Lotus Academy

The Lotus Academy was founded in 1974, and has operated since that time on the basis of one primary objective: creating an academically superior and culturally affirming institution that develops future leaders and thinkers. Because the Lotus Academy is a private, independent school that receives no funding from city, state, or federal sources, it is able to operate on a very selective admissions basis. Every student applicant is tested and observed, and must meet our high academic and developmental standards in order to be accepted for admission. All incoming students’ previous report cards and school records are thoroughly reviewed prior to their admission to ensure that their behavioral and character development will also allow them to be successful in a program where conduct is as important as academic performance.

The Lotus Academy is dedicated to educating talented students who come from families that motivate them and support their academic, creative, and character development. The school’s mission is to provide these students with an academic program that will ensure a solid foundation of learning skills while guiding and directing them to be innovative and independent thinkers. At the same time, every aspect of the program is designed to instill a strong sense of discipline, respect, and self-control in every student. One of the critical elements in this process is a commitment to ground the Lotus Academy program in a cultural environment that enhances our students’ sense of self-confidence and self-esteem by nurturing them with a celebration of their African heritage.
