Lantern Learning provides out-of-school services for students in grades 3-8. Our project based learning offerings can be implemented as a five week summer camp, or a semester long after school program. At Lantern, student curiosity drives rigorous learning in an authentic and community-supported way.

Our Pillars

Student Voice & Choice

At Lantern, students are in the driver's seat of their own learning. We encourage them to take an active role in their education, allowing them to select the project they would like to pursue and take ownership of the results. Students interact with mentors, decision-makers, and staff to receive feedback that will help them continue to build their knowledge and experience.

Student Voice & Choice

Literacy Driven

Our experienced staff and mentors are committed to helping our students develop the skills they need to succeed in the real world. Through our innovative curriculum, literacy is embedded in every lesson.  It is designed to push students to read, write and speak at professional levels as they pitch ideas and receive approval for their projects. 

Literacy Driven

Authentic & Real world challenges

We create real-world projects that students can work on with adults, that teach them valuable skills and give them the opportunity to present their work publicly.
Students are encouraged to be creative and inquisitive. Our projects provide students with the opportunity to explore, to think critically, and to make a difference in the world.

Authentic & REAL World Challenges

Community Partnerships

We value building strong partnerships with the local community. Through our community partnerships, students are granted the opportunity to interact with members of the community and gain insight from their expertise. These partnerships provide students with the chance to think through challenges at an authentically professional level.
