LM brings out the best in students
As a comprehensive, holistic school, LM helps students of diverse abilities and interests be all they can be. The student body includes students with academic difficulties as well as Merit Scholars; it includes those who want to work with their hands as well as those who aspire to work towards professional careers.
As the first in-school experience, Pre-K lays the foundation for future education.
Our approach is a balanced literacy-enriched program that involves reading, writing, listening and speaking. Many hands-on activities and games enhance the teaching of mathematical skills and concepts.
The elementary program emphasizes foundational skills, habits and knowledge for success in middle school and beyond. Classes are self-contained, except for physical education, music and art, which are taught by specialists in facilities devoted to those subjects.
In addition to excellent academic, athletic and social opportunities, all LM middle school students experience spiritual formation as they study the Bible, participate in devotions and attend chapel.
LM students consistently win regional and national awards in art, music, writing, FFA, athletics, and other competitions.
Designed for Success
LM’s academic excellence is evidenced by significantly higher Advanced Placement test success of LM students versus PA and national averages, according to College Board data. The 5-year trend clearly reflects the growing strength of LM’s academic program that drives increasing AP success while PA and national averages remained unchanged over the years. LM is exceptionally strong in AP Calculus AB for which our students achieved a mean score of 4.57 in 2014 compared to PA and national averages of 3.24 and 2.94, respectively. For other AP subjects such as Biology, Environmental Science, Statistics, US History and World History, LM students out-performed PA and National averages by significant margins.

The staff in the Learning Support program works with students in a holistic way that enables them to grow academically, spiritually, socially, and physically. LM offers services to ensure that students who learn differently are given a chance to realize their full academic potential. Federal and state guidelines are useful to program design; however, LM is an independent school and forms a program that best serves our students without the restrictions and requirements of strictly following government mandates.
