Framingham, MA, August 4, 2009 – Lighthouse Academies, Inc. opens their first two high schools this month: Gary Lighthouse Charter School College Prep Academy in Gary, IN, and Indianapolis Lighthouse Charter School College Prep Academy in Indianapolis, IN. Each CPA will open with approximately 50 ninth grade students, most of which have been part of the Lighthouse school already and will continue their preparation for college at the CPA as part of the class of 2013. Their ninth grade year started with a Gateway week prior to the start of school where students learned about the school culture and graduation requirements, got to know one another and their teachers and completed community service. The rigorous, standards-based instructional program is unique as it is arts-infused and includes personalized learning and internships and community service. Students will receive more time on instruction, laptops that will become their own upon their first college acceptance letter, and college application support through a full-time transition counselor.
