La Lumiere School Photo #1 - Our liberal arts curriculum provides a foundation in English literature and composition, mathematics, social and physical sciences, world languages, theology, ethics, and the creative arts, with a special emphasis on critical thinking and the mastery of oral and written communication.
La Lumiere School Photo #2 - La Lumiere School is a private, independent boarding and day school founded in 1963, located in La Porte, Indiana, on an idyllic 190-acre wooded campus. At La Lumiere, we form character, cultivate scholarship, and explore faith in order to grow into more complete versions of ourselves.
La Lumiere School Photo #3 - We believe that character is best formed in a community founded on authentic relationships and trust. We structure experiences that encourage students to develop the agency, grit, and self-discipline to take ownership of their lives and the empathy, integrity, and courage to advocate for others.
La Lumiere School Photo #4 - As a community of learners, we engage in civil discourse, listen charitably, work to be responsibly informed, and encounter the world with genuine interest. Our faculty guides students as they hone academic skills and habits of mind. Beyond content mastery, our scholars develop a sense of wonder and an appetite for lifelong learning.
La Lumiere School Photo #5 - With a student-teacher ratio of 7 to 1, La Lumiere students enjoy a level of personalized attention that simply does not exists at larger schools. Since about 50% of our faculty live on campus, they are not only your teachers, but your coaches, dorm parents, advisors and study hall proctors.
La Lumiere School Photo #6 - Earnest exploration of faith is an integral part of education. We strive to practice and live out our own faith lives, even as we explore our beliefs. No matter what their religion, each member of our school family belongs. Together, we seek spiritual understanding through the pursuit of an active and authentic spiritual life centered on reflection, self-awareness, and hope.
La Lumiere School Photo #7 - The arts are alive at La Lumiere School. Our performing arts and fine arts curricula allow for the discovery of new creative talents and a more focused platform for the serious art student. Coursework and activities include painting, drawing, sculpture, studio techniques, art history, photography, videography, jazz band, concert choir, and music theory.
La Lumiere School Photo #8 - Whether in the classroom, on the playing field, or in the community, students' days are filled with activities that are designed to structure their time, helping them make the most of their high school experience. La Lumiere offers elective classes, activities, and community service opportunities that play an important role in each student's day-to-day life at the school.
La Lumiere School Photo #9 - La Lumiere has a state of the art Math and Science Center that boasts courses including: AP Physics I and II, AP Calculus AB and BC, AP Statistics, and advanced courses in Anatomy and Physiology, Chemistry, and Biology.
La Lumiere School Photo #10 - La Lumiere offers varsity sports across a variety of programs including soccer, golf, tennis, basketball, baseball, volleyball, crew, lacrosse, and cross country. Because of our small size, all students have the opportunity to participate in athletics if they choose. Our students are competitive both in the classroom and on the fields and courts.
  • Why La Lumiere? Because the compassionately competitive culture here is palpable, emanating from every angle of the experience. From the intimate dorms and small classrooms to the dining tables in the fabled Moore House, this idyllic atmosphere is the medium, but the most reliable and powerful source-the engine of this beautiful machine-is the tone set by the student body itself.
