Welcome to Integrity Educational Services
While Integrity Educational Services (IES) is the educational services provider for Hope Academy of West Michigan and Lighthouse Academy, being a part of the IES team is more than that. We care about the students whom we serve and genuinely believe that every student can succeed.
We focus on student growth and achievement, guided by our core values. To us, how we achieve the results is as important as the results. To this end, we hold ourselves responsible to living into our values each and everyday: Respect, Inclusiveness, Integrity, Persistence, Growth Mindset, Collaboration/Teamwork and Excellence.
Throughout this community, at-risk teens who are expelled, court involved, or who have special education needs face a bleak and uncertain future in our traditional educational system. Now in Kent County, there is a beacon of hope: Lighthouse Academy. Learn More about Lighthouse Academy

News & Announcements
We were fortunate enough to receive 45 nomination forms for the IES Values Leader Program last month. The following employees were voted as the March 2021 Values Leaders:
- Jessica Darwin (Hope Academy of West Michigan)
- Diane Voitek (Lighthouse Academy South Campus)
Team members can share a nomination form to nominate a team member for the May 2021 Values Leader contest.
As West Michigan residents gradually resume “normal” life, we have also resumed our "Pies and Praise” tradition this school year at some of our locations. "Pies and Praise” is just one of the fun ways we recognize our team and show them our appreciation for their hard work. Throughout the year, we schedule a date at each campus to celebrate our team members for a few minutes after school with delicious pies and personal words of appreciation.
To show appreciation for staff this Valentine's Day, IES brought cookies and cards to each campus to make the weekend a little sweeter and to share some love!
As with everything in 2020, the holidays feel a little different amid a global pandemic. At IES, we consider this time of year a great opportunity to give thanks to team members for their resilience in 2020, to provide a sense of hope in the midst of uncertainty and to bring all staff together.
