Our goal is to create an environment

that naturally

engages learning.

Our Mission

We will emit a warm, nurturing environment, employ instructional methods that foster creativity, exploration and strong problem solving skills, and ensure accountability for student progress.

Our Vision

To have children leave with a happy heart, an eagerness to learn, and possess a strong, academic foundation for success.

Lake Superior Academy is a Montessori public school serving children in grades kindergarten through fifth grade.

Surrounded by some of the most gorgeous landscape in Michigan, we’re naturally environmentally focused, with on-campus gardens, composting and recycling.

Fun and Friendly Visitors

Last week was definitely a cold one, but luckily for us, we had visitors to warm our hearts!

Winter Ice Festival

This year was the 4th annual Winter Ice Festival, and this year we got to be a part of the fun! Chainsaws, chisels, and blow torches are the tools of the trade for these award-winning ice sculptors, and one of the sculptors created an LSA student for us. Check it out!

Elementary Auctions

Have you heard about our elementary auctions? Ron Wiens, Choice Schools Associates - Grand Rapids, MI - took part in our classroom auction today. The students had a blast and learned a great lesson in finance and fun!!!

Birding Fun!

This month we have been learning all about birds! We have learned about the food they eat and created our own feeders so we could do bird counts. We also learned about how a woodpecker's beak works, and practiced with a hammer and nails!
