Lighthouse Christian School

  • Lighthouse Christian School is a private christian school in Florida's First Coast area of Jacksonville and Orange Park.
  • Lighthouse Christian School is designed for the child who sometimes learns differently.
  • Many Christian Schools use "college prep" programs that are very fast paced.
  • This type of program can't be concerned about the student who falls behind.
  • Once a child is labeled as a failure in these programs it can have a very deep, long term, psychological impact on the child.
  • Many students that enroll with us have been given labels such as SLD (Specific Learning Disability), ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).
  • Your child may have been labeled as having one of these learning disabilities, but we believe there are learning differences not disabilities.
  • This type of student needs to learn differently so we teach them using the principles of Multiple Intelligence Theory.
  • This principle uses smaller classes where the teacher knows each child and recognizes the need to teach differently so the student learns differently.
  • Most students want to learn and can learn when you match their learning ability with the appropriate presentation and evaluation methods.
  • At Lighthouse Christian School we use this principle every day, with every student.
  • With many schools this type of student would only receive a "special diploma," but with our program the majority receive a standard high school diploma.
