Our Mission
Lakefront Children's Academy
Serving Chicago Families

Since 1967

We do not rush young children into acquiring academic knowledge. Each child is gently guided into learning what they can do to accept themselves and to take pride in and derive satisfaction from personal achievements.  We want to build a creative foundation for a lifetime of learning within your child. Our experienced staff helps develop self-confidence, interdependence, curiosity, persistence, initiative, and the ability to concentrate and organize.

Our school is also interested in promoting and developing positive social skills.  Building a trusting relationship with peers and adults is very important.  Our experienced staff helps develop self-confidence, independence, focus, curiosity, persistence, initiative and the ability to concentrate and organize.​
