A Lighthouse education imaginatively engages the whole child, head, heart and hand, in the creative and challenging act of learning. Our unique curriculum is designed to correspond to the evolving stages of intellectual, physical, social and emotional human development.
Art and writing are integrated throughout the curriculum to enhance academic instruction and to provide creative tools for individual expression. In-depth and project-based studies engage interest and imagination and contribute meaningful and concrete contexts for the exploration of abstract ideas and concepts. Information is conveyed through lesson, story, discussion, activity and experience to foster genuine understanding and inspire a love of learning.
Small, multi-age classes provide intimate and trusting settings while enabling teachers to individualize instruction.
The social environment of school is actively utilized to teach valuable lessons in empathy, cooperation, and conflict resolution. Through our academic and social curricula, we cultivate a child’s inherent intelligence, compassion and kindness and inspire a sense of responsibility to self, others, and the world.
