Lawrence Academy Admissions
Welcome to LA: An independent high school in Groton, Mass.
Lawrence Academy is a coeducational independent boarding school for students in the 9th through 12th grades. Located in Groton, Massachusetts, our mission is to be highly skilled at recognizing our students for who they are, inspiring them to take responsibility for who they want to become and empowering them to take action for the greater good.
We are home to four hundred boarding and day students and pride ourselves on our warm, welcoming and compassionate culture. Our focus on individualized learning and empowerment is a cornerstone of our program and extends beyond the classroom to athletics, the arts, clubs, community service, and experiential learning including our Winterim Program which is a two-week intensive experiential learning program between our winter and spring terms.
Our diverse and highly committed faculty are skilled at “teaching for understanding” which requires innovative approaches to helping students learn in the way best suited to their particular needs. Through our daily advisory program, our faculty is able to assess each student’s interests, needs and passions and help them build pathways that suit their individual goals and aspirations.
Our goal is to see students grow in knowledge, confidence, and empathy so that they are able to make a meaningful contribution to the world once they leave our campus. Within Lawrence Academy's rigorous, but healthy learning environment, we prepare our students to graduate as well-developed individuals with a mission and a passion for giving back.
