Gospel Light Christian School was founded 38 years ago with the sole purpose of educating students mentally and spiritually.
The faculty works hard to ensure that the curriculum used is up-to-date and involves hands-on learning.
High school classes range from higher maths to English/literature, along with Spanish, Bible, drama, and art, among many others.
College prep classes are offered for those who desire a challenge, and a well-developed Fine Arts program is available for those who enjoy the arts.
Gospel Light also offers organizations in which one can excel aesthetically.

We transitioned from public school to Gospel Light for the 2021-2022 school year. After COVID and the remote learning at our public school at the time, I was extremely impressed with the curriculum. Having a PreK and 3rd grader this was super important to me after experiencing firsthand HOW and WHAT was being taught at our prev. school. After one year, I saw a huge change in my 3rd grader's confidence level and overall demeanor...not to mention the overall huge improvement in her grades!!! My youngest had not been in a socialized or learning environment during the Covid shutdowns...I was concerned about how far behind he may be and if he would be able to catch up. I was astonished by mid-year how much he grew socially and emotionally, he loved his class and teacher and developed a real love for learning about Jesus. My 3rd grader learned all the books of the bible and both children would recite weekly scriptures! The 2nd most important was the staff "vibe" the relationships between parents and administration and the only thing I can say although very cliche is that they have treated us like family and even this year the previous teachers are STILL involved with the students even though they have moved on to the next grade it's a real collaborative atmosphere. My daughter started, Volleyball in 3rd grade it was super affordable ( I have an older child who already graduated from public school and he was in sports and it was so costly!). She decided to do it again this Fall- year and now she is signing up for basketball, which is also available for the wee little ones. I love how responsibility, Integrity, teamwork, and biblical principles are tied in and enmeshed in all activities including sports. Service, acceptance, inclusion, and Love for ALL who walk through their doors is the core of Gospel Light. Every staff person I have dealt with has always made me feel that as a parent, my input, thoughts, and/or concerns were important and VALID, and even dealing with personal issues during these crazy times, I have been met with understanding, empathy, and love...as a family member...when I think of it I think this is exactly what fellowship, community, and Christianity are all about. I am not rich, wealthy, or even well off by any means. I did have to make some tough decisions and made certain sacrifices to afford this. However, I was very surprised by the rates; especially in comparison to other schools, considering class size, graduation, and college acceptance rates, extracurriculars, athletics, and field trips!! and the purpose to not only to help the community but help shape students into responsible citizens who will then go out into their communities and be of service. Don't forget to check out the Scholarships available through the state and now directly through the school-which is a brand new program and was specifically made to assist those that may not meet eligibility requirements for the NC state scholarship! I truly believe I made the best decision for my kids, their education, future, and overall well-being. -Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms(1 Peter 4:10).
