Our Vision

Praise Academy at Lakeside is a safe and vibrant neighborhood elementary whose doors opened in the fall of 2015. We currently serve pre-kindergarten through sixth grade students and will eventually expand up to eighth grade. Our school is a work of the People of Praise Christian community. Members of the People of Praise live and work in the Lakeside neighborhood. Since 2003, we have run a successful yearly summer camp that has served over 200 neighborhood children. This school was born out of a desire to continue to serve these children throughout the year.

At Praise Academy we foster a child's natural ability to see what is true, beautiful and good in God's creation through a classical education. We believe all children have the potential to learn, and our curriculum individualizes the learning needs of each child. Relying on more than thirty years of experience in education, we lay a strong foundation that assists our students to become productive, employable and active members of their families and community.


Our Mission

To provide an education that fosters each child's natural ability to become a productive, employable and active member of family and community through a Christ-centered classical education.
