About us

WHY WE ARE A TOP PRIVATE SCHOOL IN LIVINGSTON PARISH

Southland Christian Academy (SCA) is a State-approved school by the State of Louisiana. Our students are young people who come to us from all around our community.

SCA, a ministry of Open Door Baptist Church, offers a quality education in a caring environment to students in K4-12th grade. Southland provides Christian training along with a solid academic foundation, calling for high standards, both academically and spiritually, with an emphasis on character. Bible is taught every day in all grades, and students attend weekly chapel services. SCA’s priority is educating students and helping them to develop a faith that honors the Lord and guides them throughout their lives. Discover the difference a quality Christian education can make.

Our Mission

Our goal is to assist the home and the church in teaching students the Word of God and the skills and knowledge necessary to live a productive Christian life.

Our Affiliation

SCA is a ministry of Open Door Baptist Church (ODBC). SCA is also a partner with ODBC’s Child Development Center (CDC). Our ministries began in 1968, so we have deep roots in our community and a great heritage of lives we've influenced.
