The Student Center for Achievement (SCA) works collaboratively with students and staff while partnering with families to offer distinctive services that foster student growth. The SCA team is committed to student success throughout the CCS K-12 experience. The SCA team is passionate about helping all students achieve and develop to the fullest extent possible in God’s timing.
The Student Center for Achievement offers individual instruction, intervention, and curriculum support across all grade levels and subject areas. We monitor student progress using a variety of assessment measures. From assessment data gathered, and with family and teacher feedback, our team develops individual service plans. These plans are continuously updated, as students grow and change during the school year. This is a result of incorporating researched-based methodology during the instructional time spent with students. The SCA also offers curriculum support in honors and AP courses, in addition to coursework from the standard track. Our highly qualified academic specialists assist in learning processes, overall student achievement, communication, organization, and standardized test preparation. Test accommodations are also available to qualifying students, and established school-wide through the SCA division.
Additionally, the Student Center for Achievement supports our international students, as they work to become fluent in the English language. We recognize that these students work diligently to participate and excel within the parameters of our rigorous Upper School curriculum.
Lastly, the Student Center for Achievement challenges qualifying students in our Advanced Seminars program. Advanced seminars are designed to enhance critical thinking and increase real life problem solving skills while incorporating biblical principles. Advanced Seminars are currently offered to students in grades 3-8.
In every aspect of this ministry, we are intentional and prayerful as we make decisions confidentially on behalf of the students. Services and programs offered by the Student Center for Achievement are flexible, and may be conducted individually, in small groups, or in a large group format dependent upon the needs of the students.
The Student Center for Achievement is blessed to be an extension of the Ministry of Carmel Christian School. Our prayerful mission aims to provide the highest quality educational support to CCS students, families,and staff members.
