Lake Country Academy is a public charter school that is tuition-free. We offer a unique educational experience, not already offered in the public sector in a surrounding area. Our founders of Lake Country Academy chose a specific design supporting high academics and a virtuous environment defined by three pillars: Direct Instruction, Core Knowledge, and Core Virtues.

  • We use Direct Instruction as a teaching method and group students in math, reading, and spelling by ability, not by grade. These groups are usually smaller than regular class sizes and a great deal of monitoring is done to ensure that each student is placed at the level where they are most successful. If a student needs to change groups, it can be done swiftly and with no class time wasted.
    • Students are with their peers for all other classes and are engaged in Core Knowledge, a curriculum that is rich with facts. Each grade is in sync with the next so students build from one year to the next on knowledge gained from each subject area.
    • We also integrate a Core Virtue program in classwork, behavior management, and the overall culture of the school. Students learn and apply values that are commonly believed to be important such as responsibility, respect, perseverance, kindness, generosity, and honesty. A different virtue is highlighted each month and is the focus at weekly all-school assemblies.
