Community Based Instruction

The students at Lighthouse Education Center work on a variety of activities to get ready for post-high school. One activity the students participate in is called "Career Cruising". When using this web-based program, students can explore different career interests and what types of classes and training they need to prepare for them.

Another resource available to our students is Michigan Rehabilitative Services (MRS). A representative from MRS meets with different high school students throughout the school year to help prepare them for work and/or training after graduation. MRS is a great resource for our students, whether or not they are college-bound.

Finally, as part of the IEP process for students age 16 and older, a transition plan is created. Teachers explore students' needs and aspirations to determine which activities are imperative now to help them later.

The staff at LEC are committed to help students achieve while at our school so they can continue their success when they go back to their home districts or after graduation.
