The Lighthouse Academy (LHA) focused on five traits that not only set students apart from what they expect, but also exemplify what they set in themselves as they conduct their daily work of educating others. These five life skills serve students well and are an integral part of the education imparted by LHA. This kind of skill our students endure long after they finish their work with us.
