STAFFORD — It is an interesting time upon us here in New Jersey and throughout the nation in the arena of childhood education. The Covid-19 pandemic has made it quite obvious that most students will not be attending school five days a week this fall. 

There is one area school that satisfies Governor Murphy's criteria to have students attend five days per week. 

Lighthouse Christian Academy which is located at 400 Beach Avenue in Manahawkin is accepting enrollment application from Age 3 preschool up to eighth grade for September.
