The Lighthouse is a beacon of hope for students, grades five through twelve, with diverse abilities and learning styles who would benefit from a smaller teacher to pupil ratio, more effective instructional techniques, and individualized programs to match each student's current abilities and learning potential.

At The Lighthouse students with potential and skills, who face daily frustration and challenge, can have an educational home.

Our mission is to pave the way for a fulfilling future by providing a customized learning program focusing on individual needs, learning styles, and goals. We strive to provide a learning environment where children are excited to learn, and feel capable and empowered.

Our focus is to bridge gaps by strengthening learning as well as academic weaknesses. We help students develop winning strategies for learning as well as their personal lives.

The result is children who are prepared for reaching their full potential as skilled, resilient, individuals, equipped for their future.

This may be the turning point in your child's educational, social, and emotional growth.

The Lighthouse is ideal for:

  • Diverse learners whose focus is strengthening learning weaknesses in order to succeed academically.
  • Students needing more effective teaching methods in a smaller learning environment.
  • Students with language-based disabilities, reading and writing weaknesses, learning disabilities, ADD, and other diagnoses.
  • Students who are not thriving in their current setting because of their unique learning needs.

The Lighthouse strives to build personal relationships with students and their families; we are dedicated to leading students toward personal and learning success. We provide a nurturing, supportive environment with high expectations for student achievement and opportunities for students to see themselves as capable learners. The result is individuals who have skills and feel competent. We also recognize the importance of helping support the social and developmental needs of each student as part of our academic program.

The Lighthouse Program is academic and learning focused - not community-based or therapeutic. It is successful for diverse learners whose focus is strengthening learning weaknesses in order to succeed academically.

Our class size averages 6-8 students with a degreed, experienced instructor. Our classroom and school environment is structured yet flexible.
