Lighthouse Academies Promotes Learning Through an Arts-Infused Curriculum
The Arts are a part of everything we do at LHA. We incorporate visual arts, music, movement, and other forms of creative expression into our program, and expose our scholars to master artists and works of art.
With such an emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) in recent years, you may find yourself wondering why Lighthouse Academies follows an arts-infused program. Research has shown that arts infusion actually helps to better engage students. We apply core content knowledge to creative ways of learning, helping scholars better understand and retain the concepts they are learning.
Arts-infusion can also provide a different way to assess students’ critical thinking skills and their understanding of skills and concepts. We’ve seen just how successful an arts-infused program can be, as our students demonstrate the benefits of this program each day.
