Parents

Parents and Students in class together during Parents' Weekend 2018.
Spring Social 2017
The Lawrence Academy community comprises not only current students and alumni, and our faculty and staff, but also their loved ones. When a student matriculates at Lawrence Academy, their families do, too.

Whether your child is a boarding student or a day student, and whether you and your family live nearby or far from campus, we want you to get involved.

Parents of current students are automatically members of the Lawrence Academy Parents’ Association, which is led by an executive board of approximately 30 families; however, parents are also encouraged to sign up for one or more of the many volunteer opportunities available each year, both to meet other parents and stay in touch with what’s going on at LA.
