The school year is divided into trimesters that begin the Tuesday after Labor Day and continue through the fourth week of May.
The Week of Thanksgiving
Three Weeks at Christmas
Texas Independence Day
Week Before Easter
One Day in May for the School Play
**Additional days off may be announced, as needed.
Classes meet between 8:00am and 12:10pm, Tuesday through Friday. This schedule allows more time for extracurricular activities as well as more family time.
The homework load is light in the younger grades, but increases each year.
Every morning starts with an all school chapel and then everyone splits up into their classes.
Classes are paired for most subjects. (i.e.: K4/K5; 1st/2nd; 3rd/4th; 5th/6th; 7th/8th; 9th/10th; 11th/12th)
Due to the shorter school day, we place a heavier emphasis on homework than would a daylong school. This is where the communal aspect of our school comes into play. Lakewood relies on parental support and partnership in helping raise their children up in the grace and knowledge of the Lord.
We follow a trimester schedule.
