10. Preschool - 12th grade

Sugar Hill Christian Academy offers opportunities for kids in preschool all the way through high school. We truly view our SHCA community as a family, and once you start here, we promise you are going to want to stay here.

9. Voted “Best of Gwinnett” Every Year Since 2016

SHCA is one of the best schools in our community and that has been confirmed over and over!

8. In-Person Learning

We believe that being together is the best way to grow. For that reason, SHCA is committed to offering in-person learning experiences for students whenever possible.

7. On-Campus Security

One of our top priorities is providing a safe, educational environment for our students. On-campus security includes locked outside doors, trained and armed security personnel, and cameras in the hallways and parking lots. Using the Raptor Visitor Management System, each and every visitor is instantly screened against the registered sex offender databases in all fifty states.

6. Ranked in Top 2% Nationwide in Standardized Testing

We pride ourselves on strong academics and the numbers back that up! Your child will have a top tier academic experience at SHCA.

We value each student and believe that smaller class sizes are a part of giving each student the best opportunity to learn and grow. Your child will have personal care and connection to their teachers and classmates at SHCA.

4. Award Winning Band and Chorus Programs

SHCA believes that a well-rounded education will best prepare your child to succeed. That’s why we offer excellent programs for your child to grow in appreciation and proficiency in the arts.

3. A Tradition of Excellence in Athletics

Our athletic department is a beacon to our North Atlanta community. Our coaches and athletic staff ensure that our student athletes keep their focus on Christ and develop an understanding of what Christian service and leadership mean. Our multiple state championships in golf, volleyball, basketball and cross country are an example of the excellence that SHCA has come to expect from student athletes.

2. Accreditation

Sugar Hill Christian Academy is accredited by both The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
