“For the past six years, SCA has seen tremendous growth, that included a doubling of the secondary enrollment,” shared SCA Head of School Linda Harrelson. “In order to physically accommodate new students and increase course offerings, it is imperative that we build additional classrooms and a new gymnasium. The funds from the generous Goppert Foundation grant will be used for this purpose and help us serve additional students for years to come.”

The SCA Legacy of Faith Capital Campaign will provide students with additional music and general purpose classrooms and one-on-one performing arts practice rooms.  In addition, a large gymnasium with locker rooms and weight room facilities will be added to support the growing athletic program.  

“The Goppert Foundation is excited to support a campaign that will reach so many children in the Kansas City community,” shared Goppert Foundation Vice President Autumn Markley. “We take pride in financially supporting projects that make a sustainable difference in our community and we feel that supporting the SCA Capital Campaign is a worthy investment in the youth and future of our community.”  

Summit Christian Academy (SCA) is an independent, non-denominational Christian school serving nearly 800 preschool through high school students. Established in 1989, SCA has been named one of the top 5 private schools in the Kansas City area. SCA is located on a 38-acre campus and is a member of the Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA).
