How We Started

 

Lighthouse Christian Academy began when a group of parents, concerned with how far the government schools have strayed from Christian principles, decided to join forces. They wanted a school that was distinctively Christian, academically excellent, individualized, and mastery based.

After much prayer and research they concluded that the Accelerated Christian Education program would be the superior choice to serve as the foundation of learning at LCA.  ACE curriculum is a Biblically based educational program geared to meet the learning needs of individual children. This unique program consists of mastery-based curriculum and materials that are self-instructional, build Christian character, and are individually prescribed. Whether the student is a high achiever, a moderately paced learner, or a slow learner, our educational process begins at the exact level determined by the child’s ability. This individualization, makes it possible for each student to master the subject matter before moving on. Such mastery is the foundation upon which all future learning is built.
