My daughter is a 6th grader here at Torchlight. She’s in an all girls class. She has been a student at Torchlight Academy since kindergarten. I love, love the school. Would not consider putting her anywhere else. I do have two grandchildren and one will be 5 soon, and he will be at Torchlight as well. I love the versatility of Torchlight. I love the different languages that she’s learned and I absolutely love the drills because it has taught her a lot as well. The teaching has been great. It’s a great experience, a great environment, and a positive school. Come to Torchlight! You’ll love it!

I have two sons here. They’ve been here for three years. They love it! They have learned Spanish and Arabic. They’ve had a wonderful time here with their friends. My son’s in the 8th grade, so he is going to high school. My other son is going to the 7th grade but He really truly loved Torchlight. I thank Dr. McQueen, Thank You.
My two sons just graduated from Torchlight Academy. They have been at Torchlight since Kindergarten. When I was looking for a good school for one when he turned 5 years old, I was very worried about where to place him, until I ran into a lady who referred me to Torchlight Academy and have never had any regrets since they started Kindergarten. I just wish there were more schools like this from k-12, with so much passion to educate children and push them to excellence. We just want to thank their teachers from Kindergarten to 8th grade. I recently looked at one of my son's Math workbook. I was so amazed to see how one of the teachers engages the children in Math. She is a great asset to the School. The teachers at Torchlight are all great teachers that helped to educate and mold them to the boys that they are today. We also want to thank all the other staffs, Principals, and most importantly, the great leaders and founders of this school, Mr. Don McQueen and Dr. Cynthia McQueen.
