Lotus Academy

Peace, Love and Power

An independent, African centered school for Pre‑K to 4th grade students

The Lotus Academy is an independent, private, African centered school that was founded in 1974, and has operated since that time on the basis of one primary objective: creating an academically superior and culturally affirming institution that develops future leaders, life-long learners, and world citizens.

It is made up of two separate programs that are considered as one unified school. Our Early Learning Center is a state-licensed day care center that provides our kindergarten and pre-kindergarten students with a foundation that will allow them to develop into the kind of scholars and role models that are envisioned by the higher grades of the Lotus Academy.

The Lower School is made up of our first, second, third, and fourth-grade students. It is a preparatory program for middle school and beyond that builds superior academic skills, study habits, and character.

Our staff is not only devoted to academic excellence and character development, but they are also keenly aware of the need to educate our young people in a learning environment that emphasizes and reinforces our rich and proud history, heritage, and sense of community as African people.
