Academics

At Somerset Christian Academy, we recognize that Jesus Christ is the source of all knowledge.

Our Beliefs

At Somerset Christian Academy, we recognize that Jesus Christ is the source of all knowledge, and that according to Proverbs 10:4, “Wise men lay up knowledge.”


The Bible is the guide for life; therefore, Bible study is a recognized part of the curriculum of Somerset Christian Academy. All students have a Bible class or chapel each day, which includes Bible study, Bible memorization, and practical Christian training.


We also realize that in order to be successful in what the Lord has called us to do, we at SBBCA must provide academic excellence to our students. Our curriculum, combined with our trained and dedicated staff, helps make us successful to that end.


Many of our seniors continue to score more than 200 points higher than the national average on their SAT scores. The high school’s college preparatory curriculum enables graduates to be well prepared for college and adult life.

Curriculum and Courses

We rely heavily on the A Beka Book publications for our academic textbooks. This curriculum is hailed throughout the nation for its strong integration of biblical truth with a high level of scholastic training.


English, math, science, history, Bible, speech, and foreign language are the subjects comprising the core curriculum of Somerset Christian Academy. High school electives include choir, physics, precalculus, consumer math, and economics.
