Family Interview

Each student applying for admission will have a one-time interview by Admission Committee members if a satisfactory application is received. This will allow the opportunity to answer any questions about Lighthouse and ensure it is the best educational fit for the family. An interview will be arranged by phone once a satisfactory application has been processed. Incomplete or unsatisfactory applications will not result in an interview. Families will receive a mailed response in seven to ten business days following the interview.


Entrance Testing

Entrance testing may be requested for new students enrolling in academic classes. Testing will determine placement in the appropriate courses according to math and language arts skills specific to our curriculum. Parents may supply copies of the student's ACT, SAT, PSAT, CAT, Stanford Achievement Test, or Iowa Basic Skills Test as a substitute for the placement testing if completed within 12 months prior to registration.

Diploma Planning

All full-time high-school students must undergo academic advising to establish a diploma plan. All students will receive confirmation from the registrar of their final class schedule. Upon confirmation of enrollment, the registration fee is due in full and a payment plan for tuition must be established. A Required Textbook/Materials list will be provided, along with purchasing information. Immunization records or the appropriate exemptions are also due.
