email her at ksuter@scamail.org. Scottsdale Christian Academy was founded in 1968 and continues its robust educational program and strong commitment to Biblical understanding and integration. Many of our parents attended SCA as children and, valuing their own experience at Scottsdale Christian Academy, have enrolled their children. A large number of our teachers and staff members have been at Scottsdale Christian Academy for over 20 years, and some have been with us 30 or more years. It doesn’t take long to sense the strong “family” community that exists in this nurturing and loving environment for which we are known.

    Our desire is that your child will feel loved and valued. We want them to not only be well prepared for the next grade but to flourish and thrive academically and spiritually. We encourage critical thinking, problem-solving, innovation, and creativity in addition to a firm academic foundation. We encourage a mindset of service to others – on our campus, in our neighborhoods, our community, and even around the world by supporting parachurch organizations and our own high school students during their annual missions trips.

    Throughout their years at Scottsdale Christian Academy, students will gain all the knowledge and skills necessary to positively influence and significantly impact our world for Jesus Christ.
    Come join us on the journey!
