Our Mission Statement

Lighthouse Christian School Exists to glorify God by offering a Christ-centered, quality education that assists parents in training their children to be leaders and disciples of Jesus Christ.

Welcome From The Founder

Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about Lighthouse Christian School and Preschool. It is our commitment to offer a quality, Christ-centered education to our students in a safe and wholesome environment. We are excited about what God is doing here at Lighthouse Christian School and how He is building the leaders of tomorrow. We celebrate God’s goodness in allowing us to educate students in the Nashville area since 1979. As you seek God’s will, we hope that you will make the future education of your child a matter of daily prayer.
Founder and Executive Director of Compassionate Hope
Dr. Alfred G. Henson graduated with an agricultural engineering degree from The University of Tennessee and a Masters and Doctorate of Divinity from Liberty University.He founded Lighthouse Ministries in 1978 and served as the leading shepherd for 33 years. Lighthouse includes a number of local churches, a multinational school and a large camp for disadvantaged children. His leadership and service to the Antioch community have developed a number of highly diverse and effective charitable ministries that have helped thousands of refugees who have settled into this community and the poor and needy in Antioch/Nashville. Leaders on this team were key in the flood relief in Nashville in 2010. Presently he remains at Lighthouse as President. He is respected for his success in developing compassionate, highly effective and gifted leaders!As a gifted communicator, Al spends much of his time in Southeast Asia encouraging and developing leaders to care for “the wounded, abandoned, invisible and enslaved youth in these countries.”Through Al’s burden for these young ones, he founded the Compassionate Hope Foundation. For over 30 years, Al has served the nations through building partnerships with trustworthy, national servant leaders in Southeast Asia. His efforts have prepared leaders for the implementation of the projects of CHF’s Southeast Asia. Their focus is not only equipping but also serving to help rescue and prevent human trafficking of children and young people.One key factor for human trafficking in this area of Thailand and Southeast Asia is the lack of education often in tribal groups. Education either does not exist or stops at 6th grade. Al’s compassionate heart is leading the way in the building of CHF Villages of Hope, which includes a strong educational component. Al, along with the CHF team and supporting partners are believing together to change an entire region with these Villages of Hope. 


Lighthouse Preschool believes in creating a fun and loving learning environment where two, three and four-year old children begin to develop their skills that lay a Biblical foundation and academics for future success.

Elementary School

Lighthouse Christian Elementary School, K-6th grade, is a school that values academic excellence and a Christ-centered education. Students enjoy small classes, where they are known and loved by a faculty of dedicated teachers.

Middle School

The Middle School curriculum is designed to challenge students to reach their maximum potential. While the main focus is on core courses, such as English, Math, Science, History, and Bible, it also offers students a variety of elective choices.

High School

Our goal is for each student to graduate, fully prepared to pursue his/her future goals as a young adult and be spiritually equipped to go into the world with a strong Biblical worldview.
