Surfside Lighthouse is a comprehensive integrated administrative package.  It is not an old-style modular system - the functions of Lighthouse are tightly integrated and make moving from one part of the system to another as simple as a mere click of the mouse.  Bring the power of Surfside Lighthouse to bear on every task involved with managing your students - Database, Schedule, Report card, Attendance, Discipline, Transcript, Progress reports, Guidance, Teacher Access, Gradebook, and Internet Access.

Surfside Lighthouse is a Windows application designed to work with 32- and 64-bit Microsoft Windows 10/8/7, Vista, XP, and Windows Server platforms.  It runs on virtually all Windows PC's and functions on most popular local area networks - so Lighthouse will likely work with the equipment already installed at your school.  When you work with Lighthouse all of your student data resides on your local server.   There are no recurring per-student fees.  Our annual tech support plans are reasonably priced.  Software maintenance updates are available over the Internet through a "check for product updates" function that's built right into Lighthouse.
