NEW SCHOOL PLAYGROUND

Help us build a playground!

Madison – one of the best places to live in the United States. You've raised your family here, built your business here, it's where you worship, volunteer, and give back. But it's not the best place to live for all of us. Children who are poor, especially kids of color, often fail to achieve the same success at school as children from more well off families. Children who fail in school too often end up trapped with limited choices and are at risk to all sorts of negative influences.


WHEN OUR KIDS FAIL, SO DOES OUR COMMUNITY. Consider the unrealized potential and lost opportunity. But there's hope for our future, and it's called Lighthouse Christian School. Our school provides exceptional quality education accessible to all students. With tenacity and humility, we are tackling racial disparities and the student achievement gap one child at a time. Despite a long waiting list of deserving children, our current building will not accommodate any more students. WITH YOUR HELP, WE CAN CHANGE FUTURES!

THROUGH THE NAVIGATING BRIGHTER FUTURES CAMPAIGN, you can make a real and lasting difference in the lives of children. You can turn the tide and help close our community's achievement gap. Lighthouse Christian School is renovating a new school facility at 6400 Schroeder Road. When our program is fully expanded in 2022, the new space will allow 3X the current number of students to navigate brighter futures.  There is currently no playground equipment at the new site.  Our kids need a place to play, grow socially and stay active. Help us get a playground in by the start of the school year -- September 5th, 2017!
