Sonrise Christian School is committed to teaching the heart as well as the mind.
We know that the task of shaping lives is a call of ultimate significance.
When one sees the potential inherent in a child, teaching becomes less of a profession and more a sacred call.
The heart of teaching must be to help children discover their own boundless capacity to think, feel, explore and understand.
The mission of Sonrise Christian School is to create an environment in which children can experience the love of Jesus as they grow in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.
At Sonrise Christian School we advocate a way of life based on the truths and values of the Christian faith as revealed in the New Testament.
Sonrise Christian School is accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International and by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
Sonrise is an incorporated not-for-profit organization with strong traditional links to the Churches of Christ.

School Reviews

This school offers a wonderful, authentic Christian foundation, both loving and academically strong. Our girls are very happy here (currently in preschool as well as 3rd grade). Teachers and staff encourage and nurture all the unique gifts children have to offer. They offer sports and extracurriculars like Art, Chess Club, Gymnastics, Dance, Music Lessons and more. All students use laptops and are well trained for success! Best investment we have made: we are very happy with our Sonrise Family!
