Serving 4 year olds - must be 4 by Sept. 1
Welcome to the VPK Program at Sonshine Christian Academy, where we embark on a journey of nurturing young minds for a purposeful impact in the world, all for the Glory of God. Our VPK experience is designed to be a stepping stone towards a future filled with academic readiness, character development, and a deep-rooted faith.
What is VPK?
VPK, or Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten, is an enriching early childhood program designed to prepare young learners for the exciting adventure of kindergarten. At Sonshine Christian Academy, our VPK program goes beyond traditional early education—it's a vibrant learning experience that focuses on academic readiness, character development, and spiritual growth.

SCA prepares our early learners (4-years-old) for successful transition to kindergarten and beyond. Classes run Monday through Thursday, 8:00am-11:45am and 12:30-4:15pm.
