What Is Sonrise?
Sonrise Christian Academy is a non-denominational elementary Christian school.
We offer instruction to children from Junior Kindergarten to grade 6.
It is our ongoing goal to match or exceed the content and expectations of the Ontario Ministry of Education guidelines in all subject areas.
At Sonrise, all curriculum is taught from a Biblical worldview. The truth as found in God's word is the foundation in which all subjects are taught. As our Mission Statement states, we aim to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and integrity of heart needed to make a difference in the world for the kingdom of God.
What We Believe
The following basic Christian convictions represent the personal beliefs of each member of the Academy's staff and Board and is thereby the basis of our teaching.
Statement of Faith
We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe the Holy Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative and inerrant Word of God.
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His atoning death for the sins of the world, His bodily resurrection and His ascension to the right hand of God the Father and His future personal return to the world in power and glory.
We believe in the regenerative power of the Holy Spirit, for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature; and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only God's grace and through faith alone are we saved.
We believe in the biblical teaching regarding the resurrection of both the saved (the just) and the unsaved (the unjust), the saved to eternal life in fellowship with God, the unsaved to eternal separation from God.
We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit who enables the Christian to live a Godly life.
To provide a nurturing, Christ-centred learning environment, based on a relationship with God and the truths of His word, that allows children to grow to their full potential both academically and spiritually. Equipping these students through the guidance of the Holy Spirit with the knowledge, skills and integrity of heart needed to make a difference in the world for the Kingdom of God.
