Afternoon Programs

Girls' basketball game in the Stone Athletic Center.

Hobbies and talents play key roles in who we are. Lawrence Academy’s goal is to ignite in our students not just lifelong academic passions, but co-curricular ones, too.

Therefore, each week’s schedule includes space for afternoon activities: sports offerings and artistic endeavors that unite students with similar skills and goals. Students are required to join an athletic team or help create an artistic production — in both cases, to become part of a team working toward a common goal.

Arts

Lawrence Academy’s arts program is a welcoming, inclusive, and fertile environment that fosters curiosity and creativity. Students learn both the creative skills needed to express themselves and the technical skills needed to communicate their vision effectively, and they work with integrity, independence, and an open mind, developing an awareness of both themselves and the world around them.

"No matter what you're bringing in, we love it. We value it. You're going to find a place to make it work for you. And you're going to learn new things and find new ways and you're going to grow and we're going to watch you grow. We're going to support you."

Athletics

Spartan athletics promote healthy mind, body, and character, and provide opportunities for all student-athletes with varying skill levels to experience exercise, discipline, teamwork, perseverance, and personal growth. Student-athletes can compete intensely in their favorite sports or branch out and try an entirely new one, and those who want to be part of a team but aren’t necessarily interested in playing can take on the role of team manager / scorekeeper.
