Creating the Leaders of Tomorrow

Lawton Academy provides a differentiated curriculum aimed at meeting the needs of gifted students. Classes are designed to engage students in meaningful research, to develop problem-solving strategies, and to promote critical and creative thinking through a rigorous curriculum that not only satisfies their intellectual curiosity, but also creates the opportunity for maximizing potential. Students at Lawton Academy are required to explore the arts and academics fully, with participation in advanced-level classes and fine arts (music, art, technology, public speaking/theater) being required of all students. Being identified as a "gifted learner" is not necessary for admission. Many of our students are self-motivated learners who enjoy the opportunity to work alongside others committed to the learning process.

Accredited by AdvancED

Lawton Academy is accredited by North Central Association, Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI)/AdvancEd which is recognized for accreditation by the Oklahoma State Department of Education.

We also offer scholarship opportunities through the Opportunity Scholarship Fund, a tax-credit scholarship fund that provides scholarships to Oklahoma K-12 students.

School News

  • Open Enrollment

    Featured Students

    We officially have more student contracts for next year than we have attending school this year! That's exciting! If you haven't gotten your contract signed and in, please don't delay. The PK3 - K classes are just about to close!

  • Relay for Life - April 21 @ 6:00 p.m. @ Cameron

    Featured Students

    We’ll be walking at Relay for Life with “Team Cure-ageous,” so there is no need for you to register online. (The team’s already registered.) We’d like to get as many of our kids and families out to Cameron to walk as possible. There are food vendors at the Walk, and all proceeds from those sales go to cancer research as well. Between the Valentine cards sales and the Fun Friday Babysitting donations, our kids have raised $532 toward fighting this disease. Let’s send a big message to the Caltons and many others of our LAAS family who have battled this disease that we care about finding a cure!

  • Moving Pizzazz Musical

    Featured Students

    Thursday, April 27 at 6:00 p.m. This is a high school play, Parents, so it’s a little over an hour-and-a-half long. Please feed your child(ren) before the play. I know that’s inconvenient if you work right up to the time, but you could always bring it here and let them eat while getting in costume! If we wait till 6:30, though, we’ll run out of light! So, students will need to be here by 5:45 to get into costume. They’re going to be great, and it’s a really funny musical! See you then!

  • Starbase

    Featured Students

    The 4th/5th grades will be traveling to Ft. Sill for five day-long workshops this month. The dates are April 11, 12, 17, 18, and 19. Students will need to bring a sack lunch each of those days.
