About LCS » Who We Are

Who We Are

Lighthouse Christian School is a discipleship school, committed to the spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and emotional development of students. The purpose of the school is to provide a Biblically-integrated instructional program in a disciplined environment that encourages spiritual commitment and academic excellence.

Lighthouse is committed to the academic growth of each student.  Understanding that God has uniquely designed and equipped each of us accordingly, He has a plan for the lives of each Lighthouse student.  We desire to prepare students for what God is calling them to, whether college, career, or an entrepreneurial experience that exceeds any of our expectations.  The Lighthouse educational experience is student-formulated and teacher-facilitated, in a Christ-centered environment.  We want students to engage in their educational experience and collaborate with others to challenge their thinking, identify their strengths, and measure according to potential.
