The LightHouse

The LightHouse after-school program has provided academics and enrichment opportunities to economically disadvantaged students for over 30 years.

 

Our motto to each student served is, “Once a LightHouse Kid, Always a LightHouse Kid.”

Our Model

For the 2020-2021 school year, The LightHouse will operate its fall after-school program virtually in six schools (Creswell, J.S. Clark and Westwood Elementary Schools, Broadmoor Stem Academy, Fair Park Middle School, and Booker T. Washington High School), in addition to our two community sites, the Downtown LightHouse and the Bossier City LightHouse.

Students will receive assistance with homework. They will also participate in academic and enrichment activities including: ELA, math, STEM, financial literacy, physical fitness, character education, cooking, yoga, drama, and more, many provided through partnerships with other community organizations.

There is no such thing as no homework! – Site Coordinator, the LightHouse.
