The Lake Academy (TLA) was established to assist students in grades 7-12 who have not achieved academic success in a traditional setting. While students may continue to participate in their home school district’s activities, at TLA alternative approaches to guidance, discipline, and academics are utilized to provide an individualized educational experience. Community support services, employment, and volunteer opportunities help our students accomplish realistic goals.
The Lake Academy’s mission is to provide students with positive social and academic life skills.
- Be Respectful and Kind
- Be Responsible
- Be Honest and Trustworthy
- Learning is Essential
- Live in the Present
- Safety - Safe and Drug-Free School
At the heart of The Lake Academy’s educational philosophy is the importance of home, school, and community partnerships. Parents/guardians are crucial members of the educational team and their active participation in meetings and during intervention planning is sought on a consistent basis. Collaboration with community members and organizations provides The Lake Academy students with educational opportunities above and beyond those opportunities that can be provided within the classroom setting alone.
