The Sing-A-Rama Acappella Music Conference 2017 Committee chose the Normandie Christian School as the primary recipient for educational support. Sing-A-Rama Acappella Music Conference 2017 Committee will also support Southwestern Christian College in Terrell TX.
Normandie Christian School is a faith-based educational institution providing a safe academic environment and tools to build a well-rounded disciplined life. Normandie’s student enrollment ranges from preschool to grades K-6. In 2013, Normandie celebrated its 40th anniversary. Normandie school’s enrollment capacity is 230 students per year. The school has seen days of enrollment stability but has over the past six years experienced a decline in student enrollment to 64. The decline of student enrollment is due in part to increasing competition (charter and magnet schools), rising costs of tuition, and high unemployment rate. Other important factors have been a diminishing core of potential pupils and an overall decline in spiritual faith, yet Normandie continues to struggle to keep students and seeks to enroll new ones.
Southwestern Christian College, founded and sponsored by members of Churches of Christ, is accredited as a four-year (level II), educational college (limited to Bachelor's degree in Bible and Religious Education), with a two-year associate program in the liberal arts. Its purpose is to offer a holistic educational program that will motivate the student to value and achieve academic excellence within the context of commitment to moral and spiritual values; to assist students in making their transitions from high school to higher education on various levels; to assist students in preparation for varied vocations in life; to prepare future leaders for their distinct communities and the world at large.
Southwestern Christian College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, to award Associate and Bachelor level degrees. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Southwestern Christian College.
