Elementary School (Grades 1 – 5)

Students in Grades 1 – 5 in our Saturday Program will be at Lighthouse Development Center, while students in Pre-K and Kindergarten will be at Lighthouse Preschool for class.

Our Saturday Program for Grades 1 – 5 are focused on educational reinforcement at our student’s pace. Different students learn at different paces, and our teachers customize their curriculum to make sure all our students are able to stay on track. Every few weeks, Progress Reports are handed out to the students’ parents/guardians explaining your children’s progress.

Students here focus much more on academic gain and reinforcement than the younger students do. Students will be given lots of practice in the new Common Core testing system for New York State. In addition to the academics, many students sign up for our LEGO Robotics Program from 2PM – 3PM, where each weekend brings something new and exciting!
