The culture at Lift For Life Academy is nurturing, compassionate and challenging. It feels like family and our priority is to ensure that all students are proficient in core subjects, are able to graduate with a strong academic foundation and then assist them in developing a life plan beyond graduation.
We built four new classrooms at the elementary school in preparation for incoming third graders. Next summer construction will begin on fourth grade classrooms and then the following year, fifth grade classrooms. By 2022 LFLA will be a complete Academy – K through 12th grade!
LFLA Receives Literacy Grant
The Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded us a grant that will provide funding for the purchase of new books. Literacy is our priority so this is a fantastic enhancement to our literacy program at the elementary school. BIG THANKS to the Dollar General Literacy Foundation!
