Annual Education Report







Anchor Program

Please see this brochure for information regarding the Anchor Program at Lighthouse North.  

Lighthouse Academy North’s program welcomes refugees from all over the globe. We have students from Middle Asia, Central America and Africa. The students are as diverse as the languages they speak. Approximately one-third of our students speak one of the various Spanish dialects. The other two-thirds of our students speak a wide variety of languages such as Tigrinya, Arabic, French, Farsi, Swahili, Kinyarwanda, and other African languages. We work closely with the various agencies who support these students and their families..

The Anchor Program provides a variety of student support tools:

  • Accepts eligible credits earned in previous schools in U.S and other countries.
