Home Education

Lighthouse Christian Academy offers a traditional homeschooling program for students kindergarten- grade 12 in which parent(s)/guardian(s) of the student make the choices regarding curriculum, delivery methods and assessment. An Alberta Certified Teacher is assigned to support parents through helping develop a program plan for the year, providing educational opportunities and providing help to evaluate student progress. Two home visits are required during the school year. 

Students in grades 1-12 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 student’s education (ie. swimming lessons being a part of physical education) and pay for attending part time classes at LCA as well as educational workshops and field trips. *Please note that Kindergarten students do not receive funding but students are welcome to register with the school to take advantage of the educational opportunities and field trips. 

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. Students are also invited to attend Wednesday Chapel. 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 activities. Sign up on the LCA website home page. 

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.
