About Us

Welcome to Pine Bluff Lighthouse Charter School!

Since 2011 Pine Bluff Lighthouse Charter School (PBLCS) has been putting the needs of scholars first. We are a tuition-free, open-enrollment charter school investing in the individual growth of every scholar. Our campus launched serving grades K-4 and has grown to now serve grades K-8. Located on the southeast side of Pine Bluff, we have extended our reach and programs to meet the needs of not only our scholars but also our community.

Our approach to developing our scholars as complete, well-rounded individuals means we offer children opportunities to develop academically and socially. Every year we look forward to hosting the Back to School Block Party and annual events such as science and math fairs, the Valentine’s Ball, and an art exhibit. Our scholars also have the opportunity to participate in clubs and extracurricular activities.

Pine Bluff Lighthouse Charter School receives public funding from federal and state resources. Managed by Lighthouse Academies, we operate under an open-enrollment charter approved by the Arkansas Department of Education.

There are approximately 270 students enrolled at our campus who we are proud to serve. More than 90% of our scholars identify as students of color and more than 90% are recipients of the Arkansas School Breakfast and Lunch Program. We are committed to opening doors to opportunities to underserved children whose families benefit from our approach to developing the total child.
