Pathways to Learning

Engaging Every Student

Scottsdale Christian Academy desires to be a place the whole family can attend. You will find opportunities for students who qualify for our honors level curricular tracks and then for students who may need additional help to succeed in the classroom. We believe that God has created each child with unique talents and abilities, and no matter what those are we desire to create a culture where every student loves to learn!

Honors Level Learning

  • Grades 2-5

    Honors

    Instruction is dedicated to providing a challenging blend of higher level thinking activities and competitions that will stimulate the minds of our students. Students are invited to be a part of this program through a series of Cognitive Ability Tests and other areas of consideration by teachers and administration.

  • Grades 6-8

    Soar

    Middle School Soar offers students who demonstrate previous high achievement in specific areas of strength the opportunity to experience the extended program of studies at greater levels of depth and complexity. The MS Soar elective will be enrichment in nature. It will also offer students an opportunity to develop relationships and collaborate with other high achieving students across the grades.

  • Grades 9-12

    Advanced Placement, Honors & Dual Enrollment

    The high school offers students opportunities to challenge themselves through Advancement Placement (AP) courses, Honors level courses or Dual Enrollment courses taught in partnership with our higher education partners.

Creating Pathways of Learning

Scottsdale Christian Academy offers services and accommodations for students with mild learning disabilities through the Learning Resource Program called Pathways.  Students in the Pathways program are supported to help them grow to their God-given potential. We believe that ALL students can learn and are uniquely created and gifted by God; we also believe that He has a purpose and plan for their future.

SCA determines whether we have the resources to serve students on a case by case basis.
