Lighthouse Children's Home
Lighthouse Children's Home is a behavior modification facility located on 7771 Mahan Dr. Tallahassee, Florida 32309 .
The length of the program is between 12 and 16 months. It is for girls only.
According to their website it is a voluntary program.
The facility uses the Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.) workbook curriculum provided by School of Tomorrow . School of Tomorrow requries that just one person in an entire school be "certified" to use the curriculum. This certification is NOT from any state agency. It is issued by School of Tomorrow. This enables schools to use the curriculum without having any certified teachers by the State.
The girls get a monthly phonecall.
The only homevisit is a Christmas visit.
There are several on-campus visits from the parents.
According to their website "all things the Lighthouse offers to girls is regarded as a privilege that can be earned and lost" .
