Welcome to Lighthouse Development Center. Please keep up to date on all of our new announcements by checking our News page!
Lighthouse Development Center is a private tutoring center with three main programs: After School Program, Saturday Program, and Summer School Program. For years we have helped students excel at academics while having a good time as well.
Our After School Program covers a broad range of schools in the area. Our main sites are P.S. 1 – Alfred E. Smith, P.S. 124 – The Yung Wing School, and our tutoring office Lighthouse Development Center. We also accept students who do not attend these schools, and have made arrangements for them to join our After School Program as well. We currently have students from schools all around the area coming to our Lighthouse After School Program, including: P.S. 130 – Hernando De Soto, P.S. 42 – Benjamin Altman, and Transfiguration.
Our Saturday Enhancement Program has helped students achieve higher scores on their Statewide Tests in the past, and have now matched our curriculum to the new Common Core Exams. For a few hours each Saturday, students receive focused, individualized aid on exactly what they need in English and Math. We have recently started up our Robotics Program as well, for students in Grade 1 – 5 to help build independent problem solving skills and instill basic engineering principles in their young minds. For an hour after their tutoring, students get creative to design and program LEGO Mindstorms Robots to complete assigned tasks.
During the summer, our Summer Program keeps our students’ minds sharp and refreshed, while giving them a summer vacation where they can have fun. There are trips planned every few weeks, and daily activities to capture students’ interests, such as: Chess, Gym, Origami, Scientific Experiments/Demonstrations, and more!
