A Lesson is not always in a traditional classroom setting.....

Monument Lighthouse College Prep Academy

At Lighthouse College Preparatory Academies (CPA), we make an extraordinary promise: if a scholar graduates from our College Prep Academy, he/she will be admitted to a four year college or university.  We keep that promise, through rigorous standards and an arts-infused curriculum that prepares students academically, socially and culturally for success in college – and beyond.
