Our full day program begins at 6:30am and ends at 6:00pm. We have breakfast, lunch and snack time daily. Parents can choose part-time days, full-time days, or a combination of both. Our Early Childhood program well prepares students for our Kindergarten and Elementary program.

Students learn scripture, how to work with their peers, develop fine motor skills, and enjoy hands-on learning adventures.

Learning about God's character and biblical truths are central components of our Early Childhood programs. This helps and shapes a biblical worldview in our students.

Enriching activities are explored by our students every day. They learn social skills on the playground in free and structured play time.

We love our parent community. We care for and love the most precious treasure of your heart.

Middle School

The transitional middle school years are vitally important in the development of every young person. With the beginning of adolescence, students need security and encouragement that Shining Light Baptist Academy offers. Academically, students will be challenged and prepared for senior high school by taking courses that are intense, yet attainable for the average student.


High School
