welcome to

Established in 2013, the mission of Lighthouse Academy commonwealth is to support families as they focus on an agency-based liberal arts education, also known as a leadership education.  We join together with families of like vision to provide an opportunity for shared educational experiences and a sense of community for our youth.  We honor the family as the center of learning and each student as a unique individual with a personal mission.  We provide scholar projects to help young adults and parents gain the vision, mission, abilities, skills, and knowledge required for freedom.  We aspire to develop young adults equipped with the knowledge and desire to make life decisions based on true principles.


Lighthouse Academy was founded by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and is open to families of any faith.  The principles of free conscience taught by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are our guide. These can be found in Doctrine and Covenants 134:1-5 and Article of Faith 11.  While scholars are welcome to, and sometimes even encouraged to, analyze and discuss their faith and traditions openly and respectfully in class, no single faith is catechized within Lighthouse Academy.


Membership in Lighthouse Academy is a family decision and commitment.  Families join the school rather than individual parents or students.  Our commonwealth brings together families with similar culture, common goals, and shared values.


Through the scholar projects, theatrical productions, field trips, science fairs, symposia, marketplace events, and service projects, we are an influence for good in our greater community. A leadership education facilitates individual character growth so that our members are inspired to effect positive change in their community spheres of influence.


At Lighthouse Academy we help build scholars through scholar projects and individual mentoring. We offer a project experience that assists each youth to increase in their vision, mission, abilities, skills, and knowledge. Through the principles of a leadership education, youth develop both character and scholarship while learning to own their education, ask hard questions, think for themselves, discern truth, and write and speak articulately and with confidence.

"Let your children be exposed to great minds, great ideas, everlasting truth, and those things which will build and motivate for good."
