Lighthouse offers a traditional homeschooling program for students grades 1-12. In a traditional program the parent(s)/guardian(s) of the student make the choices regarding curriculum, delivery methods and assessment. The facilitators role is to support the parent through helping develop a program plan for the year, provide field trips and help to assess. A typical year includes two home visits in which the facilitator creates an assessment that is given to both the parent(s)/guardian(s) and the school to be placed in the students' file.
Students receive $835.40 in funding for the school year. Funding can be used to purchase resources and curriculum, pay for extra curricular events that pertain to students education (ie. swimming lessons being a part of physical education), and pay for attending part time classes at LCA.
Students are given the opportunity to attend LCA part time. It is $5 per day or $100 per course/year to attend. Typically students attend the options classes provided (art, music, pe) and continue with their core courses at home. Please contact the school office if this is something you would be interested in attending. It is beneficial to sign up to receive the school newsletter weekly as the homeschool newsletter only goes out monthly and the school newsletter can make you aware of any last minute activities. (You can sign up for this at the bottom of the main page of the LCA website)
Students are provided with the opportunity to attend school field trips and special events. Students are also involved with other homeschoolers in the area for activities and can develop relationships with other students their age.
Please feel free to contact our homeschool program facilitator Brittany Krook directly at (403) 877-1487 regarding any questions about the homeschooling program. Brittany's biography is also available under Staff Directory.
A Homeschooling Information Handbook is available.
