Lighthouse Christian Academy

Lighthouse Christian Academy is here as a lighthouse to the working families of Key West and the Lower Florida Keys. Child care is obviously an important choice. Our biggest desire is that the child development that’s available here from infant to Pre-K, is a true educational experience.

Early Childhood Education Is Important….

There has been a lot said about starting our children early in education.  Even basics like creative play and interaction with others is often best learned in a school environment.“The wisest possible path to genuine public education ‘reform’ is this: Invest early to give children the best possible start in school and in life.” ~ Jerry Scarborough, Superintendent of Schools of Suwannee County, Florida
