Lakeview Academy is a dynamic and nurturing day school for PreK 3 through grade 12 off I-985 in Gainesville, Georgia. Known as a leading independent, college-preparatory day school, our students and families describe Lakeview as a family and a learning community that challenges children to reach further than they thought possible. This strong sense of community and spirit sets us apart from other schools in Northeast Georgia.
Our students’ curiosity is sparked through a rigorous curriculum, and interpersonal relationships are developed through extensive extracurricular activities including award-winning fine arts, athletics, and robotics. We celebrate the uniqueness of every Lakeview student and offer individualized and differentiated learning through intentionally small class sizes. Our school culture encourages students to take educational risks and understand that failure is a critical step along the path to growth, success, and becoming a lifelong learner.
Bus routes are available to/from: Buford, Braselton, Chateau Elan, Cumming, Dawsonville, Flowery Branch, Suwanee, and more.
