From the Head of School

Welcome to Lake Mary Preparatory School, and thank you for your interest in learning more about our wonderful school community. As you begin to explore our webpage, you will find a focus on diversity, inclusion and personal growth in academics, athletics, and the arts.  Through a differentiated approach to learning, students from Pre K-3 through 12th grade set out on a journey of creative exploration and grapple with big ideas that could potentially change the world.  We offer a safe, nurturing, and academically-rigorous learning environment that builds strong foundations in our students. With a caring and knowledgeable faculty, students learn to work side by side with mentors and advisors so that each student may reach his or her potential.  We believe that a well-rounded education starts with a growth mindset, and we encourage all students to be risk-takers at LMP.

Lake Mary Preparatory School currently offers 19 Advanced Placement (AP) courses, a nationally recognized Debate team, 36 athletic teams, internship opportunities, and a number of other programs.  LMP also embarks on yearly educational trips overseas so students have the opportunity to see their classroom come to life through real-world experiences.  Students learn to balance academics, extra-curricular activities, and family time as part of our whole-child approach.  Our counselors work directly with each student to develop a learner profile to ensure that each course and activity is relevant for future aspirations. 

We are proud and honored to be accredited by the Florida Council of Independent Schools (FCIS), Cognia, and the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS).
