About Us

Christian Worldview • Challenging Academics • Character Development • Community Involvement

Founded in 2000, Shining Light Baptist Academy and Preschool serves students from 6 weeks through grade 12, providing a quality education at a reasonable price.  Using traditional approach to education, SLBA’s students have excelled in a structured, academically challenging environment.  Scoring 1 1/2 to 3 years ahead of their public school peers, our students are taught through the widely-used A-Beka curriculum.  This program of study is academically and biblically sound.
Our academy is a member of the North Carolina Christian School Association. We have satisfactorily met the requirements of the North Carolina Department of Non-Public Education upon inspection. We offer the A-Beka curriculum for grades K2-12. Grades K2-6 have a limited open enrollment to families in the community who value our spiritual emphasis and desire a solid academic foundation for their children. Enrollment in grades 7-12 is open to those families who are members of churches of like precious faith.
We desire to send out into the world young people who will be lights in this night of spiritual darkness (Matthew 5:14-16).  The chief objective of our school is to prepare students to fulfill God’s will for their lives and for the possibility of full-time Christian service.  According to Matthew 9:37, “…the harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few;” and so our school strives to prepare students to be sent into the harvest field (John 4:35) and accomplish much to the glory of God.  “To the praise of the glory of his grace…” (Ephesians 1:6). At Shining Light, students learn the right use of knowledge in the context of character with a heart for God and their fellow man.
