Online School Counselors Program Lighthouse Connections Academy
With Lighthouse Connections Academy (LCA), students connect with dedicated, licensed school counselors who can help them attain their full learning potential. These knowledgeable school counselors assist with academic goal setting, scheduling, and planning. They also provide support in personal and social development, as well as career and college planning, in order to prepare students for a bright future.
Helping Students Succeed in School and Life
The foundation of Lighthouse Connections Academy’s virtual school counseling program is the positive relationships we build with students and families. Counselors are easily accessible in person, by phone, and online to discuss concerns and goals.
To ensure that students can handle the variety of academic, personal, social, and other concerns that may inhibit their academic and life choices, our online school counselors have excellent credentials: master’s degrees and specialized developmental and educational psychology training experience.
LCA takes further strength from the continuing support of the Connections Academy national headquarters, which grants us access to a diverse and collaborative teaching network with school counselors throughout the United States. With these resources at our disposal, we enable counselors to offer individualized attention and national expertise to students and families alike.
