At Shore Christian Academy we use the Abeka curriculum. Since 1972, the Abeka curriculum has challenged students by providing them with an "excellent education from a Christian perspective". This teacher-led, character-building philosophy comes from a biblical foundation—Proverbs 22:6,
“TRAIN UP A child IN THE WAY HE SHOULD GO,
AND WHEN HE IS OLD HE WILL NOT depart FROM IT."
You'll find Scripture and Biblical principles used to emphasize and illustrate concepts in every subject.
In grammar, you see God's order, in history you see God's hand and in science, you see His design.

The Pre-K and Kindergarten programs at Shore Christian Academy utilize an advanced curriculum. Our students receive spiritual training through Bible songs, stories and verse memorizataion. They learn names, sounds, and pictures of all letters of the alphabet, counting, and recognizing numbers. They also enjoy a variety of circle time activities including weather, calendar, language development, music, and art. With 2 recess times, students get plenty of outdoor activities.
Our programs are focused on age-appropriate material and arranged within a structured schedule in a Christ-centered environment. The day does not consist of mostly free playtime but rather learning time presented in a fun and exciting way.
Parents are encouraged to start their children in our Pre-K program to keep them on track for the advanced nature of our curriculum.
