From Shalom Christian Academy Elementary School Principal Jaime Keller

Welcome! I warmly invite you to learn more about the elementary school at Shalom Christian Academy.

As you enter our elementary school, you will immediately sense a culture of community. Through the leading of our dedicated faculty and staff, students are encouraged to interact with one another in positive ways and are held to high standards for their behavior. Parents are encouraged to be active participants in their child’s education. Whether it is hosting a class party, reading to a group of students, or assisting with one of our many events, parents are an integral part of our culture of community at Shalom. Our experienced teachers are dedicated to assuring that each student obtains academic achievement and desire to work closely with the parents in this process.

The Lord has richly blessed SCA with outstanding faculty, staff, students, and families. We take the responsibility of transforming our students into spiritual champions very seriously. I pray a blessing upon your family as you consider your child’s educational future. We would be thrilled to partner with you during this process.

If this information has raised further questions, please feel free to contact me by phone (717-375-2223) or email (jkeller@shalomca.com). I would be happy to schedule a tour of our elementary school and showcase our amazing community.
