The Lighthouse Guild for the Gifted, affectionally called "LG," is an innovative Christian based program structure is designed to grow students into morally sound leaders. At this time we operate as an educational organization specializing in Educational Summer Programs and youth center programming, but, we aspire to one day open an institute dedicated to the complete growth of scholars.
What do we mean by "complete growth?"
We train students to solve global issues through an interdisciplinary problem-solving curriculum that takes into account all 9 forms of intelligence as described by Howard Gardner. Linguistic and Mathematic intelligence are important but so is interpersonal intelligence, connection with nature, physical intelligence, spatial awareness, musical intelligence and the others. Our physical area of focus is Greater Houston; however, we continue to engineer virtual and hybrid programs available throughout the US and beyond.
Our Mission: To equip young scholars with Christian values and the ability to solve world issues
