LBA is a great school like any school its what the student puts in it. LBA has college prep courses to get in to college if your child is wiling to do the hard work. IF a student at LBA was able to get a full ride scholarship to a University I think any other student can as well with the commitment and support from the parent. Best thing about LBA is the value of the teachers and staff and Christian beliefs and standers they abide by is really whats important to me. Yes it may not be a traditionally school because the kids have to work on paces but its better then going to public school. Furthermore by experience some kids that come from public school to LBA when they test at LBA they are usually behind a grade or two. I think the curriculum at LBA is very challenging for the student and they have to pass with 80% anything under is not acceptable. This school is not for everyone! ;)
Its an awesome school with great teachers that care. Parents that care for their children to have a private school education. My children went there and now my grandchildren attend there. Thank You LBA and those that serve in the ministry of the school.
Lighthouse Baptist Academy is a poor school for academics. They use an "accelerated" learning where students attempt to a self-study and complete "paces." Most students who "graduate" do not complete their paces by the time graduation roles around. They have to complete summer school after they graduate in order to get their diploma. If you take your child out of this school and put them in a public school they will not send the transcripts until late in the year forcing your child to repeat the grade they just left the prior year from LBA. The school does not have credentialed teachers or a principal. The curriculum is outdated and is not up to state standards. Students usually perform 3-4 grade levels behind public school students. Don't waste your time or money.
