What is a Lighthouse School?

Originally ten Baltimore County schools, including Mays Chapel, were chosen to be Lighthouse Schools.  Lighthouse Schools lead the way for the BCPS S.T.A.T. initiative. The Lighthouse Schools were the first in the system to receive individual digital learning devices for students; implement one-to-one personalized and blended learning; and create an innovative, comprehensive digital learning culture. The Lighthouse program has now expanded in to middle and high school as well and Lighthouse Schools continue to serve as model demonstration sites.


The ten original Lighthouse Elementary Schools included:  Chase, Church Lane, Edmondson Heights, Fort Garrison, Halstead, Hawthorne, Joppa View, Lansdowne, Rodgers Forge, and Mays Chapel.
