Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our purpose at Sonshine Academy is to train children in the
knowledge of God and the Christian way of life and to
provide excellent care and education. Our program meets
the child's intellectual, physical, emotional, spiritual and
behavioral needs and teaches him/her the necessary skills
that will help him/her to be successful in school. Each
teacher realizes her responsibility to teach the children in a
Christian way and has a true concern for each child."
