Dear Guardians/Parents & Friends, 

Summer Break is upon us! This is our last few weeks of the traditional 20-21 school year, and it is our priority to continue the mandate of educating your children even throughout the summer. Please be sure to secure your child’s seat for our six-week academic focus on all core competency courses with special emphasis on reading and math. The Summer Enrichment Program is from Monday, 06/21st through Friday, 07/30th from 8:00 AM-4:00 PM. Feel free to reach out to our school’s offices for more information. The First Day of school for the new 2021-2022 School year is Tuesday, September 7th, starting at 7:30 AM. There will be limited virtual offerings for families (be sure to attend our SCA Parent Orientation for more details-scheduled on Thursday, 08/26/21, and Friday, 08/27/21). 

After much prayer and negotiation, Sonshine Christian Academy is grateful to announce a two-campus school arrangement for next year! Children, grades PreK through the fifth will be housed at the New Journey Christian Ministries (NJCM) church located at 1763 Cleveland Ave. Columbus, Ohio 43211. Sixth through nineth graders will be situated at the 980 Lenore Ave. Columbus, OH 43224 building for next school year. The NJCM Campus is a beautiful 3-story building complete with over 15,000 square feet, full kitchen, fenced-in playground, sanctuary, and large classrooms ready for our children to learn in a safe and clean environment. We appreciate all the kindness that the Living Faith Apostolic Church has shown us over the past few years and praise the Father for making this next move a fruitful and productive one. The NJCM Campus will be open and ready for you to tour on Thursday, July 29th, and Friday, July 30th between 4:00-6:00 PM. The 980 Lenore Campus will be remodeled over the summer, after the Summer Enrichment Program ends, and the campus tour for the Lenore building will be open for viewing on Thursday August 12th, and Friday, August 13th from 4:00-6:00 PM. Please continue to pray for Sonshine as we endeavor to provide excellence in education with a Christ-Centered Focus. 

EdChoice has reopened for new applications to be submitted—there is still time to re-enroll your child before the new window closes. Please submit all 2021-2022 renewal applications (EdChoice, ECE Grant, and Private Pay Arrangements) to our offices to be sure your child has a seat for the next school year. EdChoice Scholarships are now available for ALL grade levels: Kindergarten through 9th for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year (please pick up your application today)! 

Thank you for your reading attention.

In the Service of the King,
