Welcome to Lighthouse Microschool: A Beacon for Bay Learning Space
Opening August 2020. Enrollment begins in July.
Offering a new paradigm in education for Bay County students.
Our motto: Placing the child at the center of their own educational adventure!
Lighthouse Microschool offers a new way to "do school" that places the student at the center of their own educational adventure by taking the concentration off of testing and constant assessment and instead EMPOWERING students to LEARN at their OWN PACE,
in the ways they learn the best, by focusing on their
INTERESTS and PASSIONS and encouraging CREATIVE and INDIVIDUALIZED ways of displaying progress.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” ~ Nelson Mandela
“Our job is obvious: we need to get out of the way, shine a light, and empower a new generation to teach itself and to go further and faster than any generation ever has.” ~Seth Godin.
"Do not train children to learning by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their mind, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each." Plato.
"Personalized learning is not what is done to the learner or about tailoring the learning. It is about helping each learner to identify and develop the skills they need to support and enhance their own learning so that agency and self-advocacy can be realized." Kathleen McClaskey
"Learning happens in the minds and souls, not in the databases of multiple-choice tests." Sir Ken Robinson
