    Sanctuary is an excellent school who teach their students to be independent learners. The Christian base is a great foundation to build on.

    As a former student this school was one of my top choices for my child to attend for the first grade. The tuition is affordable and I love that it is a small student/teacher ratio. My son receives individual attention and I have seen him become more independent with his learning. He wants to read more and learn more. I am very impressed with this school and their focus on Christianity and being bible centered. The students start the day prayer and end it with prayer which is what we all need. I wish they went pass the 6th grade and hopefully they will soon. If you are looking for focus on Christianity and excellent focus on educating our future then you need give Sanctuary Christian Academy a try. You'll love it.

    My daughter attends Sanctuary Christian Academy and the staff and teachers are absolutely wonderful. They educate the children individually not collectively. Its's a very warm and loving environment. These teachers really care. I love Sanctuary Christian Academy. They also have a preschool Sanctuary Christian Preschool which is excellent as well.
