SCHOOL CLOSURE UPDATE 4/10/2020:

After thoughtful consideration, SCA’s governing board approved to amend the 2019-2020  school calendar to designate Friday, April 30th, 2020, as the last day of school for the 2019-2020 school year. On this date, scholars will be released for summer break.

SCA’s governing board also voted to amend the 2020-2021 school calendar to include additional instructional days to teach standards that were not covered in entirety during the 2019-2020 school year. The calendar amendments will be far more effective in reaching all scholars than continuing with distance learning for the remainder of the 2019-2020 calendar year. Please keep in mind,  the amended start date and 2020-2021 calendar are both subject to change based on government mandates and guidance to ensure the safety of our SCA family. Click here to view the amended 2020-2021 calendar.

Admissions Information

IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ: The application window for the 2020-2021 school year is now open.  Click the New Scholar Application link below to complete an application. Be sure to complete a separate application for each child you would like included in the lottery process.  The application window will close at midnight on January 31st. Any applications received after that time will be added to the waiting list in the order they were completed.   

All waiting lists reset on January 1, 2020.  If your child is on the waiting list for the 2019-2020 school year (the current year) and you would like them to be included in the admissions lottery for the 2020-2021 school year, please complete a New Scholar Application now.

An admissions lottery has been scheduled for Tuesday, February 4, 2020, at 5:30 pm in the school’s Dining Room. The lottery is open to the public. The lottery is drawn to determine who is offered any available spots and the order of the waiting list.

Scholars who are offered a spot through the lottery will have until 2 pm on Friday, February 7, 2020, to complete an enrollment packet and secure their spot. Any spots that become available after the lottery has taken place will be filled using the waiting list.

We highly encourage families to prepare the enrollment packet (including all required documentation), which is available by clicking the link to the right or in the school’s front office, prior to the lottery so that they do not miss the deadlines set for enrollment. Due to the volume of our waiting list, the turnaround time for enrollment is often 3 days. We cannot accept incomplete enrollment packets.

SCA will hold an Open House on Tuesday, January 14th at 9:00 am & 12:00 pm for prospective families.  During the open house, guests will take a tour of the school, learn about the unique & innovative small-school environment, and find out more about the admissions process.

You may also request a tour by clicking the link to the right or calling the school at 229-244-5750.
