The primary goal of St. Lawrence Academy is the pursuit of academic excellence combined with the cultivation of Christian virtue in the lives of its students.

School Notes:

There are many factors that set St. Lawrence Academy apart: Our faculty shares a common vision, goals, and methodology within a diversity of background and training. The small student body and low teacher-to-pupil ratio afford individual attention for all students. Each student is encouraged to develop into the unique person God created him or her to be. Consistent discipline provides a safe, friendly, nurturing atmosphere and a serious learning environment. Parent involvement is strongly encouraged. We emphasize both academic and moral excellence. Our curriculum integrates solid core knowledge with traditional classical studies. Our primary grades, beginning in kindergarten, use an award-winning phonics program. Our students learn to read early and well. Our students score consistently high on CAT 5 and SAT tests.
