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.

Walk to End Alzheimer's - Southwest Oklahoma
Running Clubs: This is a walk rather than a run, but it’s a great way to start the season. All LAAS Family are invited to join the running teams in the 2017 Walk to End Alzheimer’s—Southwest Oklahoma happening Saturday, Aug. 26, at Elmer Thomas Park. The event starts at 7:30 a.m., but the walk starts at 9:00 a.m. It’s free, but you’ll want to register online. We hope to see you there! We hope to see those who aren't in running club as well!
Spirit Week Aug. 28 - Sept.1
Monday: Crazy Shoes Day Tuesday: School Colors (elementary: blue & gray) Wednesday: Animal Day Thursday: Unicolor Day (wear your favorite color!) Friday: Jocks vs. Nerds Day (dress as one; we’ll see who wins!)
Kids, don’t forget to bring your mBots if you have one on Fridays. You should be testing out your balloon protection additions to see if you can maneuver the obstacles. Our first mBot competition will be Tuesday, Sept. 26. The competition will begin at 3:30 and end with the finals at the potluck. Those in running club can join in when they finish that club.
