The Hybrid Model combines the best attributes of traditional schooling with the best attributes of homeschooling and integrates them into one model. The result is quality, cost-effective, college-preparatory education that gives parents more time for imparting their own faith and values to their children. In partnership with one another, parents and the school work together toward a mutual goal: to produce wholesome, competent, and virtuous followers of Christ who will change the world in their generation.
King's Light Christian Academy is dedicated to partnering with parents to encourage their children in their faith walk and raise up future disciples for Christ. We endeavor to operate with excellence, that brings glory to our Heavenly Father and makes a kingdom impact in our world.
We are growing with 9th grade - 12th grade for the 2023-2024 school year. Full time and part time students are welcome.
My name is Teresa Murnock. I am one of the founders of King's Light Christian Academy. I have an AS in Radiologic Sciences. I have been a Clinical Instructor at Culpeper Hospital for Radiography students and cross trained into MRI. I have a passion for designing and building as well. I owned and operated Heavenly Scent Cupcakes and Cakes for 7 years.
My time beyond my professional work is spent with my two children, my husband, friends and family. I enjoy reading, studying, hiking, kayaking, biking, and camping. I love the outdoors and taking in the wonder of our Father's creation.
My passion is for youth and children to know our heavenly Father, Savior and Holy Spirit. I have served in children's ministry and youth ministry for 13 years and also served on the church leadership team for 2 years. My gifts and talents have been utilized in organizing and running children/youth programs, classes and activities.
My hope is to see KLCA be a blessing to our local area and connect the family of God, building relationships and fostering support and encouragement to do His good and glorious work. We are here to partner with parents and help guide and educate with excellence the next generation that will be the salt and light in our world.
My name is Aniscia Bellusci and I am one of the founders of KLCA. I have had the privilege of working in the medical field for 10 plus years, first in nursing/ medical assistant, and then becoming a Medical Records Director for not only a mental health company but for a nursing home where I would also train other facilities about accurate record keeping, ICD-10, auditing and preparing for State inspections.
I put my career on the back burner to start homeschooling my children. I joined the local homeschooling support group where I was then a member of the board helping to bring resources to homeschoolers in the community. I’ve also helped to start a church in Warrenton, VA where I served on the board, was the youth director amongst other things
For the past 6 years I have been working with the mission group Hope For Appalachia, where now I’m a team lead and have the pleasure of bringing Gods good news to about 1500 school age children in Kentucky every year. I am also the Children’s Ministry Director at my church where I get to do what I love which is serving and teaching children and the youth about God’s love. In my spare time I enjoy being with family and friends, camping, and serving others.
I’m so excited to be a part of this great mission-KLCA, where I’m praying that we will instill a solid foundation for them to stand on in Gods truth so when they graduate and head out into the world their foundation will not be shaken.
My name is Neal Stuckenschneider. I hold a BA from St. Mary's College of Maryland as an English Literature major, with a minor in Studio Art. Out of college, I taught at Covenant Life School in Gaithersburg, MD for six years, teaching English, Art, PE, and a variety of electives. I'm returning to the classroom after some years in the special events and agricultural industries.
From leading church-based youth summer camps, teaching private music lessons and ESOL classes, and coaching baseball and cross-country, I've had broad experience with teaching and with youth.
"Those who lose their life, for me, will find it"; where better to lose it than in investing in others? The richness of shared experiences and discoveries are where I've always felt fullness - seeing others grasp hold of new skills and concepts and work creatively with them in ways I wouldn't. God's majesty is observable in these glimpses of enlightenment, and it is uniquely edifying when this takes place in community. We are called to be on the horizon of His creation, stretching forward into the future.
My name is Alecia Hamm and I have been teaching something for over 20 years. I started out my career in fire and EMS and quickly discovered my desire to help and teach others. In 2012, I transitioned to teaching high school science. I have taught in rural and urban schools and have worked with general education, Special Education, and English Language Learners.
I have a Master of Education from Mary Baldwin University and am licensed to teach high school and middle school science by the Virginia Department of Education. I am working on a Doctor of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on Instructional Technology from Liberty University.
I also teach EMS courses at Germanna Community College and volunteer as a Firefighter/Paramedic at Reva Volunteer Fire and Rescue.
I enjoy teaching at KLCA where I can develop a custom curriculum based on what students need and can spend more time on topics of interest without the same constraints that can come from large classes and large district schedules.
My name is Noah Wharton, and I am currently studying at Liberty University online and I am pursuing my Bachelor in Middle Education- Social Science. My goal is to graduate and become a middle or high school history teacher.
I finished up at Eastern View High School in the fall of 2018 and received my diploma in May of 2019. My experience working with youth started over a year ago when I began teaching Sunday school at my church. I usually have teenagers and the numbers vary from week to week. Occasionally, I teach Sunday school on Sunday evenings as well.
I had gone to church from time to time when I was little, but I started going regularly once I started my freshman year at Eastern View High School. I became a born again Christian when I was 16 years old. I like to think of my music as my ministry because it allows me to go and play music at different places and meet new people and share my faith.
Before Covid, I would play on Sundays at nursing homes such as Autumn Care in Madison or Culpeper Health and Rehab. Some personal hobbies of mine are fishing, playing music, and raising chickens. I believe that I will be a blessing at KLCA because I love history and I want to share that passion with others.
My name is Adam Forster. I hold both a Bachelor’s and Master’s in theology. Most of my career has been spent in video production, producing hundreds of community televisions programs, and working on several independent movie sets. In 2011 the Lord led me to begin producing faith-based shows and that’s when I fell in love with telling the stories of our awesome miracle working God. This led me going back to school and getting my degrees in theology.
I have worked with a lot of interns, many still in high school and enjoy teaching them the skills to work on and off camera and even begin a career in the industry. That said I am excited to be the Dean of Character Development and teach theology. I believe that learning about God is the single most important thing a person can do, it’s a process that should last a lifetime.
I enjoy walking my dogs, running my sawmill, and spending time with good friends and family, but most of all I love talking about God and how good he is.
Parents have the primary responsibility to guide their youth in faith, character development, and obedience. At KLCA we respect this role as the number one influence. KLCA instructors deliver biblically rooted course content to equip the youth to see the sovereignty of God in a broken world.
The parent partners with KLCA staff by keeping informed about their student's progress and by checking the Canvas parent portal. This is the communication hub for KLCA which provides full transparency as to the work their youth is asked to complete.
The goal is to raise well-prepared adults by the senior year. Parents are to help guide their youth on the satellite days as to how to best approach the schoolwork agenda in Canvas and manage their time wisely at home. Parents are not delivering the course content but are encouraged to dialog with their youth about their coursework.
