Boarding Student Life
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.
Lawrence Academy’s student body is evenly split between boarding and day students, so even on weekends and after hours, the elm tree-shaded hillside is bustling. Boarders are encouraged to make campus, both their dorm room and the common areas, their home away from home.
While living on campus, LA students are able to venture off campus (with proper permission, of course) with classmates, family members, and friends, and guests are always welcome on campus as well. Weekend activities — shopping shuttles, group trips to local attractions, and on-campus events — abound, and laundry, mail, and religious services are available in addition to a dining hall that is open for all meals.

"We go out of our way to make sure that the students have the opportunity to do things that they find enjoyable. We think that it’s healthy and really important. It's an essential part of community building as well. Honestly, a lot of energy is put into creating moments that encourage students to spend time together so that they develop friendships and a sense of family here on campus."Andrew Healy, Dean of Students
