Boarding and day. Artists and athletes. Local, national, and international hometowns. In these ways, and so many more, the Lawrence Academy community is a diverse one.
The Lawrence Academy community is also an open one and a safe one. By both their peers and LA faculty and staff, students are encouraged to step out of their comfort zones within a support system that will applaud them when they succeed and encourage them to try again when they fail.
In all parts of school life, Lawrence Academy encourages the voices of each and every person on campus. As a whole, the community aims to acknowledge each individual’s unique qualities and perspectives, regardless of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, ability, religious affiliation, and political views.
"Step onto Lawrence Academy's campus and it will not take you long to see and feel what makes our school different. Yes, you will be warmly welcomed; that is our way. But more importantly, from your first visit to your departure following graduation, you are respected for who you are and who you can become." Andrew Healy, Dean of Students
