LFA provides a wide selection of summer programs each year.

There are many exciting programs offered, and you have the choice of spending the day on the LFA campus or experiencing living on campus for part of the summer while you learn and explore.

We offer:

  • New in 2023, Summer Academy provides a remarkable learning opportunity for high school students and middle school students. High school students will engage in a rigorous curriculum taught by LFA teachers. Current LFA students will have the option to earn transcript credit (non-LFA high school students will be issued a transcript that they can provide to their high school). Middle school students will explore important STEAM topics and have fun developing and sharpening their critical thinking skills while having the opportunity to learn on our campus.
  • Athletic camps (soccer, swimming, ice hockey, lacrosse) created by LFA coaches as well as partners who are leaders in their sports.
  • Partner camps on the LFA campus, from organizations such as the eCamps Sports Network, Emagination Tech Camp, U.S. Sports Nike Camps, and more. (See Summer Partner Links below.)
  • Panther Camp - a day camp for elementary and preschool children
