Our faith is the basis for everything we do at our school.
As a Christian, you want your child to grow up knowing God and learning about Him at home, at school, and at church. This is one of the big reasons why you want your child to attend a Christian academy. At Shining Light Academy, we take our role in your child’s academic, physical, and spiritual development seriously, and our faith impacts nearly every aspect of our school.
What is our faith based upon? We believe in God and the inspiration of scripture. We also believe in the blood of the Atonement, Christ’s bodily resurrection, and his personal and imminent return.
When your child attends our school, they will learn in a Christ-focused environment, and Biblical teachings will be interwoven into every discipline. Our goal is to create the next generation of believers and provide our students with a strong educational foundation and exceptional critical thinking skills. We want our students to be able to discern right from wrong, and we do this by teaching our students to think for themselves and learn how to find truth in the world around us.
If you would like to know about our faith in further detail and how it affects our school and educational mission, we would be happy to talk to you. Contact us today to speak with a member of our staff or to schedule a tour of our Christian academy in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Common Questions About Our Faith
One of the big reasons why many parents choose to enroll their children at a Christian school is because of the exposure to the Christian teachings and ways of thinking. Our faith has a significant impact on how we run our school, and we have answered a few questions about it below.
How do I decide if a Christian school is a better fit than a public school?
Many families are finding that societal trends are moving away from traditional values upheld in the Word of God. As a result, public school may not be a one-size-fits-all bubble anymore. Our goal is to provide a legitimate substitute for families by offering Christian values and standards without sacrificing in academics, athletics, and arts.
What is your faith based upon?
Our faith is based upon a belief in God and His inspired Word. We believe He was crucified, buried, and has risen again; that salvation from sin is by grace through faith; and that His personal return is imminent.
How do you maintain a Christ-centered environment at your school?
One of the main ways we do this by weaving Biblical teachings into every discipline. In addition to their core subjects, students will also take a Bible class and attend weekly chapel throughout their entire academic career at our school. Finally, we place a huge emphasis on teachers developing rapport with students and connecting to them as not just academic alliances, but spiritual mentors.
How do you teach students to find truth?
First of all, by exposing students to the truth through preaching and teaching the Word of God, but also by equipping them with exceptional critical thinking skills. Ultimately, we want our students to be able to discern right from wrong by evaluating the world through the lens of scripture and their personal walk with God.
