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.

January Family Potluck
It's time once again for our annual Chili Cook-off and Salsa Showdown! This is our monthly potluck, so you could bring other food if you'd like. To be in the contest, bring your best chili and/or salsa. All there will judge, and the winners of each will receive a $50 Chili's gift card. We will also be inducting four high school students into honor society. Don't miss the fun!
