The mission of Great Lakes Academy is to provide a stimulating environment and favorable atmosphere which affords each student opportunities to develop:
An appreciation for their own uniqueness.
Self-confidence and self-worth via successful learning experiences, social skills classes and positive reinforcement.
Coping skills that will help them to become more effective students.
A sense of accountability and responsibility for their own academic experience and social skills.
Great Lakes Academy is a fantastic private school for parents looking for an above average school that takes care of their kids. Parents who have had less than pleasant experiences in other schools would love GLA and the way they address these issues or handle our kids. My son has been here thru his high school years and he loved the whole experience. GLA works with our kids towards their individual needs and ensures the kids get a good education and are ready for college. We are extremely happy to have found GLA at the right time for our son.
Our son has attended Great Lakes Academy since the 3rd grade, and is now in 7th! He has loved this school since day one. The teachers, Principal, Executive Director and the entire Administrative team are awesome. They go above and beyond the call of duty! :) The best thing for a parent that has a child that attends Great Lakes Academy, is that you can drop off your kid every day at school and know they will be in good hands. You can drive away with out worry. You can leave with peace of mind. That in itself is worth a million bucks! We will forever love Great Lakes and what they have done for our son.
