Who We Are
We are a national nonprofit network of charter schools. We are a growing community of approximately 6,000 students and families and approximately 650 teachers, principals and staff members. We are a community dedicated to ensuring a college education for a population of students who would otherwise face a future with limited opportunity. Our team will do whatever it takes to achieve our goal.
Why Does Lighthouse Academies Exist?
We exist because there is a staggering achievement gap in America today, resulting from lifetime income inequalities that significantly affect the quality of life for a disproportionate number of people of color. Only by breaking the cycle of poverty will we truly transform children’s lives.
How Are We Different?
LHA set out to distinguish itself by forming a family of schools that use an arts-infused, K-12 college prep program to generate excellent results while using only the funding provided by law. Our unique approach allows us to achieve more with the resources already allocated.
