The Greater Good Award

Each fall on Founders Day, and each spring on Cum Laude Day, the Greater Good Award is given to a current or former Spartan (respectively) who has used their education to benefit others. Moreover, the Greater Good Award honors those who understand that education is not an end in itself, nor is it just a means to a good job. The award honors those who, in their actions, have demonstrated an understanding of their responsibility to use their education for the greater good of humanity.

Serving the Community

Helping others is an ongoing act of community citizenship, not something you do once and consider it done. It's just that, which we hope to instill in our students during their time on campus. Learn more about Community Service at Lawrence Academy.
