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.

Operation Christmas Child
One of the most important things we teach kids at LAAS is philanthropy. When they become leaders, we want them to remember to be charitable to those less fortunate than they. All student teams/houses in both elementary and secondary are collecting small toys to send to a child in a third world country for Christmas. Please allow your child to bring a small new toy for this project. Examples: a slinky, a very small stuffed animal, a pack of cards, a rubber ball and paddle set. Do not send food or anything that could melt, please. Thank you for helping!
Soccer practices begin next Thursday, Aug. 29. U6 and U8 teams will practice from 5:30—6:30 p.m. on our field. U10 and U12 teams will practice from 6:30—7:30 p.m. on our field as well. Parents, plan to stay while your child is practicing. Students on the U10 and U12 teams need to purchase the two team t-shirts by Aug. 23 at: Blue Shirt https://www.customink.com/g/ncw0-00bx-g4a0 White Shirt https://www.customink.com/g/ncw0-00bx-g49b
