A safe place for children to grow, learn, and play. Our students learn to work in teams, with the teacher and with each other. Our curriculum includes music, art, physical education, and technology lessons  as well as core subjects. Our students use a variety of tools – from computers to costumes – to make learning fun as well as educational. Our families and friends come from around the world. Our SCA’s annual food drive is just one service-learning project that helps make our students good citizens. All of our staff members are true heroes, every day.
