Why LBA?

A Structured Education

Contrary to the graveyard of unsuccessful educational programs, including the “look say” approach to reading, whole language, and new math, the Christian school has been able to stand successfully on the following key principles: structured education is God-centered as well as authoritarian in its approach. Within these two principles, effective Scriptural discipline and godly character training can be incorporated into the Christian classroom. Students are required to sit up straight, to do their work, and to pay attention. Reading, writing, and arithmetic are taught in the light of God’s Word. Dignity of work and pride in America is encouraged; and honesty, integrity, and strong character are all traits to be sought after. Our mission is rooted in achieving a balance of challenging Mind, Body, and Spirit. As such, we structure our curricula and programming so students achieve an unparalleled balance – from the classroom to the field andfrom the studio to service.


Our faithful effort to provide a rigorous and challenging curriculum continues to empower students today. Our academic program employs a liberal arts curriculum rooted in classical education. From intellectual development to unparalleled college preparation, LBA students are given the tools to succeed both in the classroom and in life.


Our physical education and athletics requirements are focused on helping students develop an appreciation for leading a healthy lifestyle, as well as understanding the importance of teamwork and the benefits of sportsmanship. Through the pursuit of athletic excellence, our coaches focus on team success while building young men and women of good character.


Through our regular Chapel services and Bible curriculum, we nurture and develop faithful and compassionate young men and women who possess moral integrity and strong values.

The mission of Lighthouse Baptist Academy is to lead students to a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and to prepare college-bound students through an arduous program of academic excellence by Christ-centered teaching, application, and example.


Lighthouse Baptist Academy’s philosophy of education is based upon the Word of God. We believe that the heart of education is the education of the heart. As such, the primary objective and purpose of the School is to train the student in the way of life presented in the Scriptures while giving him a good general education.

Since the primary reason for the existence of the School is a spiritual ministry, evangelistic efforts are made to bring all students to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ so that the teaching of spiritual truths may have a firm foundation. This is followed by instruction in right thinking, good conduct, and clean living in the light of the principles of God’s Word.


Christian training can have a positive effect upon children’s attitudes, behavior, and scholastic excellence as has been testified by parents and teachers alike. It is only in a Christian school that

  • knowledge and human experience can be interpreted in light of God’s Word,
  • children are encouraged to pray, read the Bible, and memorize Scripture,
  • teachers have the right to help children understand and accept the New Testament —moral values and to educate them so that the practice of these Christian virtues becomes the rule and not the exception,
  • the total education of the child – spiritual, moral, mental, social, and physical–can take place, and
  • discipline is interpreted in light of New Testament teachings.
