Earlier this year, Higher Learning Christian Academy opened in St. Petersburg. The academy accepts students from 3 years old for preschool, up through fourth grade.
Headed by Shirlel Harper, the school’s main goal is to provide a quality education, along with teaching Christian values, to students of all demographics. At the moment, the school has four students and four staff members, but growth is in the future.
“We’re definitely looking to make an impact and stay here for the children of the future,” said Harper.
The academy, in Gulfport’s Tangerine neighborhood, accepts various scholarships, including ELC and Florida School Readiness.
“We’re very excited to help the community grow as we grow with them,” said Harper.
