Where Individuality and Differences are Celebrated!

Why Choose GLA?

Boys having fun at lunchGreat Lakes Academy takes pride in our recognition of the whole child. We take pride in providing a positive and nurturing place for each child to learn and grow both academically and socially. Our students want to come to school, because it is a place where they gather with friends, learn new things, and feel proud of themselves. Our parents appreciate the real-world skills and social skills that their children gain. Our teachers enjoy the opportunity to individualize their approach for each student because of the small class size.

At Great Lakes Academy, your child will learn academic content and social skills side by side with individualized expectations in a warm community environment. They will engage in academic content with hands-on teachers providing a multi-sensory approach to learning and real-world experiences. They will find empathy and tolerance in both teachers and peers, and learn to express empathy and tolerance themselves.

Students in the snow Children who have struggled in traditional environments thrive at GLA. They find acceptance, self-confidence, and new learning in equal measure. We afford each student the opportunity to develop an appreciation of their own uniqueness, as well as a sense of accountability and responsibility for their academic experience.

We look forward to meeting and welcoming your child. Please contact us for more information or to schedule your visit.
