About Academy

Academy at the Lakes is a school community unlike any other. We believe that, to truly unwrap the potential in each child, the school experience must encompass far more than grades and college acceptance letters. At Academy, we instill values such as compassion, responsibility, and respect.

A community like Academy at the Lakes doesn’t happen by accident. We are intentional about our school’s culture – from the faculty we hire, to the students we enroll, to our advisory program, to the way our students, teachers, and administrators interact on a daily basis. A door held open, eye contact, and a sincere “thank you” are the norm here, not the exception.

  • When I started at Academy I was shy, reserved, timid, unsure, introverted, and so on. The person I am today, thanks to Academy, is the opposite. I’m confident, passionate, enthusiastic, resilient, strong, outgoing, and sharp.

  • Academy is and will always be a second home to me, and it has prepared me to go out into the world.
