Home improvement class

We are happy to announce the new class that will be beneficial to all students. Improving, repairing, fixing, taping, drilling, cleaning your house is something everyone needs to do. So why not to learn in how to do it properly.

That’s why are we introducing this class. It will have a lot of sections, but the first we made is kitchen and most popular section is faucet repairs. How to disassemble them and mount them accordingly. We took most popular faucets like pull up, pull down, double, touchless, oil bronzed and make a detail guideline how to mount them on the wall and connect them to the pipes properly.

Be sure, to put this kitchen class in your yearly schedule. Your kinds will benefit it greatly.

Sports program

We are offering different kinds of sports activities but everybody knows that the most popular sport in SCA is rowing. We have a beautiful lake just at the back of the facility. We got training all year round. Usually 3-4x per week. Email us if you want to be first that signed up for boat rowing in 2015.

Many medals all telling we are having one of the best teams in the world. Part of the success is definitely our Lifecore machines in our gym. Where you can row each day of a year because it is open 24/7.

For a girl squad contact Jackie via Skype at “JachieRowers”. This is also becoming more and more popular. Especially when we finished 3rd in 2014 championships.

Waterfall lake

Part 2

Continuing: One of the most brilliant ideas was from a kid named Jack. He was smart enough to bring few of waterproof Bluetooth headphones with us. We all knew there will be a few lakes and we will more than likely take a dive. But only he was smart enough to bring that.

waterfall

As soon as we saw this beautiful waterfall we immediately took our clothes off and jumped in. Then his magic arrived. By hooking us up with wireless Bluetooth headphones.

To this day, I will not forget how it felt. Sun was warm just as the water and the background noise of the waterfall was just great with my songs. Awesome day!

Hunting trip

Reminiscing on one of our old trips to the beautiful woods in Nort Carolina. I think it was 2011, spring. We went there with 20-30 guys, for a hunting trip. We took all hunting accessories you can name. Guns, rifles, scopes, crossbows, knives, snipers even katanas.

woodThe fun fact is we all started fearlessly, but you could clearly see after few days it became a little bit scary for some of us. I was first to admit it. We were sleeping on the bad area, it was really exposed to the wildlife. And even a snake could kill us. It wasn’t a pleasurable experience after few days.

I even remember Mike wanting to go home after 4 days of 2 weeks we were planning to be. I got a lot more to tell on this topic. And I will do it in the next post. To be continued.

 

Testimonials

From Donald McQuisten- our 64 year old graduate.!
“Don is very happy that he is getting a diploma. People have told him he would never get it done. He has told me that he has regretted quitting school and not finishing. He said that he couldn’t have done it without Summit’s help and support.”

From Pam Whetstone-
“Summit has been a blessing for us this year! With the kind of busy and dedicated life that Mimi leads, Summit’s curriculum has provided her with the structure, motivation, and accountability she needs to stay as focused & disciplined with her schoolwork, as she is with other areas of her life.
From Phyllis Orth-
“This is Nathan’s final report card. He has completed all his courses, worked hard, and ended early. He did very well on his ACT, (scored a 32), and his SAT, (1340 was his score). He is listed in Who’s Who Among American High School Students 2003-2004. He will be attending Carroll College in Waukesha, WI this fall. He received the Carroll Trustee Scholarship, and Garfield/Kennan History Scholarship.
We are very pleased with how Nathan has matured, how hard he has worked, and what he has accomplished. We wish to thank you for your service to our home school. The need for transcripts and a credited diploma are truly priceless….

From Mary Batson-
“I hope you can use this in your newsletter or from some encouragement to someone.
Summit has been a really good thing for us. This is our second time graduating a student with you, and though we had been using another Christian curriculum, John remembered what Summit had been like for Holly (’97) and requested that he do his last two years of high school from Summit also. Here’s why it was an answer to a real need in our situation: John is a quick learner, and has a strong need to be active and moving, like most 17 yr.olds. Using your curriculum gave him more independence and self- responsibility that he would have had otherwise, because the format is so easily understood. The lifepacs gave him a sense of achievement as he “knocked them off” one by one, until he was up to the tenth, the review lifepac. Summit was so helpful in giving us guidelines to be able to utilize the time he was already putting into community service as a volunteer fireman, as well as working some in his Dad’s fishing business and the town hardware store. It was great being able to use his activity in the youth symphony and music lessons as a high school credit.
For me, the clarity of the directions given regarding high school requirements was great. But the best part, truly, was whenever I needed to call, there was a LIVE person on the other end, kind and helpful and reassuring, no matter what. I never waited long for a call back whenever I missed Sharon or had to leave a message.
You all have been great. We praise God for the Christian folks He has given to minister for Him in the way you have.

Lifepacs

Alpha Omega LIFEPAC Curriculum
Background
Summit Christian Academy has been a distributor of the Alpha Omega LIFEPAC curriculum since we were founded in l981. This curriculum was created over an eighteen month period by a dedicated team of 250 Christian academic writers, 146 of them holding masters’ degrees and 46 of them with their Ph.D. degrees in education. All writers had a minimum of five years teaching experience. These educators were commissioned to create and develop a curriculum that would be superior academically, as well as foster in students a love for learning. The entire curriculum has been revised with color added through grade ten during the past two years.

The five major subjects include Bible, Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies. In addition, there are several electives for the secondary students.

The LIFEPAC System
The individual units of study in the Alpha Omega plan are called LIFEPACS. Ten LIFEPACS comprise a year’s study in any course. Each LIFEPAC booklet takes approximately three weeks to master.

LIFEPAC materials are determined by testing, not by traditional grades. Once students have been tested, they are placed properly in each subject according to their competency. Each student progresses from that point as they master each LIFEPAC sequence.

The program is centered on individual workbooks. Students work on their own, with reinforcement and review from the parent. The materials go beyond simple rote and recall by encouraging the student to grasp the abstract concepts behind each lesson.

Christian Integration
The entire curriculum is Bible-based with an emphasis on Christian values.

Spiritual truths are skillfully woven throughout the lessons so students have Christian principles reinforced with the Math or English skills being taught in the lesson.

Controversial theology or individual denominational doctrines are studiously avoided. The emphasis is on the overriding Christian themes and values that are present in all denominations.
