    Congratulations Lighthouse Christian Academy! You are an amazing educational institution. So small on the island but you stand BIG and PROUD among the largest schools in Dominica as one of the top six schools on the island performing excellence in Dominica’s Common Entrance.

    Your graduates continue to reflect LCA’s foundation and philosophy of excellence as they stand proud on their graduation day from high school as Valedictorians. They have rightfully earned their scholarships.

    Again you are showing excellence in the OECS Reading Competition. The LCA teachers obviously demonstrate commitment and devotion to their students unimaginable. Congratulations to Shanda Francis as she continues to proudly represent Dominica.

    A well-deserved school with hard working teachers and leaders.

    CONGRATULATIONS! We need all these positive news in DOMINICA. These children are the future of DOMINICA. You young children, keep up the good work, work harder, to the best of your ability, and the sky is the limit. I was just like you in days gone by. The roads ahead might be bumpy, because good things don’t come easy, without hard work nothing constructive and positive will happen. Don’t give up.

    I am all for education, in this world we are living right now, without education you cannot achieve much, unless you are born from a wealthy family. Even though someone is born from a wealthy family, and someone achieves anything on their own, they feel more proud of themselves, because they have earned whatever they have achieved.

    I love when children do well in school, especially when they come from humble beginnings.
    Please society encourage them, and help them bloom. Children are gifts from God.
