Wedgwood Lighthouse Academy Graduation

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) – Lighthouse Academy provides best-practice educational instruction, family support casework services, and clinical services to at-risk teens. The results? An innovative approach to education that is evidenced by:

  • Solution-based, not problem-focused thinking
  • Student-tailored curricula
  • A holistic, individualized approach to goal-setting with each student
  • Academic and personal guidance from a support team, including Master’s level school social workers

The Three R’s – Relationships, Rigor and Relevance

Students attending Lighthouse find a welcoming, non-intimidating setting where the hallmarks of relationships, rigor and relevance lead to success both in and out of school.

  • They ensure RELATIONSHIPS. Daily coaching and mentoring foster strong, open dialogue between students and staff that promotes achievement and self-esteem.
  • They ensure RIGOR. All students are given a challenging curriculum preparing them for college or employment.
  • They ensure RELEVANCE. Students find greater success when coursework clearly relates to their life goals.

Their ultimate aim is to help students aspire to their greatest potential beyond receiving a high school diploma – whether in military service, apprenticeships, technical training or college.
