Lawrence Academy is an independent college preparatory school for students in grades Pre K through twelfth grade, and since it opened in 1968 the school has offered students a unique learning environment – one committed to creating an outstanding learning community and to shaping a bright future for every student. Students are challenged in an academic atmosphere that stimulates their creativity while exposing their special talents. Our faculty and staff respect and value student ideas, welcome the challenge of a difficult question, and incorporate both traditional and innovative approaches to teaching and learning.
The family-like atmosphere on campus is a place where children smile and laugh. It is a nurturing environment where brothers, sisters, and friends ride the bus together and greet each other in the halls during the school day. Parents are active on campus and play an integral part in supporting the school’s mission.
We value each student’s individuality at Lawrence Academy and invest in his/her academic and social development. Students come to Lawrence Academy from a seven-county radius, and with them come a diverse range of racial, ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds. The faculty and staff of Lawrence embrace that diversity and strive to create a welcoming environment in which each student feels secure and respected.
The best way to get to know us, of course, is to visit. We invite you, your child, and your family to schedule a tour and discover the advantage of the Lawrence Academy experience!
