Indiana Lighthouse Academies are a part of a national network of nonprofit public charter schools focused on providing educational opportunities to underserved students who need access to a high-quality education. Each year, our team of 605 educators, principals, and support staff impact the lives of more than 6,000 scholars and families. We offer Indiana families a unique academic curriculum to scholars who face challenges in accessing life-changing opportunities that are possible only through educational equity.
We are committed educators on a mission to prepare scholars for success that extends beyond the classroom. Our approach to promoting curiosity and creativity, to building strong literacy and critical thinking skills, and to developing a strong work ethic ensures that our scholars are prepared for college, career, and life.
Lighthouse Academies opened its doors to Indiana families in 2005 at our Gary Lighthouse Charter School serving grades K-5. In 2013, we expanded to include three additional campuses: West Gary Lighthouse, Gary Lighthouse, and East Chicago Lighthouse. We’re currently preparing over 1,800 scholars to be the next generation of industry leaders, ground-breaking scientists and even agents of social change.
