We encourage our students to reach new academic heights.
At Shining Light Academy, students who attend our school are exposed to our strong academic program, which encourages personal responsibility and achievement. In elementary, we primarily use the Abeka curriculum, which focuses on teaching in a practical way, with a strong emphasis on intensive phonics for basic reading. In middle and high school, we predominantly teach from the Bob Jones Press curriculum, favoring its attention to critical thinking and encouragement of creativity.
Our teachers do a great job of focusing on academics and developing critical thinking skills. Our teachers rely on the Abeka and Bob Jones Press curricula to help our students learn important, useful, and interesting ideas and concepts. With this foundation, our students learn how to think for themselves and present ideas in a sensible, interesting way.
We also rely on traditional methods of teaching subject matter. Students are exposed to a variety of subjects, including reading, grammar, vocabulary, literature, spelling, handwriting, mathematics, science, history, and more. All students also attend a Bible class where they learn universal truths necessary for encouraging critical thinking.
Our academics set our Greensboro, North Carolina Christian academy apart. Not only do we provide our students with a strong educational foundation, but they also exceed national and state standardized testing scores on a regular basis.
As a parent, you want to give your child the best educational experience possible while preparing them for life to come. We will support you in this journey and help your child reach their academic goals. For more information about our academics and the curriculum we use, contact us today.
