About the Provider

Description: The purpose of Shining Light Baptist Academy is to educate and train the whole student: spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially. Because the Lord requires a vessel unto honor, guidelines for personal habits, definite dress codes, and proper leisure time activities are provided. The principle of self-discipline is the basis of our disciplinary structure. We believe the students who learn to discipline themselves will excel in life. Not only must a young person have purity of heart and holiness of life, but he must also have wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to serve the Lord in the plan God has for him. Therefore, God’s Word is integrated into the total educational program. The Bible is taught so that the student will develop the mind of Christ and learn to practice His conscious presence.

At Shining Light, students learn the right use of knowledge in the context of character with a heart for God and their fellow man.
