Lakewood Catholic Academy

Lakewood Catholic Academy Photo #1 - Visit our beautiful, 8-acre campus on the shores of Lake Erie!
Lakewood Catholic Academy opened in August 2005 as a consolidated Catholic school, joining together four existing Lakewood parish schools: Saint Clement, Saint James, Saint Luke, and Saints Cyril and Methodius.
Today, we serve students ages six weeks old through 8th grade.
We are one of the largest Catholic early childhood learning facilities in the state of Ohio, as well as the only Catholic school in the state to offer an International Baccalaureate middle school program.
