Main Campus Buildings


Each of Lawrence Academy’s nine dorms varies in size from eight to 44 residents, who live in single-, double-, or triple-occupancy rooms. Faculty members in residence and Spartan Leaders live alongside boarding students to offer support and care, creating an on-campus family of sorts for each boarder.
All residences are secured with locks on both their main doors and each room door. Bathrooms, TV rooms, and laundry rooms are common spaces in each dormitory.
