Lighthouse Community


The mission of Lighthouse Community Charter School is to prepare a diverse, K-12th grade student population for college and the career of their choice by equipping each child and youth with the skills, knowledge, and tools to become a self-motivated, competent, lifelong learner.

In order to achieve our mission, Lighthouse Community Charter School has committed to five priorities in its school design:

High Expectations for All Students

A Rigorous Curriculum

Serving the Whole Child

Family Involvement

Professional Learning Community

Founded by a small, committed group of teachers and parents, Lighthouse opened its doors in 2002 in downtown Oakland in a renovated storefront and served 92 students in grades Kindergarten and 6th grade. In that first year, the school employed 7 full time staff members. Twelve years and four addresses later, the school has grown to serve over 740 students in grades K – 12 supported and taught by 100 faculty and staff members.
