The Junior High years can be challenging for both students and parents. Seffner Christian Academy’s junior high vision is to provide a consistent, accountable, and loving environment for students to flourish in with sound academics, spiritual guidance, and a variety of activities in which they can participate. The junior high department offers a challenging and diverse program that prepares students to take the next step into high school. Students are taught organizational and study skills to enable them to be prepared for upcoming academic and social challenges in the future.
The SCA Junior High team is a caring and committed staff of experienced teachers that help provide the balance necessary for students to grow academically, physically and spiritually in a secure and safe setting. The culture and curriculum builds the bridge between elementary and high school, preparing them for more responsibility. The program offers a strong, core curriculum of mathematics, language arts, science, reading, and history with a variety of electives including art, band, choir, critical thinking, world cultures, and technology. Courses are taught on an advanced level, and honors mathematics and science courses are offered as an option in seventh and eighth grade. All junior high students utilize iPads for textbooks, assignments, and instructional enhancement.
Every junior high student participates in physical education and Bible classes on a daily basis, which are built into their eight period a day schedule. Seventh through eighth grade students have the privilege of taking a Latin infused Language Arts course which aids in vocabulary building, higher standardized test scores, and high school preparation.
Most significantly, the junior high team strives to help students mature spiritually during these two pivotal years. While working with the families, the school can assist students in becoming Christian worldview thinkers and to develop a biblical set of values that will stand up to the pressures of this world. These values are reinforced in weekly chapel services (for all 7th – 12th grade students).
