Jacksonville Lighthouse Charter School College Preparatory 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 accepted 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.  We are fully accredited with the Arkansas Department of Education.

Wendell Scales Jr

I am originally from Carlisle, Arkansas but I am a graduate of the fighting Jackrabbits at Lonoke High School. Upon graduation I received my Associates in Business from Arkansas State University at Beebe. I finished my college career at Henderson State University, where I received a Bachelor's in Business Administration with an emphasis in Finance. While in college I had the opportunity to work in the Office of Admissions, where I assisted prospective students and parents with the admissions and financial aid process. This was a powerful experience during my colleges years and resulted in a career at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock( UA-LR). I worked as a Recruitment Coordinator and managed every high school in Pulaski County. I developed strong relationships with countless students, parents and high school
