Growth within strategic limits

  
   As Lake Pointe continues a record-setting registration pace for 2012-13, perspective is important. An intentionally small academy that grows is still "small" by education standards. This is a good thing, since the mentoring intention of LPA's teacher-parent-student learning approach and relationships is more handicapped in too large a setting.   

 

"I don't want my child getting lost!" 

Parents and students alike report that it's harder for teachers to connect or even communicate when classes are too large. Small class sizes are a vital ingredient in the University Model schedule and mentor model of classroom teaching. For this reason, LPA's class rolls are capped as follows: 

  • Elementary: 15
  • Secondary:  18
