La Lumiere is about stepping outside your comfort zone and finding a whole community supporting you there and relishing your success.

#WhyLaLu

For our family, La Lumiere is more than a terrific school community nestled in the northwest corner of the state. For us, it is where our son came into his own, excelled. And where my husband and I learned how to parent a young adult.

#WHYLALU

I often tell young people the biggest mistake you can make is to not set your expectations high enough. La Lumiere is a place where you can discover and cultivate your gifts, and become the best version of yourself.

#whylalu

Because every member of our community is invested in this place. There's buy in. Doesn't matter if you're a freshman or a senior, a department chair or a part of the maintenance team, an alum from 40 years ago or a new boarding parent—it's your school and you're a part of making it as great as it can be. People are here to grow, to become more complete versions of themselves. And with that foundation, amazing things happen.

Each time I come to campus, I anticipate the smiling students who will greet me although I've never met them, the engaged, conversational teachers, and the beauty of the lake and pine woods.

Each time I leave the campus, I have a feeling of energized confidence, so honored to be a part of such a unique "second family".

#WhyLaLu

My daughter Brenna (2020) is a current student and has found La Lu to be a perfect fit. Great students, top notch faculty and administrators, a welcoming and caring community, we don’t believe there is a better place. We’re proud to be part of the La Lu family.

#whylalu

I received an education from educators who deeply cared about my personal success and well-being. I participate on the Board of Trustees at La Lumiere to support teachers who continue to immerse themselves in the complete education of great kids.  I participate on the Board to give back to the remarkable community that gave me a world-class education.

#whylalu

Because high school should be more than classes, grades and ACT prep, it should be a place where you can grow up, learn who you are, make mistakes and feel accepted. La Lu feels like home, and that feeling never leaves you.

At La Lumiere, character, kindness, service, and respect count. Happiness exudes from the community. It's a place where all are deeply valued.

La Lumiere is more than just a school, it’s a center point from which positive culture, community, and education radiate. It supports and bolsters a child’s strengths and gives them the confidence to address their weaknesses. The headmaster and all staff are clear, straightforward, warm and enthusiastic. If La Lu’s structure was replicated across America, we’d have a more thoughtful, more dynamic population of students.

#whylalu

Unknowingly at the time, La Lumiere challenged me at every level and gave me the tools I needed in life to turn the ordinary into extraordinary.  Educationally, physically and spiritually, La Lumiere prepared me for what life can and would throw at me.  I came to realize over the years that my personal toolbox was filled with tremendous capabilities.  I would not be the person I am today without La Lumiere and the La Lumiere Family.
