Serve as Christ's Hands & Feet.

A Safe Place to Call Home

At SLA, we encourage all our students to treat one another as brothers and sisters in Christ. In addition to annual anti-bullying campaigns to educate and inspire students, each classroom takes an ongoing, proactive approach to teaching kindness to others and respect for all. If issues do arise, our climate safety program provides easy, convenient reporting of any issues simply by logging online to www.mysla.org/help.

Grades 5-6 students can participate in basketball, while grades 7-12 can join baseball, basketball, cross country, soccer, and volleyball.
