Lawrence Academy recognizes you for who you are and inspires you to take responsibility for who you want to become. 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. The Lawrence Academy community is also an open one and a safe one. By both their peers and LA faculty and staff, students are encouraged to step out of their comfort zones within a support system that will applaud them when they succeed and encourage them to try again when they fail.
