Learning more about La Lumiere during COVID-19

We wish we could welcome you to campus, but the health and safety of our students, staff, and visitors remains our top priority. We have been working on various ways to showcase our community and school virtually and we are excited to share with you a series of videos that will help you get to know La Lumiere. These videos will introduce you and your family to our school leaders, our staff, and our incredible students. Each video will look at a different component of the La Lumiere experience. #WhyLaLu

Scholarship at La Lumiere

As a community of learners, we engage in civil discourse, listen charitably, work to be responsibly informed, and encounter the world with genuine interest. Our faculty guides students as they hone academic skills and habits of mind, and we have high expectations for how all students will grow and learn. Meaningful learning takes place when the dynamic between teacher and pupil is close-knit, and personal connections foster a process which engages students’ experiences and interests to draw forth their best efforts. Beyond content mastery, our scholars develop a sense of wonder and an appetite for lifelong learning.


Residential Life at La Lumiere

La Lumiere boarding students are independent, responsible, intellectually curious young people who want more than traditional schooling has to offer. If that sounds like you, there’s good news—there’s a whole other school experience out there, it’s way beyond what you expect, and you can find it right here at La Lu. This is a place where smart is cool, where learning is loved, exploration is mandatory, challenge is welcomed, fun is guaranteed, and opportunities are everywhere.

La Lumiere Lakers are always backed up by faculty who know how to help them be the very best they can be, no matter what they’re working on. The individualized support and opportunities to always seek out new activities will serve them for a lifetime—meaning they're ready for college long before it even begins.


I am so thankful to be a part of such a close-knit community, especially in a time like this. It’s comforting to know there are so many others looking out for my children’s mental, physical, and academic well being. To my pleasant surprise, my kids continue to be deeply challenged which is a testament to the incredible and deeply committed staff at La Lumiere.
