Helpful Information

Partnership with Merrimack College

Lawrence Academy partners with Merrimack College acting as a clinical site for the school's Athletic Training Master's Program. Each semester, Head Athletic Trainer April Buchheit oversees 1-2 graduate students from Merrimack College to work directly with the Sports Medicine group here at LA.

These Merrimack students gain direct, hands-on experience working with our staff here on campus to care for our student athletes everyday. Whether it's during practice days or game days, our Spartans always have a trained professional available to help them in the event a sports injury occurs.
