Transforming Lives in Arkansas
Lighthouse Academies serves the children of Arkansas at four campuses. Each of our schools follows a unique, arts-infused program emphasizing social development and designed to give our scholars an edge as they continue their post-secondary studies and go on to establish their livelihoods and careers.
Capital City Lighthouse Charter School (K-8)
Our Capital City campus opened in 2015 and features a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) education model and free transportation for scholars in kindergarten through eighth grade. We meet the needs of learners at all levels through our Gifted and Talented and Extended Learning (after school tutoring) programs. We encourage our scholars to nurture their creativity through participation in the fine and visual arts with classes such as dance, choir, ceramics, and more. Our extracurricular activities provide scholars with additional enrichment and leadership opportunities. We believe education is a family matter and sponsor many annual events in addition to monthly Family Saturdays.
Jacksonville Lighthouse Charter School (K-12)
Jacksonville Lighthouse Charter School opened its doors in 2009. Our K–12 campus offers a Gifted and Talented program and the Work Hard, Get Smart Extended Learning Opportunities (ELO) program. Scholars at Jacksonville Lighthouse may select from extracurricular activities and multiple course offerings, such as vocal and instrumental music arts and STEM-Robotics, to develop physically, creatively, and analytically. Our International Pen Pal Program is a school-wide favorite, as well as annual family events, including the Fall Festival, Talent Showcase, and Math and Literacy Night.
Jacksonville Lighthouse Charter School - Flightline Upper Academy (5-8)
Located on the Little Rock Air Force Base in Jacksonville, Arkansas, the Flightline Upper Academy serves fifth through eighth grade students from both military and non-military families. Since opening our doors in 2011, JLCS Flightline Upper Academy has earned the top ranking for academic schools in Jacksonville. Scholars benefit from our robust academic program, including the Gifted and Talented program, science fair, and math and literacy nights. Participation in extracurricular activities provides our scholars with many opportunities to develop physically, emotionally, and as leaders. We have plenty of activities for our scholars to choose from, including track, basketball, dance, volleyball, yearbook, and student council.
Pine Bluff Lighthouse Charter School (K-8)
At Pine Bluff, we have proudly served K–8 students since 2011. Every scholar is important to us, and this care is reflected in the individualized learning plans we carefully develop for each student. Our curriculum emphasizes writing and developing critical thinking skills. 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.
