About us

Lighthouse Academy

Lighthouse Academy (LA) is the educational arm of the Great Lighthouse Foundation, Inc. which offers affordable yet advanced, solid Christian curriculum for preschool and elementary levels.

Lighthouse Academy

Founded by the late Dr. Ben O. Abante in 1992 to address the need to train the youth of the urban poor area of Barangay Tatalon, LA received its recognition from the Department of Education (DepEd) in 1996 and is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International-Asia (ACSI-Asia) since 2002.

LA stands for Lighthouse Academy, but aside from the acronym of the school, LA means “Laging Angat” which literally means “Always Ahead.” Our mission is to produce elementary graduates with passion for excellence who are God-fearing, well-rounded individuals and productive members of their homes and larger community.

For more than 2 decades, LA has been committed to providing quality education of high moral standards and excellence, by providing a stimulating atmosphere that is conducive to students’ learning and participation.

We have produced students who passed known Science High Schools in Metro Manila, as well as foremost universities in the country such as The University of the Philippines.

Great Lighthouse Academy Scholarship Support Program

Lighthouse Academy (LA) also provides scholarship grants through the Great Lighthouse Academy Scholarship Support Program (GLASS).

GLASS envisions empowering the youth to be productive members of the society, by making quality education accessible to underprivileged but deserving elementary-age children from challenged communities.

The goal of GLASS is to cover the tuition fees of qualified pre-school and elementary students of Lighthouse Academy; while miscellaneous fees will be paid for by the parents. This scholarship is open to children of families with annual income of PhP 120,000 or less (PhP 10,000 monthly income or less). A committee was established to screen and assess the applicants.
