SCA offers an Alternative Program within the Elk Island Public School (EIPS) district and admits students via an admission process. The educational philosophy of SCA is based on a Christ-centered education based on a Christian worldview. A personal, dynamic relationship with Jesus is at the heart of our mission and school culture. Parents and their children are expected to acknowledge and affirm their support for the mission and biblical principles of the school (see Society Handbook link below).
Admission Process for New Students
For a student to be admitted to Strathcona Christian Academy, the following two processes are required to be completed:
A: Register with Elk Island Public Schools
All students who wish to attend Strathcona Christian Academy within EIPS must register through Elk Island Public School’s online registration process.
- If you are a new student to EIPS, please click on the following link to register (open year-round): New Student Registration
- If you are a current student in EIPS, please click on the following link to re-register and select SCE/SCS (February 1-28, 2019): Returning Student Registration. Please be aware that 2019/20 registration for current EIPS students is now closed.
B: Attend a School Interview
If requested, families will attend an interview with the school administration. The interview ensures families understand and endorse the school’s mission and vision, and it provides an opportunity for families to ask questions about the school’s programming and philosophy. Only families who attend an interview are considered for admission. Families of all new students accepted into the program will receive a confirmation email after the interview.
SCA Society Fees
The SCA Society collects fees to cover the costs of offering the Alternative Program. For 2019/20, these fees are $960 per kindergarten student and $1,480 for students in all other grades. A non-refundable commitment fee of $120 per student is due upon enrollment, and the remaining fees are payable throughout the school year.
