Our Mission

The Lighthouse Schools is an innovative Islamic boarding school for boys that harmoniously merges the strengths of traditional and online learning for students in grades 6-12.  Recognizing the uniqueness of each learner, our educational model leverages the flexibility of online education and combines it with the structure of traditional learning environments, using our unique 3M (Mentor, Motivate, Monitor) model. By partnering with Arizona State University, we utilize a world-renowned online curriculum, further supported by AI tools, while our dedicated faculty mentors guide students’ academic and personal development.

Our Vision

Our vision is to create a community of learners who are committed to academic excellence, Islamic faith-based character-building, entrepreneurship, and leadership. Our boarding school and residential life offer an environment that fosters spiritual growth, personal development, and academic achievement. We aspire to cultivate leaders who are not only successful in their professional endeavors but also embody a strong moral compass and an unwavering commitment to serving others. Our graduates will be the change-makers who make a positive impact on society and inspire others to follow in their footsteps.
