Following the devastation of the “Camp” Fire that swept through the towns of Paradise and Magalia, California, all schools were closed for nearly a year.  One victim of the fire was the Cornerstone Christian School.  Located at 6500 Clark Rd. in Paradise the First Baptist Church was no longer able to reconstruct the school staff, student body, or facilities.  Upward International Schools stepped in and opened the newly formed Lighthouse Academy.

Lighthouse Academy serves elementary students in grades Kindergarten – 5th Grade.. (Grades 6-12 are located at Pines Academy Campus in Magalia).  Meeting the needs of Christian families and fire survivors is extremely important to our staff and families. The emotional needs of each student and family are taken into consideration on a daily basis.  Each family finds itself in similar yet different circumstances.

The Parent-Student Handbook, The Calendar and The Registration Forms for 2020-2021 are posted for your information and convenience.

Registration materials can also be received by calling (530) 873-1412 or emailing us at             or clicking on “More Information” (link)

The Academy staff pledges:

* To nurture, love, and pray for each student

* To educate students for today’s challenges and tomorrow’s world

* To provide fair and consistent guidelines to instill self-discipline

* To lead them into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
