Exciting News! We’re moving for the 15-16 School Year.

We have exciting news!!! LPA is moving to a new building for the upcoming school year. That’s right, we will be in a different building this August!


We are moving to 1881 Pine, which is at 18th and Olive.

We are still planning to move to Lafayette Square in a year (for the 16-17 school year). In fact, the developer has finalized the purchase of that building. We are well on our way to breaking ground on our permanent home in September of 2015, so that we will be ready to move in at the end of May 2016.


So, why have we decided to move for the 15-16 school year, knowing that we will move again a year later? The 1881 Pine location will provide us the spaces we need to continue to provide our students the best educational experiences possible.


  • All of our classes will be on one floor.
  • All of the classrooms will be close to 1,000 square feet.
  • We will have more control of the space because it will be closed to the public.
  • We will have an enclosed play space that is only ours to use, as well as a nearby public green space for our students to play outside.
  • There is much more parking!


What is the anticipated timeline for all of this?


July 2015                    Move into 1881 Pine

August 2015              The 15-16 school year begins

We hope you are as excited about this move as we are. Even though it requires extra work, we are working for the best interest of our students, families, and staff.


We also want to express our appreciation for the support of Dean Mike Kinman and the congregation of Christ Church Cathedral for welcoming us into the Tuttle Memorial Building for our first two years. Without this building, LPA would not exist, and for their support we are forever grateful. As we watch our school grow over the years, we will always remember that our foundation was built here at the Christ Church Cathedral Bishop Tuttle Memorial Building, with the support of Dean Kinman and the congregation of Christ Church Cathedral. Thank you.

It’s just a hop, skip and jump away!
