What makes a school great? Is it test scores? Championships? College acceptances? We have all that. But what makes us great is our track record of growing good people. That’s what we do. Our students learn and grow in a culture that teaches empathy and virtue and then brings those ideas to life through action. It’s not about high-stakes testing. It’s about endowing children with the skills that will lead to a great life. The true purpose of school is to prepare young people for the world – to help them understand how to lead lives that are happy, productive, and good. That’s what we do at Academy at the Lakes. And we’ve been doing it for 25 years.

– Head of School, Mr. Heller
