Our Mission

Lumen High School is a public charter school that is committed to empowering two generations by providing high academic standards, a specialized early learning center and wrap around supports to meet the layered needs of teen parents.

LHS is rooted in belonging, social justice and the empowerment of our staff, students and their children so that a students role as a parent will not be at odds with their role as a student.

Students grow as parents and scholars by learning essential skills needed in order to raise healthy children and through completion of coursework leading to graduation prepared for future goals and contribution to their communities.
