  • Head of School

    Welcome to Lakeview Academy!  For over 50 years Lakeview has been providing students and their families with an energetic, caring, and success-oriented environment of learning for students in PreK 3 through grade 12. We are committed to the personal growth and academic development of all students through a partnership of family, school, and community.
    As head of school, I am committed to
    • Protecting the health and safety of our students and staff
    • Helping students find their passion, whether in the classroom, athletic field, or stage
    • Creating a family culture that is welcoming to all
    • Sustaining our strong academic program that is individualized as well as inclusive
    I welcome you to visit and see for yourself why Lakeview Academy is an educational gem that produces graduates ready for any ambition. College is the next steppingstone for 100 percent of our graduates, but even when they achieve post-secondary degrees, it’s no wonder that many of our graduates tell me, “I would not be who I am or where I am today without Lakeview.” 
    Call and schedule a visit today.  You’ll be glad you did!
