Leadership Preparation

Project-based and experiential learning are encouraged in all classrooms across our academy, and enrichment courses are no exception. We believe in the importance of teaching the whole person, including like skills that go beyond the academic and stretch into the future of a person's life, preparing each student to stand out as a leader no matter what his or her career. For this reason, we have made some of our life skills courses required during a student's enrollment at Lamplighter Academy. You will notice that the life skills courses are heavily discounted to make sure every family can afford these vital courses. All required courses are marked with an asterisk and only one is necessary per 2 semesters. Most courses are one day a week, with the exception of Math and Spanish which are better learned daily, thus have a two-day per week class period.

All prices listed are monthly.
