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.

Are you ready to learn more? We can’t wait to tell you all about how the Academy is different.

  • 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.

We did it again!For the second time this year, a couple of our students have been recognized by the New York Times for their clarity and creativity. The NYT recently held an essay contest asking "how to" perform a specific task. More than 2,200 teenagers submitted essays on how to do everything from fix a toilet to fight a kangaroo and our Will Pena (Runner up) and Vivian Olivera were selected (Honorable Mention). Will chose to describe how to shoot a 3-pointer while Vivian broke down the art of tying a shoe. Way to go, Will and Vivian! #nytimes #essaycontest #howto #bigtime #tyingashoe #3pointer ...
