Sunlight Christian Academy



Sunlight Christian Academy is a ministry of Sunlight Community Church.  Back in 2004, two unwelcome guests, Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne, made landfall in Port St. Lucie. Many homes and businesses in our community were damaged, including a local secular preschool. Fortunately our church building was in good condition, so we offered to house the small preschool until their building was repaired.  We believe this was God's way of showing us we had the potential to open up our very own Christ-centered preschool in St. Lucie West.
We opened our doors in January 2006, with only 8 students.  We have been blessed beyond measure with children and families seeking a high-quality spiritual and academic education.  Today, we have two locations, St. Lucie West and Lake Worth, and we serve over 800 students from preschool through eighth grade. Our Upper School campus will be opening in January of 2024.

Our Mission

Sunlight Christian Academy shines the light of God’s Word into learning for children who bear his image and have a place in his care. We strive to provide a loving and safe environment in which children can explore God and His world from a distinctively Christian point of view.
At our school, you will discover an excellent and loving faculty that is well-educated and properly credentialed. We provide a healthy balance of teacher-directed and child-centered learning, through whole group, small group and individualized instruction, and according to measurable learning outcomes. Experiences are provided that meet each child's needs and stimulate learning in all developmental areas including physical, social, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual.
Each child is viewed as a unique person with an individual pattern and timing of growth and development. Different levels of ability, development, and learning styles are expected, accepted, and used to design appropriate activities. Interactions and activities are designed to develop children's positive feelings toward learning.
Sunlight Christian Academy is a mission school; families from all walks of life and religious backgrounds are welcome to become part of our school. 
Sunlight Christian Academy does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color or national or ethnic origin.
