My child has been enrolled at this school since K5 and is now a 6th grader. 7 years and I would never enroll her in another school. It was such a blessing when we found this school, as a Christian I was struggling with the thought of putting my child in public school. I attended public school as a child and know first hand the messages and behavior that are promoted by not only peers but school staff and administration also. Having a godly support system for our child other than family is so important to my wife and I, and a child spends over 1/3 of the day at school so this was a no-brainer for us. I know each of the staff personally and they are all great educators with two things in mind... the spiritual and academic advancement of the children under their care. I would not hesitate to recommend this school to anyone. Great job GLBA family!

Gospel Light Baptist Academy has been a very good school for our kids. We were one of those parents who really wanted to be involved with our kids school and volunteer for events and know the teachers well. It was hard to do that at the public school they were in so we looked for another path. The teachers and staff here are very responsive. They know our kids and the challenges they are facing. It is easy for us to attend functions, be involved and know how our kids are doing week by week.

We love it here and recommend it highly!
My daughter was at public school for kindergarten and 1st grade. She struggled and was not happy. I enrolled her in Gospel light for 2nd grade and she has blossomed. Mrs. Reardon has been a fantastic teacher. I am very happy with her progress not only in her academics, but with spiritual learning. She is a much happier student and is learning so much! I couldn't ask for a more caring, supportive, and loving school for my daughter.
