As a ministry of Sun & Shield Baptist Church, we endeavor to assist the families in our community with the education of their children by: providing a stimulating academic program; providing a distinctly Christ-centered environment; training students to have personal and social responsibility; and equipping students with spiritual integrity and moral philosophy.
Sun and Shield Christian Academy knows that you care for your children and want the best for them.
We care for children too, and that is why we offer a distinct educational alternative for your children.
Our school is an educational arm of the church; therefore, we use a Christ-centered curriculum in a Christian environment.
