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.


"Montessori is a wonderful environment for kids with special needs. As a parent of a child with special needs, I could not imagine him in a traditional classroom. The staff place the highest priority on our student's needs, and for once, we never have to worry about him at class." - 2022 LSA Parents

"I've got to highly recommend Lake Superior Academy for young learners. Both of my kids struggled when they enrolled in public schools years ago, and it was such a rollercoaster for our family. We have recieved such an outpouring of support at LSA over the past few years. I couldn't have done any of this without the compassion of Ms. Susie, the educators, and the rest of the staff." -2022 LSA Parents

"What I appreciate about Lake Superior Academy can be summed up in one sentence. At LSA, there is timely communication. They listen, respond, and communicate until there is understanding on both sides. We feel that they are always doing their best to meet both our needs and the needs of our children." - 2022 LSA Parents
