OUR CURRICULUM

We integrate outdoor and adventure activities into all aspects of the program as well as self-paced core-curriculum classes that allow each teen to “keep up or catch up” in their academic needs.

OUR FOUNDATION

Lakeside Academy was built on a foundation of faith. The program includes biblical principles that focus on fostering new behaviors, developing character, and on allowing each teen boy to recognize their purpose and potential.
