Welcome From the President
The thirty-five day and boarding schools that comprise the Lake Michigan Association of Independent Schools (LMAIS) pride themselves on providing students and their families access to a quality education where all students learn to love learning in an atmosphere that is safe, caring, and personal.
LMAIS is about people, academics, community, and individual growth. Our programs emphasize the essential skills that students need to succeed in school, university, and later in life. Students at LMAIS schools are effective communicators, authentic collaborators, creative problem solvers, and critical thinkers. In combination with our rigorous curriculum, these essential skills build a foundation of self-confidence and achievement. As we hold onto our traditions and our strengths, we also look forward to an exciting future marked by increasing distinction and new discovery.
We are tremendously proud of our reputation for top quality education. There are many reasons for our ongoing success: outstanding student achievement; faculty who are deeply committed to the individual learning journey of each individual child, accepting, supporting, and celebrating each student’s character, interests, learning style, and potential for limitless growth; and a community of parents who are involved and invested in their children’s education.
Independent school parents not only become involved in the life of the school but also build authentic relationships with faculty and staff as well as lifelong friendships with other parents.
I hope you find the pages and links to our member schools in this website both informative and inspiring. I encourage you to take some time to get to know our individual schools and experience our warm, welcoming, and dynamic learning environments for yourself.
Thank you for your interest in LMAIS and for considering an independent school education for your child.
President of LMAIS
