Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.

- John Dewey

About Light Shining Academy



As a school psychologist, I am passionate about education and its impact on our future generations. Our friendly staff provide powerful teaching experiences with the latest academic methods, allowing us to ensure a quality learning environment for our students that is both safe and progressive.

As parents and educators, we completely understand what it's like to not have enough time in the day to help children with their schoolwork, class projects, and lengthy research reports. Preparing for a test or an important exam – such as the SAT or ACT – can also be very time-consuming, especially for those parents or guardians with an already busy schedule.

Our staff have years of experiences in virtually every subject, as well as test preparation. We would be happy to meet you and your children. Feel free to visit our academy anytime! We offer FREE assessment tests and information about our programs, instructors, and pricing for classes. In addition, we will try our best to fit your schedule and needs.

Educating children has never been more important than it is today. The world is experiencing many changes – and we are committed to preparing children for successful futures.
