What Our Community Has to Say

Sonshine is an excellent school with excellent staff! They always go above and beyond in everything they do. My son loves going there! I would highly recommend this school.


Sonshine definitely goes above and beyond for their students. My daughter will be going into the 4th grade and has attended Sonshine since preschool and she absolutely loves it.

My boys LOVE Sonshine Christian Academy. As a stay at home mom, my boys were treated like family as soon as they started and I came to know and trust all teachers as well as the staff. Sonshine Christian Academy will exceed your expectations from 2 years old through high school seniors. Go Eagles!

My grandson, Liam, graduated from this wonderful school yesterday. I couldn't be happier with the level of education, support and love that he received while a student there. He has benefited in immeasurable ways. What a level of comfort I had knowing that he was in their care.

Isaiah 40:31

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
