WHAT DOES 'SMOKING FOR JESUS' MEAN?
Great question! Our ministry's and school's name comes from the Bible in Revelations 3:16.
"So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth."
So we are RED HOT, SMOKIN', ON FIRE FOR JESUS!
IS SFJMCS ACCREDITED?
SFJMCS is not accredited or affiliated with any accreditation agency during the 2023-24 school year. Because we do hold Model Status under the educational standards of Accelerated Christian Education, we are able to offer accreditation through Lighthouse Christian Academy's (LCA) Dual-enrollment program.
Parents with students in levels K-8 have the option of enrolling in those students in LCA at an additional cost to my SFJMCS tuition and fees.
Dual- enrollment for students in levels 9-12 in LCA is mandatory. The additional cost to is included in yearly registration fees.
