Points Of Pride

We, at Shepherd's Christian Academy, are proud to share that our students score average and above on the Terra Nova standardized tests each year. This comes from our excellent academic curriculum and excellent instructional strategies. Those students who successfully complete our customized curriculum leave our school fully equipped to successfully soar within any other curriculum. This is one of the main goals of our mission, and we are proud to say that we have fulfilled this goal.

This year we are adding new events to our school activities, such as our first annual Multicultural Spring Festival, to teach our children about others' cultural backgrounds. We will also be reaching out to the community with a food drive, because we recognize that the school is within, and a part of, the community and must be a support to the community.
