Lighthouse Christian School Middle School Program
The middle school program focuses on providing an engaging environment where students can begin to think analytically about the world they live in….where they can learn what a biblical relationship looks like….where they can excel in academics and explore fine arts, technology and other subjects in greater depth. It is a place where students are safe, where friendships are developed for life, where a Biblical world view is established and where students learn to defend that world view. Middle school at Lighthouse Christian School is a place where students are motivated to learn, to grow, to challenge secular thought, to serve, to have fun and to excel.
High Academic Standards
At Lighthouse Christian Middle School students are challenged to push for knowledge, to learn self discipline in their academic studies and to strive for more understanding of this world God created. The academic standards are high, but teachers are available to support those who need extra time and attention in the learning process. Over the years, standardized testing has proven that Lighthouse students average in the top 15th percentile in the nation on the Stanford Achievement Test (SAT). More important, they are taught to think critically and to challenge secular thought. A biblical world view pervades every subject taught.
At Lighthouse Christian School, we believe that every child has potential for leadership. Whether a student will lead in his home, church or community, all students will sometime lead – and we want them to be prepared. Students learn the qualities of a leader, the types of leaders, how to lead in their God-given gifts and much more. In addition, each 8th grader will accomplish practical projects as they practice the skills they learn.
Student council gives students elected to office very practical opportunites to learn to lead as they plan for community service, chapel, various activities and special student events.
The main focus at Lighthouse Christian School is on spiritual development. First, we pray that every child chooses a faith relationship with Jesus Christ. Then we pray that each will continue to grow in their relationship with God. Bible classes are held daily; weekly chapels give opportunity for students to apply their faith. Students are encouraged to demonstrate leadership by participating on the worship team and by taking responsibility for a chapel program.
In continuation with the character program begun in the K-5 program, middle school students continue to learn what it means to be a Champion in Christ through the development of a different character quality each month.
Students have the option of participating in a very active sports program which includes: Cross country, volleyball, soccer, basketball, fast pitch, baseball, and track. In addition, after school clubs offer students opportunity to learn to play chess, get in shape, serve and learn other skills depending on the parent volunteers and what they bring to the program.
