You Are Like Salt and Light
“You are the light that shines for the world to see. You are like a city built on a hill that cannot be hidden. People don’t hide a lamp under a basket. They put it on a lamp stand. Then the light shines for everyone in the house. In the same way, you should be a light for other people. Live so that they will see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven.”
SALT Christian Academy is on the second floor of this building. It is deliberately located here in order to be closer to the more disadvantaged parts of the community.
The Salt And Light for Tomorrow Christian Academy
The Salt and Light for Tomorrow Christian Academy, Inc., or S.A.L.T. Christian Academy for brevity, is a non-stock, non-profit educational institution established in 2006. The school operates with appropriate government permits and licenses to provide basic education from pre-school through the 6th grade and is located in Caloocan City, Philippines, a part of Metro Manila.
The call to establish the school began in 2002 with a phone-snatching incident experienced by a local pastor’s wife along the Smokey Mountain in Tondo, Manila. The call to answer the need was reinforced in 2004 when Sam and Joyce Goodson, who had lived in the country for a number of years, communicated to her that God had impressed upon them a need to establish a school in the Philippines as well. Although they had been friends, she didn’t have the opportunity to share her unpleasant 2002 experience with the Goodson’s until this time. God was at work separately and beautifully!
S.A.L.T. Academy offers quality Christian education to low income families who would otherwise not be able to send their children to school. The fees are subsidized through the generosity of sponsors like you and the unselfish love and service to the Lord of Christian workers and educators. The school is also a venue of service for local volunteers and source of income for area Christian workers who want to serve the Lord.
At S.A.L.T. Christian Academy, the gospel is freely proclaimed and the Bible is the fundamental basis of the curriculum. The Academy utilizes the School of Tomorrow® system which provides for the development of the gifts, talents and abilities of each unique child. Each student is treated in a way that will expose and enhance those particular qualities. The purpose of their lives is amplified through the development of character values and solid Biblical teaching in a distinctively Christian environment.

Salt and Light for Tomorrow Christian Academy has proven its name, at least to my family. The search for the right Christian school started five years ago when my sister suggested S.A.L.T. Academy for my kids Allysa, Albert, and Aldrich. As parents, we always want the best for our kids and we’ve tried our hardest to give them the right education. Where else they gain their right perspective and spiritual inspiration but from a good Christian school. We’ll forever be in gratitude for being blessed to be a part of the S.A.L.T. family, and like the school’s teachers, administrators, pastor, and staff, we pray that we will also be a blessing to others.Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Escaran
