At LAS, we offer a differentiated educational program that meets students’ needs and supports them as they realize their academic potential and develop into lifelong learners.
Students begin their academic journey at LAS in Middle School (grades 7 and 8). Students in our Middle School program have six core classes and two elective blocks. This curriculum helps students learn to work collaboratively and effectively as they gain essential skills and knowledge that will create a strong foundation for future academic success.
Students in our Preparatory Years (grades 9 and 10) are in a crucial time of self-discovery. We support their expanding interests by providing them with a combination of core classes, classes based on their interests, and experiential opportunities. Through careful guidance and instruction, we help them become effective self-directed learners. By exposing them to new opportunities, supporting their academic growth, and encouraging them to identify their interests, we prepare students for the rigor of the Diploma Years.
Our academic program culminates in the Diploma Years (grades 11 and 12) when students choose to pursue the International Baccalaureate Diploma or the LAS Diploma. Both programs are uniquely challenging and encourage students to develop their curiosity and independence while ultimately preparing them for post-secondary success.
At LAS, we provide our students with an appealing and diverse academic program. We offer International Baccalaureate (IB) classes, Advanced Placement (AP) classes, pre-AP classes, regular section classes, and electives. Our academic and university advisors work with every student to help them select the most appropriate courses to achieve their future goals. Whether students choose to graduate with the LAS Diploma or an International Baccalaureate Diploma, our team will be there at every step to ensure they are on the path to success.
The flexibility of our program allows students to mix and match classes. Our extensive curriculum enables students to engage in core and exploratory programs at every level during the school day and beyond. LAS students enjoy small class sizes and have access to ample support and resources, meaning they receive personalized attention and can engage in robust discussions with their peers and teachers alike. Nearly 100% of our faculty members live on campus, so students have access to their teachers at night and on weekends, ensuring they can always find help when needed.
When LAS graduates leave campus, they do so with the essential knowledge and skills they need to succeed as they take the next step.
