Academy at the Lakes

Academy at the Lakes is a PreK3 – 12th Grade private independent school celebrating the love of learning and the joy in the journey. Academy prepares students for college and life through a balance of strong academics, competitive athletics, and a multitude of fine arts opportunities all within a warm, welcoming community.

Students at Academy learn and grow in a culture that teaches empathy and virtue, then brings those ideas to life through action. It’s not about high-stakes testing and homework, it’s about endowing children with the skills that will lead to a great life.

Academy students are not only prepared for the future, they enjoy every step along the way. At Academy, your child is known and accepted. You Matter Here™.

Vanguard School has been providing individualized education to students who learn differently through skill assessment, multi-modality teaching, and focus on the whole student since 1966. We use a variety of teaching styles and consistently improve our services to meet the needs of our students. Our rolling admissions offers students and families the opportunity to join the Vanguard School family throughout the school year.

We work with co-educational students in 6th through 12th grades who experience an array of learning challenges, by addressing social/emotional learning opportunities, executive functioning solutions, and to help students gain the confidence to drive their motivation and goal attainment. We focus on guiding students to utilize core values (community, resilience, integrity, empathy, and leadership) to self-evaluate their behaviors and intentions. All students are valued and celebrated for their individuality and strengths. We are Vanguard.
