Welcome to Sunshine Learning Miami

Thank you for your interest in Sunshine Learning Miami! Our philosophy is to tailor a program that suits the student and not the other way around, we refer to that as customized education. Since the beginning, we have been offering our students a stress free environment and hands-on education. We believe that every child is uniquely gifted and learns in a distinct way, so we ensure to adapt the curricula to every specific need.

We teach our students to be curious, self-confident, and independent learners. We strive to help them flourish within a small setup along with multi-grade interaction where they will feel part of a family. Most importantly, we seek to develop in each of them a desire to learn, have a deep multicultural understanding, form strong collaborative skills, and devote themselves to the local community and the world.

At Sunshine Learning Miami we look forward to welcoming you to be part of our family and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any question.

The school district will determine what public school options are available to the student after receiving the request. A student who exercises this choice will need to reestablish eligibility by being in a school year’s October and February student survey before being eligible again for the private school option of the McKay Scholarship.

The tuition and fees at Sunshine Learning Miami exceeds the amount of Step up scholarships, consequently the parents are responsible for additional costs and fees.
