Through its academic program, LA lives its mission to recognize students for who they are and inspire them to take responsibility for who they want to become.
Lawrence Academy’s faculty teach students how to think, not what to think: they’re focused on helping students develop essential skills that will help them be successful, both in learning and in life in general, not just learn facts. To help each and every student be successful, teachers are constantly assessing students’ interests and needs, and adapting to them, creating exceptional connections in the process.
"At my old school, we were always instructed to do things, we were never talked to. Here, we’re having a conversation with our teacher, and we’re using our knowledge and theirs and the kind of things we’re interested in to learn."
Emma Anane, Class of 2021
Lawrence Academy’s goal is to see students grow in knowledge, confidence, and empathy, and faculty act as guides in this process by adjusting to meet the needs of individuals. Students graduate as well-developed individuals who are resilient, respectful, curious, and engaged, with a passion-driven purpose and an ability to advocate for themselves, both in and outside of the classroom.
