Boys and girls who participated in athletics during the last school year at Summit Christian Academy were recognized at the highest academic level by Missouri State High School Activities Association.
During the 2015-16 schoolyear, all 19 of SCA’s junior varsity and varsity athletic teams received the MSHSAA Scholastic Achievement Award at the Outstanding level. “Outstanding” is the highest level offered by MSHSAA. To be eligible, a team must have earned an average grade-point average of 3.25 during their season of competition. The average GPA for SCA high school athletic teams during their season of competition this year was 3.74.
“As a school, we place a high value on academic excellence,” said Emir Ruiz-Esparza, SCA’s former high school principal. “It’s great to see our coaches and our student-athletes living out this espoused value in a very tangible way.”
SCA currently offers 13 different athletic programs. Of those 13, individuals or teams from six programs competed at the state level this past year.
