About SCA

Mission Statement

Simonton Christian Academy's mission is to provide the opportunity for a biblically based, quality educational experience for its students by emphasizing traditional studies and the teaching of the Bible, Christian ethics, and a Christian world view.

History

Simonton Christian Academy was founded in 1992 by parents within the membership of Simonton Community Church. This single concentrated effort of a small group of Christians has blessed SCA students with spiritual and academic standards for a lifetime.


Government

Simonton Christian Academy is a Texas non-profit organization, part of Simonton Community Church. The school is administered by Simonton Community Church Board of Trustees, which is responsible to the Simonton Community Church. The Board of Trustees consists of seven persons, the eighth being the Senior Pastor of Simonton Community Church who serves as a non-voting member. The Board of Trustees is responsible for all activities of the school, including formulation and implementation of policy, administration of finances, employment, curriculum, etc.

Curriculum

Simonton Christian Academy offers classes from pre-school age 3 and pre-kindergarten age 4 through the 5th grade. In addition to the standard subjects, the Academy offers Art, Music, Science Lab, Computer Lab, Chapel, and Bible. Physical Education classes have the use of a full-sized gym and outdoor playing field.

Our school utilizes the following Christian-based curriculums:  ABeka, Positive Action, Bob Jones University, Purposeful Design, ACSI, and A Helping Hand.
 
 
Our Beliefs
 
    
The Holy Scriptures:
We believe both Old and New Testaments to be the inspired Word of God, infallible, God-breathed, inerrant in the original writings, and the supreme and final authority of faith and practice.
 

The Godhead:
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), identical in nature, equal in power and glory, and possessing the same attributes and perfections.
 

The Total Depravity of Man:
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam's sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, became alienated from God, and is and shall remain essentially and unchangeably depraved apart from divine grace.
 

The Person and Work of Christ:
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God in order that He might reveal God, fulfill prophecy, and redeem man.  To this end He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, thus receiving a human body and a sinless nature.
 
We believe that He accomplished our redemption through his death on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice, and that this redemption is made sure to us by His actual physical resurrection from among the dead.  We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is now in heaven, exalted at the right hand of God, where He now fulfills His High Priestly ministry as representative, intercessor, and advocate for His people.
 
 
The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit:
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Trinity who convicts the world of sin, righeousness, and judgment.  He also in this present age regenerates believers in Christ, baptizes them unto the day of redemption, bestows spiritual gifts upon each one, and fills those who are dependent upon Him.
 
 
Salvation:
We believe that salvation is the gift of God, brought to man by grace, and received through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed for the forgiveness of our sins.
 
We believe the scriptures teach that regeneration, or the new birth, is that change wrought in the soul by the Holy Spirit, by which a new nature and spiritual life not before possessed, are imparted, and the person becomes a new creation in Christ Jesus.

 
The Keeping Power of God:
We believe that all who truly receive Christ as Savior are kept by the power of God secure forever and shall never perish, this being vouchsafed by the sealing ministry of the Holy Spirit.
 

The Responsibility of the Believer:
We believe that all believers should seek to live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Lord and Savior, and that separation from sinful pleasures and practices is commanded of God.
 
We believe that it is the obligation of every believer to witness by life and by word to the truths of the Holy Scriptures and to seek that the gospel be proclaimed to all the world.
 
We believe that it is the responsibility of all believers to remember the work of the Lord in prayer and active participation, and to support it with their means as the Lord has prospered them.
 

The Church:
We believe that the Church, which had its beginnings on the day of Pentecost, is the Body and Bride of Christ, and is a spiritual organism made up of all born again persons, irrespective of their affiliation with Christian organizations.
 
We believe that it is the responsibility of each believer, as a member of this spiritual organism, to affiliate with a local organization as a testimony of his relationship to Christ, for his own edification and growth, for fellowship with others of like-mind, and to further the evangelization of the lost.
 
 
The Personality of Satan:
We believe that Satan is a person who is the declared enemy of both God and man; he is the Devil, the Evil One, and the Accuser of the brethren.
 
 
The Blessed Hope:
We believe in the personal, imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ in the air to take His church to be forever with Himself to share His glory.  This Blessed Hope set before us in Scripture involves the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the translation of those of His own who are alive and remain unto His coming.
 
 
The Tribulation and Second Coming:
We believe in the second coming of Christ according to the prophesies.
 
 
Eternal State:
We believe in the resurrection of the dead, life hereafter, and the association of the faithful with Christ everlasting.
 
 
Church Ordinances:
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ instituted the ordinances of water baptism and the Lord's Supper, to be observed until His return, not as a means of obtaining salvation, but as evidence of obedience.
