Welcome to LA
One of the oldest independent, private high schools in the United States, Lawrence Academy, founded in 1793, is situated on 135 acres in picturesque Groton, Massachusetts. Just 35 miles northwest of Boston, in the heart of New England, LA is home to 400 students, over half of whom live on campus in 10 student residences.
Each day, our bustling community comes alive as our vibrant population of learners and educators delves into a rigorous academic curriculum, an award-winning arts program, championship athletics, and an expansive array of extracurricular offerings — each an important facet of a comprehensive college preparatory experience.
Let our office be your resource as you enter the independent school admissions process. In the meantime, be sure to read our viewbook, fill out our online inquiry form, and give us a call to set up a visit. We look forward to meeting you.
