About our Curriculum


Our goal is to get to know your child’s strengths and weaknesses academically so we can tailor their instruction to meet their needs.  For new students, a brief informal assessment is conducted.  If a child excels in a specific subject, we will consider moving that child up a grade level for that subject.  If a child needs remediation in a specific subject, we will consider moving that child down a grade level for that subject.  Our goal is to provide instruction at a level each child can understand and move forward successfully.


We Make Learning fun with a Christian Worldview

The Light Academy is different from your typical school  .  . . . we thrive on “out of the box” thinking, project-based instruction, sharing resources, using technology, and making learning fun,  all with a Christian worldview!  Check out our “Light” points to learn more about us!
