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 bimonthly chapel on Fridays. We also have scripture projects because we believe in the importance of memorizing and understanding God’s Word.Read More

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 their literary works published! Jr. High students consistently rank in the top 5 in Manitoba in a national Math Contest. High school students experience science first-hand in our modern science lab. The culmination of academic excellence is demonstrated by the fact that our Grade 12 students consistently score higher than the provincial average for provincial standards exams. SCA graduates are well equipped to enter post-secondary studies.
SCA believes technology is a vital skill for all students. Our state-of-the-art computer lab at our Youville campus is equipped with dual-platform iMacs and includes a portable lab with laptop computers. This technology gives students access to new and innovative electives including video game development, digital film/photography, and broadcast media. Students are able to use their skills in the Springs Church media department where they are trained and able to work with cameras and equipment that are used for HD Television production. Teachers also infuse technology throughout all curriculum areas to enhance learning.
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 (IEPs), 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 Resource Personnel; SCA may be limited to support specific requirements a student may have.
Students at every grade level have Spiritual Emphasis Retreats, where the goal is for students to connect with one another and God. As well, every other year, Grade 7 & 8 students have the opportunity to travel to Memphis, TN to learn about human rights and equality. This is as a culminating trip after studying about Civil Rights during the year. Every second year, Gr. 11-12 students can travel to Europe during Spring Break to learn about the world beyond themselves and grow spiritually. Annual ski trips and camping trips are also organized by the Athletic Department.
Youth Parliament allows students an opportunity to practice public speaking and debate skills. Students form ministries, propose legislation and follow parliamentary procedure. This unique experience brings many MLAs, MPs and other elected representatives to our school to watch the proceedings and bring greetings.
