At Lawrence Central, we are proud that our academic and extra-curricular opportunities are as rich and diverse as our student body.  Award winning programs abound, not only for the academically gifted, but also for those with gifts in the performing arts, journalism, speech and debate, the arts and athletics.  Our classrooms strive to match the intellectual, behavioral and social needs of all students through varied instructional pathways and strategies. 

Lawrence Central students are also supported by the McKenzie Center for Innovation and Technology which provides training in a variety of business, medical and industrial fields. 

A Lawrence Central education is an advantage for life!
