This fall, Lighthouse Academy (LA) will be opening a new site to service students on the North side of Grand Rapids. This is an exciting opportunity to help a population of at-risk students that Lighthouse has been unable to reach before. Since Lighthouse opened its doors 7 years ago, several agencies located on the North end of town have expressed the need for an education model like Lighthouse to be available and located closer to their clients.
This second campus will be designed after the original Lighthouse Academy, utilizing many of the same successful program components and therapeutic teaching approach. The school will serve expelled and court-placed students, as well as students from the Kent County Juvenile Court, Kent Fields and Day treatment and DA Blodgett/St. John's homes.
The new campus will be located near the corner of Leonard and Fuller in an existing building that will only require some renovations to configure the space into classrooms. More information will be available as the new school develops!
