Support Our Work



Sol: “I came to LightHouse because I had a lot of issues in high school and I thought being in this school might be a better environment for me. I found that, with less students, it’s easier to focus on your work.”

“In high school I really didn’t get along very well. People were rude, I felt bullied. Here I feel welcomed, it’s like a family.”

“If I were suggesting Lighthouse to someone I would tell them that it’s a no judgement zone, you can actually be yourself. You don’t have to worry about people always yelling at you. I really used to not care about school, I’d just stay sleeping when I was supposed to go to school.

This school makes me want to come to school!
