SSC Worship Academy

Cultivating A Generation Worshippers – Psalm 145:3-4

SSC Worship Academy exists to train young artists, cultivating a generation of worshippers who minister for Jesus Christ. Students will have the opportunity to learn foundational worship concepts while also receiving instruction in the arts from an expert artist! We offer training in music theory, band, vocals, and dance. Young artists will learn how to work as a team and create an atmosphere of corporate worship based on the worship concepts they will discover.

There is a fee of $150 for the first semester, which includes one course. Each additional course is $50. Enrolment for the second semester is $100. We are able to offer varying payment arrangements to accommodate family finances. If you have any questions, contact Jeremy Kitchen at
