Philosophy

Lighthouse Academy provides a first school experience in a faith-centered environment that nurtures in each child a love for learning.  This developmental program will encourage the growth of each child’s God-given talents and abilities.  The curriculum will include social interaction, intellectual stimulation, spiritual direction, physical development, and emotional growth.  Lighthouse Academy believes that school’s ultimate responsibility is to provide experiences that promote lifelong learning.


Goals

- To provide all children with a developmentally appropriate education program while communicating Christ’s love daily to your child in a natural learning situation.

- To provide a classroom environment where all children receive instruction that is appropriate to their individual needs within a small group setting.

- To provide a classroom environment where appropriate peer interactions are taught and encouraged between children.

- To teach and encourage the children God’s Word (the teachings in the Bible) and be an example to others.

- To individualize instruction, teaching and building upon each child’s unique strengths.

 

Curriculum

It is our philosophy and goal to create an atmosphere that encourages social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth.  We believe in developing the child as a whole.  That is why we have chosen The A Beka Curriculum.  We use this curriculum exclusively for our phonics and scripture programs.  This allows our teachers to impart their creativity, experiences, and themes into the curriculum to ensure a hands-on developmental experience inside the classroom. In additon, this curriculum meets or exceeds Nevada’s State Standards.  We feel this program will provide each child with an environment that is fun and supportive, while preparing your child for success in school and beyond.  Any curriculum offered by Lighthouse Academy can be reviewed at any time.
