The Lighthouse program is designed to provide structure, education, and spiritual guidance in an environment of Christian love. Our program is a combination of Christian counselling, school, athletics, extra-curricular activities, assigned work responsibilities, scheduled family visits, music training and performance, and community involvement. Please follow the links below for more specific information and call us if you have any more questions.
The Lighthouse program is based on our C.O.R.E. beliefs:
- C - Christ.
- As a Christian home this is our primary emphasis. The Lord alone is the great changer of hearts, lives, and attitudes. The girls attend church every week as well as chapel services and devotion times both in the school and dorm. The girls are required to memorize a number of Scriptures every month. All of the counseling for the girls is done from a pastoral and spiritual perspective. This spiritual emphasis also includes a ministry of singing (gospel music and hymns only). The girls travel and sing all year throughout Florida, Georgia, and Alabama. Through the years the Lighthouse has made several recordings.
- O - Obedience
- The Lighthouse program focuses constantly on the issues of being respectful and obedient to authority - . We teach obedience is doing exactly what you are told to do, when you are told to do it, the way you are told to do it, with your best effort, and with the right heart attitude.
- R - Responsibility
- In addition to their schooling, all of the girls are given jobs and chores to do every morning, evening, and even in the school. All of their job tasks are evaluated and scored and their levels of privilege or restriction are directly affected by their work performance. This means ACCOUNTABILITY for their actions as well as their attitude.
- E - Education
- The girls attend school on campus. Our school uses both the online Florida Virtual School (and accredited curriculum) and the A.C.E. (Accelerated Christian Education) curriculum, with whom we have achieved "Quality" status and accreditation. We also uses individual tutoring.. Many of our girls have graduated from the Lighthouse and gone on to college. The Lighthouse also has a college scholarship program.
