At SCA we believe that God should be part of our daily life. We teach daily Bible classes as well as integrating God’s Word into all subject areas. We teach our students to practice Christ-like character to become wise and productive citizens, active for Christ in the real world in a Spirit Contemporary way. We have weekly Chapel on Thursdays. We also have monthly scripture verses because we believe in the importance of memorizing and understanding God’s Word.

We are purposing to create leaders by having our Grade 3-6 students take turns daily reading scripture and praying over the intercom. We have house teams and reading buddies to encourage leadership and team building. Students lead praise and worship during chapels. We ask our students to volunteer with the school, starting in Grade 3. We want to teach them the importance and joy found in giving back.

All students go on a ministry field trip. Some sing at malls or retirement homes, some clean up the community, some go to Winnipeg Harvest, Springs Inner City, MCC and Siloam Mission to learn about the difference these organizations are making and to help. We fund raise and support 16 sponsor children through an organization in Africa called Watoto. Each elementary Grade level has a boy and girl that they support.

Our provincially certified educators incorporate academic excellence throughout all subject areas offering experiences that will challenge students. Our students are taught fundamental writing skills and many of our students have had these literary works published! Reading and Writing month celebrates and motivates students to further engage in creativity and application in these areas. Design Technology with hands-on projects and fischertechnik and participation in Science Processes offer enrichment for all. Strong academic foundations in Elementary, lead to the culmination of academic excellence as demonstrated by the fact that our Grade 12 students consistently score higher than the provincial average for provincial standards exams. We’re preparing students for their present, future and eternity!

Student Services

Remediation and enrichment are priorities of the Student Services Department. Student Services teachers and Educational Assistants (EAs) support the specific student educational programs at SCA. SCA has access to selected clinicians through a shared service agreement with Louis Riel School Division. Reading, Language and Math Groups, Individualized Education Plans (IEP’s), Success Plans, classroom adaptations, Occupational Therapy plans, Social Thinking programs, etc. are implemented as required. As SCA is an independent school, SCA must know in advance every potential or probable need required of our Student Services department; SCA may be limited to support specific requirements a student may have.

At SCA, Core French begins in Kindergarten, as we use the dynamic program “Histoires en Action”.  Basic French is mandatory for students in Manitoba up to Gr. 8. French then continues as an elective in Gr. 9-12. Our students’ results in French speaking, writing and listening skills are exceptional! Throughout the year, students gain experience and appreciation for Canadian French culture and language and celebrate Festival du Voyageur at the Elementary Campus with Jr. High students coming over to assist Preschool to Grade 6 students at the incredible stations (bannock and taffy making, leg wrestling, pea soup and storytelling, crafts, snowshoeing, etc.).

“I have been teaching French workshops for years and was really impressed with how strong your student’s French language skills were. Continue with what you’re doing because the results speak for themselves.”

SCA believes technology is a vital skill for all students. Technology is infused into regular classroom instruction, as teachers implement the new Literacy with ICT (information and communication technology) initiative from the Department of Education. Our computer lab allows each student to work at a computer station, accommodating an entire classroom. Students hone their math, language, research and “Office” skills, while Grades 4 to 6 students also become proficient in keyboarding skills. Training our students in ethical and safe practices with technology and social media is our priority.

In addition, Grade 5 students enjoy amazing adventures and devotional times at Winkler Bible Camp for an overnight trip, developing a closer relationship with God and peers. SCA Elementary values experiences for our students in reaching out to others by having our students sing at Senior homes, share the message of Jesus at Christmas through songs at Kildonan Place and the Forks Market, as well as bringing our students to participate in activities and donating to Siloam Mission, Springs Inner City, MCC, and more!
