Our goal is to guide students in becoming life-long learners who are able to engage the world. Students are prepared academically and vocationally through a comprehensive curriculum that offers a variety of course options. The living curriculum concept is vital as students form values, beliefs, and habits.
Shalom Christian Academy athletics is an integral part of our mission of preparing each student for a life of consequence in this world for the kingdom of God. Athletics provide an opportunity to learn life lessons and develop character and skills that will help student athletes use their gifts and talents to honor God.
