Upper School

Welcome to Lakeview Academy Upper School, grades 9-12. The Upper School strives to empower students to be independent, responsible citizens, by promoting a culture where all students develop a feeling of self-worth, pride and confidence.

As a college preparatory school, we desire for all students to excel in all subjects academically. Our advanced curriculum includes sixteen advanced placement courses and nine honors courses divided among all content areas. Along with our rigorous academic curriculum, our students are enriched with physical education, fine arts and technology.

The faculty and staff at Lakeview understand the value of a good education and the significance of faculty, parents, and students working together. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions, comments or concerns.
