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.

If you missed registration last Saturday, see Mr. Smith to fill out the registration form, pay the $36 registration fee, and fill out a survey to determine when practice will be. Games are at the YMCA on Saturday mornings. Until practice days are determined, any wishing to get started will practice Tuesday at 4:30 pm here at school.
5th Grade To Starbase
The 5th graders were at Starbase on Ft. Sill all of week. While there, the students learned much science and geography-related information and performed many experiments. Levi Petty was selected as Captain for Lawton Academy because of his great retention of what was taught and his thirst for knowledge. Congratulations, Cpt. Levi!
