Dear South Colchester Academy Families,  


Clear communication is vital for parents, students, and the school community to work together for academic success and wellness for all South Colchester Academy Students. Our collective work and connections between school and families allows for these successes to happen. With this in mind, please keep a copy of our communication plan, along with the communication plans sent home by individual teachers so you have them to reference. This document provides you an overview of how we will stay in contact with you, and you with us. Please feel free to call, email, or drop by if you ever have a question or concern.  


I am looking forward to working with you all throughout the course of this school year!  



Bryan MacLean 

Acting PrincipalSCA 





Our 2022-23 Calendar of Events and Student Handbook are both available online to refer to throughout the year. Other events and meetings will be posted on and communicated through: SCA’s webpage, and SCA’s Facebook page.  ALERT through PowerSchool will be used to communicate to families throughout the year.  Please be sure to have contact information up to date in our system.   



Assessment and Evaluation 

Teachers plan, assess and evaluate student learning against Department of Education and Early Childhood Development expected learning outcomes.  Expected learning outcomes are statements describing what students are to know, show and do in each subject/course.
