Lake Superior Academy wants every student to leave every day with: a happy heart, an eagerness to learn, and a strong foundation for success.


Lake Superior Academy is a tuition-free, public school serving children in Kindergarten through fifth grade. Classrooms are prepared to have warm and welcoming learning environments. Montessori teaching methods, philosophies and materials are employed to foster creativity and strong problem-solving skills. Daily schedules include 1-2 hours of outdoor exploration and learning. Our teachers hold themselves accountable for student progress and success.


The Montessori curriculum itself is a proven method of instruction designed for all types of learners, and has been an established model of education for over 100 years. Many parents around the world seek out Montessori education for their children because of its ability to create life-long learners who are confident, self-directed and well-respected. Lake Superior Academy brings together a true community of learners which embraces Maria Montessori's teachings and her ideals of diversity, peace education and individualized learning. At Lake Superior Academy, we serve the Chippewa County community.


Our real masterpiece is the unleashing of human potential. While our main focus is on creating the conditions of success for children to achieve their dreams, we also focus on developing one another through meaningful relationships, challenging work, constructive feedback, sound professional training, and a true commitment to nurturing the career path of each team member.
