Founded by educators David and Nancy MacLaren, True Light Shines Academy works closely with students to facilitate their ability to “internalize” learning. When presented with new concepts, the brain internalizes best by receiving information by paying mindful attention—or engaging the child at a deeper level. Through the extensive use of math manipulatives, language arts through real literature, hands-on science, and history/social studies that are organized around engaging themes, we create a more productive learning environment that engages the brain and increases understanding.

True Light Shines Academy believes in involving the entire family in the learning process and aims to enrich the academic experience through experiential learning. Our program encompasses all subject areas while using instructional techniques and digitally-based learning tools designed to appeal to today’s technologically-savvy student.
