Message from the President
Dear Parents, Partners, Friends and Supporters,
Thank you for your interest in learning more about LUMIN Schools. Leading this network of high-performing, Christ-centered schools is one of the greatest honors of my life. I have the privilege of being surrounded by caring and talented staff who lovingly inspire their students to be life-long learners.
If you learn nothing else about LUMIN Schools, please understand this, we know and believe in our hearts that each child is unique, yet EVERY child can succeed. It's our job to create a safe and nurturing environment where both children and teens find their voice, know their worth and understand the value of their education.
LUMIN Schools is a network, which means each campus has its own teachers and principals, but they also have the support of network staff who ensure we are offering the best curriculum, quality meal programs and support services like counseling, social work and special education. Using the power of our network, we can meet our scholars' needs beyond the academic to also include their social, emotional and spiritual needs.
Though we serve elementary and middle school students, we believe it is never too early to start preparing for college and a career. Establishing a college mindset starts in K4, and our focus on career exploration deepens with every grade.
When a scholar graduates from a LUMIN School, he/she will know the love of God and be both academically and socially prepared to take the next step toward a successful future.
In addition to our amazing staff, our work would not be possible without our parents who reinforce at home what their children are learning in class. It is in children's best interest when we all treat education like a partnership between home and school.
We also have a host of partners who provide funding, volunteerism and services to LUMIN's scholars, ensuring our future leaders have what they need to thrive.
God continues to bless LUMIN's work, and I am thankful to be part of this mission alongside the students, teachers, parents and partners who are at the heart of what we do.
President & CEO
