SCA Mission Statement:  

SCA partners with families to provide an outstanding Biblically-integrated education that equips students to: succeed professionally, know God personally, serve God passionately, and edify others persistently.

SCA Vision Statement:

SCA will dynamically impact the world for the glory of God by producing academically-equipped, spiritually-shaped, and Holy Spirit empowered individuals for strengthening  the Body of Christ, The Church.

The Academy was established in 1986 due to the partnership of Crossroads Church (formerly, First Assembly of God in Callahan).

We reach children from 2 years old through 12th Grade. We are located in Callahan, Florida and currently serve families throughout the Nassau County and North Jacksonville area.  Sonshine Christian Academy is fully accredited to meet students needs spiritually, academically and socially.  Our academy has been accredited through the League of Christian Schools since May, 1992.
