Our Mission

LightHouse Holyoke is changing what school can be.
Our Founding Beliefs

Competency-Based
Education

Competency-based education is a learner-centered alternative to traditional letter grades. Each student’s unique set of strengths, needs, interests, goals, family and cultural background, and experiences are nurtured and leveraged to enable them to develop a host of research-based competencies using an array of personalized resources both inside and outside of LightHouse.

Our Approach

The LightHouse educational experience goes well beyond conventional practices and offers a personalized approach for young people aged 13 and older. We are supporting students to do much more than get by or get through it, but to thrive. 

LightHouse is a competency-based program, meaning we value learning and individual development over seat-time or arbitrary curriculum. We change the teacher-student relationship entirely to create a truly collaborative process that is founded in trust and mutual respect.
