Welcome to Lawrence Academy!
Lawrence Academy is a coeducational, college preparatory independent day school located in Merry Hill, NC. The school serves students in grades Pre K – 12, and currently draws those students from a seven-county area.

Utilizing traditional pedagogy based on liberal arts and humanities, supplemented with a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) curriculum, the faculty and staff present a balanced educational experience that develops in each student a path to life-long learning.
