Whitestone Academy

Sonrise Christian School provides a context for Biblical transformation of young men and women lovingly created and called of God for the purpose of equipping them with a Christian world view both academically and spiritually as they pursue God's plan for their lives.
The Sonrise Christian School board of directors, administration, faculty, and staff are mindful of God's will that children are to be taught the content and practical applications of God's Word in every aspect of learning and in every activity of life.
We firmly believe that a Christian school is essential to the successful completion of these child-training responsibilities.
Our Mission is to assist parents in developing their children to be strong in mind, spirit, and body while equipping them to become servant leaders, using Christ as their example through teaching the principles of God's Holy Word, the Bible.
