Head of School’s Welcome

I am often asked “What makes Academy at the Lakes different from other schools?” The answer is actually quite simple: it lies in our community’s deep sense of connectedness.
From PreK3 through senior year of high school, our students feel connected to their school. They experience the power that comes from knowing how very much they matter to the daily life and work of the community they animate.
At Academy at the Lakes, all students have countless opportunities — opportunities to lead and to serve, to speak and to be heard, to make a difference, and to feel and be important. Our inclusive school culture comes from our genuine commitment to forming meaningful relationships with each student and each family.
Students at Academy at the Lakes build confidence and poise through their involvement in their school. They develop a true understanding of their own individual capabilities. They discover their authentic selves.
We hope the words and images in this website spark your curiosity about our school. Please come and sample it for yourself. We are confident that a visit will convince you that an Academy at the Lakes experience for your family is an investment that will bring phenomenal returns, both today and for the many tomorrows to come.
