Senior High Segway Program


 (def: the act of changing smoothly from one setting to another.  A smooth transition.  In this case, moving from high school to post-high school plans for career, college or the military as successfully as possible.)

Dual enrollment for high school students in college courses has gained acceptance and popularity and continues to expand. This program provides exposure to college work while in a high school setting.

Summit Christian Academy’s Senior High Segway Program is unique and flexible, offering students the opportunity to take traditional content courses in the classroom as well as college-level courses online or on Clarks Summit University’s campus. The program is designed for 11th and 12th grade students to earn their SCA high school diploma while also earning college credit. Each Segway course earns a student one high school credit and three college credits. Students may use credits toward careers, college, the military, or technical and trade schools.

Why Segway?
  • Traditional courses are completed at SCA in a classroom setting with other high school students.
  • Segway courses are completed through Clarks Summit University, either on campus or online, depending on course schedules, allowing students the ability to take advantage of course offerings at CSU.
  • The Segway Program offers financial incentives for saving money on college tuition.  College credits earned in high school provide students and families an average savings of $1,600 per three credit course.
  • The Segway Program maintains a sense of community through high school graduation, and provides additional opportunities for extra-curriculars and camaraderie among peers.
  • Students benefit as they may use credits toward college, the military, or technical and trade schools.
  • College credits earned while at SCA may transfer to any college of the student’s choice.
  • Segway students participate in a missions ministry trip for ministry, fun, and learning, and earn high school credit for the trip toward graduation.
  • Because of a more flexible schedule for students in the program, special opportunities for independent study may be possible.

Missions Ministry Trip:  Spring 2021


SCA tuition will be the same as for students enrolled in grades 7-12 for all courses required for graduation and which are offered at SCA.  If SCA does not offer a course a student must have for graduation in SCA’s 4-year, 9th-12th grades program, SCA will pay the tuition and the cost of textbooks for the needed course through CSU.  If a student wishes to graduate at the end of 11th grade, SCA will consider accepting credits earned through CSU toward graduation requirements at SCA but will not pay for courses completed at CSU for early graduation.

If a student wishes to enroll in a CSU course, online or on campus, that student will be responsible for CSU tuition which currently is $420 per course plus the cost of textbooks.  Courses through CSU taken as a substitute for a required science or math course offered at SCA must be approved by SCA in advance and will only be considered for those enrolled in SCA’s 4-year program.
