At Lake Mary Prep, we believe that advisory classes and character development are both important aspects of an adolescents' social and emotional development. Due to this strong belief, our Middle School students participate in weekly advisory classes. These classes, held every Thursday, follow a written curriculum and focus on the character development of our students. What sets LMP apart from other schools, is the one-on-one support we offer our students both academically and socially. This support comes from our teachers and administrators. Our advisory class environment, which is informal, fosters these student-faculty relationships.
Topics in our advisory program include respect, conflict resolution, bullying, coping with peer pressure, adolescent changes, digital citizenship, and more. Students are given mock situations to resolve and participate in various role-playing activities. Students are required to complete various assignments relating to the topics covered in the class.
Student academic achievements will be recognized in an annual awards ceremony at the end of the school year. Students work diligently throughout the school year and the Middle School Awards Ceremony is a time when faculty, parents and students come together and acknowledge Lake Mary Preparatory School’s outstanding achievers.
Quarterly Event Nights
Event nights are voted on by the student body, and led by the student government organization. Some examples include roller skating, lock-in, powder puff, dances, and bowling.
These event nights are intended help students bond and get to know each other in a non-academic setting.
Middle School Class Trips
