School Reviews

5   5/17/2016
SCCA is an excellent choice to provide a high quality education with abundant support from the teachers, guidance counselors and staff. Students can participate in a variety of clubs, activities, and field trips/learning experiences. Students receive individualized help as they need it, and parents are kept well informed of their student's progress and achievements. Students can work at their own pace and level, but are monitored carefully by the teachers and staff. It is a great choice to have the benefits of homeschooling and all the benefits from a free public education.
