The Lantern Difference

The Lantern Difference is based on an approach that nurturing minds includes more than offering instruction. Our students learn in a nurturing, joyous, engaging and empowering environment that combines the fun of summer camp with a research-based approach to student motivation and literacy.

Our approach infuses literacy into every component of learning and includes a range of experiences, interactions, and manipulations with listening, speaking, reading and writing designed to develop a love of reading. Our students learn to comprehend, analyze, and critically respond to what they read and hear. 

At Lantern, we don't focus merely on students providing the "correct" answers. It is the unique "how" our students are prepared to activate their hopes and dreams and to affect positive change and a significant impact on the community around them. At Lantern, learning is truly rigorous and fun!
