COURSE OF STUDY
From the day of its foundation in 1992, the School has offered educational services to both Russian and International students, providing the best university-bound education. From the very beginning, our school has adhered to the principle of ensuring quality in all aspects - academics, spiritual growth, and character building.
Russian and international students may receive their education in either the Russian National Program or ACE (School of Tomorrow Program), or both programs depending on their level of preparation and abilities.
The Russian National program is taught according to the state requirements of the Russian Federation and is supervised by the Department of Education of Moscow. All students who successfully complete all required courses for the 11-year course of study receive the Russian State Diploma upon graduation. The language of instruction is Russian.
The School of Tomorrow program (ACE) is an authentic American curriculum for grades K-12. Students get placement based on the results of Diagnostic tests in five core subjects: Math, English, Social Studies, Science, and Word Building. Students who successfully complete all the prescribed courses receive their High School Diplomas upon graduation.The program is individualized. It allows every student to progress according to their abilities.
All students of both programs study not only core curriculum subjects, but also participate in extracurricular activities, student clubs, Performing Arts, sports events, and various Student Leadership programs.
DUAL ENROLLMENT PROGRAM
The school offers the opportunity to receive a High School Diploma for all graduating students. They can enroll in a Dual Enrollment program with the Lighthouse Christian Academy.
Lighthouse Christian Academy has instituted a Dual Enrollment Program for the dual enrollment and academic validation of students attending schools using the full scope and sequence of the A.C.E. curriculum. The Academy has full accreditation status as a distance-education provider by Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS), National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA), and Accreditation International (AI). AI is a recognized member in good standing with the Council on Occupational Education (COE) and the International Council for Education.
LCA desires to extend the benefits of this accreditation to students of ISOT. Enrolled students are required to use the A.C.E. curriculum exclusively for all subjects in which PACEs are available.

- Earning an accredited transcript and diploma
