The future of Lamplighter is bright for every member of our community.

This campaign elevates Lamplighter's physical plant and buildings to the level of our programming and propels us to an even brighter future. Thank you to everyone for your generosity and support of this historic campaign in the life of our beloved school. Click below to learn more about Lamplighter's story and the exciting plans ahead.

Using the 2018 Strategic Plan: Enhancing, Strengthening, and Illuminating the Lamplighter Experience as a guidepost, the Board of Trustees thought long and hard about the students and their needs now and into the future. Our students are the centerpiece of all plans and provide the inspiration and motivation to move forward with the campaign. Additions to and investments in the campus are necessary to enhance learning through innovative and integrated curriculum and programs.

The Bright Future fundraising campaign allows us not only to expand and enrich our beautiful campus with the addition of the Alumni & Student Services Center, Theater Arts Exploration Lab, new and renovated classrooms, and a new playground, but also to increase our endowment for faculty and students to improve our curriculum.
