Quick Info

The teachers and staff at Great Lakes Academy stand TOGETHER against racism and police brutality.

We embrace, as a school community, the continued important conversations that surround all the issues we are currently facing.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
