Accreditation

Lighthouse Christian Academy is registered with the Maryland State Department of Education as a church-exempt school. We are not required to follow the state-mandated curriculum or assessments, nor do we desire to, because we use Classical curriculum and methodology. 


However, we are a member of the Association of Classical and Christian Schools (ACCS), which has established standards and approved assessments for Classical schools. We are in the process of receiving accreditation by the ACCS, a process that takes five years to complete.


Our teachers are Classically trained and participate in ongoing continuing education, both in house and by attending conferences.
