Lighthouse Christian Academy has been a Godsend to my son and our family. My son had been asked to leave another Christian school earlier in the year for disciplinary reasons. He was unmotivated about his education and generally unhappy about life in general. Fortunately our pastor recommended we try Lighthouse Christian Academy and even more fortunately our son was accepted. He fit in immediately and was more comfortable the first week at Lighthouse Christian than he had been after several years at his previous school. The faculty and administration welcomed and nurtured my son's emotional as well as his scholastic needs. They patiently worked on his weaknesses while gently reinforcing his strengths. As the school year progressed I watched in awe as my son blossomed and gained confidence not only scholastically but emotionally and socially as well. I saw his entire attitude toward learning and the importance of education change dramatically. His homeroom teacher became almost an additional family member who took such a sincere personal interest in my son's success words alone could never repay or adequately thank her for her commitment and devotion.
What I love about Lighthouse Christian School is that we are a "boutique" private school versus a "major department store" school. I love the personal attention and accessibility available from the school administrator and teaching staff. Small school size allows for custom tailoring of each child's personal and educational needs to best serve strengths and opportunities for growth. Teachers are personally invested creating model programs of Drama, Music, Sports, Advanced curriculum classes, Yoga and self esteem for girls. Our Navigator's room gives small group personalized instruction for students needing help in math or reading to bring to grade level. As a community of families with close personal ties serving our school, we also benefit from our Pink Church members support. Our campus is nestled between Lighthouse Point and Pompano Beach East of US1 at "The Pink Church", established in 1959. Reminiscent of days past, students and families ride walk, bike, skateboard, or travel by golf cart to school daily. On the same campus, Imagination Station Pre-School serves PK2-4 students who can then move seamlessly into Lighthouse Christian School serving K-8th grade.
A wonderful nurturing environment. We are blessed with an exceptional administrator and the school is filled with caring educators. LCS has state of the art facilities and progams for all learning levels. The curriculum is designed to prepare our children for the next steps in their education.
My son has been attending this school since Kindergarten, he will be graduating the 8th grade this May. The small class sizes and loving, nurturing environment are the very things that have allowed him to succeed. It takes a village to raise children and every single teacher, aid and even the principle helped to mold, encourage and lift his God loving soul higher than we ever imagined. I am forever indebted to their wisdom, guidance and love of not only my son but of me as well.
This school under the guidance of Mrs. O'Leary has made my daughter the student she is today. They truly "walk the walk" when it comes to Christian values and through this foundation the teachers at LCS invest in the students on a level that goes far beyond the norm.
Our daughter has been at LCS for 8 wonderful years. We feel that she is getting a great education and is surrounded by teachers and an administration that care about her. It is nice to send your child to school every day and know that they are in a loving and caring environment.
Our family came to Lighthouse Christian this year. Our son is in Kindergarten and our twins are in the preschool Imagination Station. We came from another well known private school where we felt there was just too much pressure on the children. When we came to tour Lighthouse Christian, as soon as we walked through the door we were sure we were in the right place. You can immediately feel the good energy and love! The principal, Rita O'Leary, is a true blessing! She is so involved in everything at the school and knows all of the children. Our children are excelling, as you could not find a better teaching staff who care so much for their students. Mrs. Minett has been an amazing Kindergarten teacher and our son loves school because of her. One night I asked our kindergarten son if he missed his other school where he attended for 3 years and he said no. He told me that at this school "he feels like he is a part of something". Lighthouse Christian was definitely the right choice for our family!
This school is a hidden treasure in the Lighthouse point/Pompano area. The teachers and administration are the best! The students and families are the best! The education and social environment are second to none. Just walk through the front doors and you will feel the difference.
LCS is a loving and caring school focused on the complete development of the individual. The school has done exceptionally well at meeting the needs of all students, identifying and delivering the right curriculum to students with diverse capabilities.
LCS is awesome! I am so thankful to have found such an exceptional school. My daughter is challenged and loves coming to school. The arts program is so wonderful. They offer special advanced learning and special resources for kids who need extra help. The teachers we have had so far are all fantastic. It is such a great school!
My daughter went to Lighthouse Christian for 7 years. She loved going to school and being involved. The teachers are wonderful and compassionate. What a great foundation for moving forward in academic and personal growth.
My school is Lighthouse Christian School. It is a very loving, nurturing school where the kids feel like a big family and work together. The staff is very encouraging and helpful. I would highly recommend this school. There is a balance of what children really need with the discipline in a loving way, guidance, patience. My son comes home happy everyday.
This is a wonderful elementary and middle school! The location east of Federal in Pompano Beach is convenient for east siders. Many local kids attend which is a great way to build community spirit. The teachers couldn't be more wonderful. There is a great balance of school work and cool extra-curriculars such as MindLab, cooking, art, theater and more. Small class sizes and bright classrooms make it all the better.
My daughter came to Lighthouse Christian School in the Eighth grade. She absolutely loves it. The children are all sweet and innocent she says. The teachers are warm and welcoming. She is doing fantastically with straight A's. My daughter is one that will not do well if she is not happy. That is enough for me! I highly reccommend Lighthouse Christian School.
My daughter went to Lighthouse Christian School from 2nd grade to 8th grade, it was the perfect school for her and our family.She had a wonderful experience and I will recommend this school to others.
Lighthouse Chrisian School is a great school with loving and caring teachers who will try their best for the succeed of theirs students.
The most welcoming school around. I can't say enough positive things about LCS! The teachers are wonderful and truly care about each and every kid. The principal is equally wonderful and has truly mastered the art of diplomacy. The school is small which makes it feel like one big family. Because LCS is so small it could really use a little financial help. The playground, teacher resources and more technology would be a great improvement!
LCS is a great school with a warm and nurturing atmosphere. There are so many wonderful families and it feels like a tight knit community within the school. The teachers are wonderful and the students are challenged to learn in a positive and caring environment.
My daughter has been at LCS for four years now,and she loves it.It is a close net school with small classes so each child gets enough attention to fulfill their potential.The staff at LCS is so warm and friendly and really care about each and every child, I definatly would recommend this school for other families because it is very safe and clean and up to date with technology of today.The families at LCS put in a lot of service hours to help to raise money to provide the school with money to keep the children learning at their potential,it really would be great for LCS to win this contest,they could really help the children with this money as this great school heads toward the future,
My daughter attended Imagination Station for Pre-K 4. The teachers and staff are truly compassionate and very attentive. This really helped my daughter's transition from never having attended any prior school, as she previously stayed at home with family, very smooth and easy. She felt comfortable and was always excited to go to school everyday from 8-2:30. The children receive personal attention and the staff goes above and beyond what is expected to make their learning experience fun, exciting and safe. We were so happy with the results that we decided to continue on to Lighthouse Christian School. I would recommend checking it out!!! Thank you to all!!! The Palmer family, Pompano Beach Fl.
