By growing the minds of our students, LPA serves the greater purpose of building our communities. We question everything. Then, collaborate to create greater ideas together than we could on our own. We do this not as an endpoint, but a new beginning for further innovation and reflection.


Lafayette Preparatory Academy is a community that prepares all students for academic and collegiate success—equipping them to enter the world as active, responsible and involved citizens and leaders.


  • Growing minds, building community
  • Question, collaborate, create


  • Academic excellence
  • Joyful, safe learning environment
  • Support the needs of the whole child
  • Lead by valuing and exploring diversity


We believe all of our students can and will achieve ambitious academic and personal outcomes. We encourage curiosity and thrive from challenge. Staff and parents collaborate to create a learning community that helps all students identify their interests and promote their strengths. In this joyful and intentionally diverse atmosphere, students feel developed and cared for as people and become responsible problem-solvers, communicators, teammates and leaders.
