Lighthouse Academy- Waalkes

Lighthouse Academy - Waalkes is partnered with the Kent County Juvenile Detention Center and provides a whole child approach to education for young adults inside the facilities.

Students may choose to continue their enrollment at Lighthouse Academy upon release through Lighthouse Academy - The Port, a divergent program set up to meet the flexibility and demands of a non-traditional learner. This program runs virtually during afterschool hours.
