Lighthouse Connections Academy Students

The teachers and staff of Lighthouse Connections Academy (LCA) online charter school understand that all students have differing needs, abilities, learning skills, and learning styles. That’s why a personalized learning plan is developed for each student in partnership with the students themselves, their parents or other Learning Coaches, and the teachers and education professionals.

As a result of including the child in this partnership, the program helps students build a positive attitude toward their education by assigning certain responsibilities to them and giving them some control over their online charter school experience. In higher grades, as students progress, Learning Coaches are still involved but become less “hands on,” and the students increase their individual and independent interaction with lessons and teachers. The personal attention from teachers and the guidance from a Learning Coach creates an environment for personal growth and a rewarding education at LCA’s online school in Michigan.
