The Lawson Academy

The Lawson Academy fosters a student-centered learning environment modeling high expectations for academic achievement and provides an atmosphere of mutual respect for students, staff, family, and community members.

The Academy, conceived by Mrs. Audrey Lawson, opened in 2002. In 2016, the Kinder Foundation made a catalyst commitment to the William A. Lawson Institute for Peace & Prosperity: a $1 million matching gift for the new Lawson Academy, the largest single donation to the capital campaign for the construction of The Lawson Academy. The school opened in 2017.
