La Lumiere School challenges and supports each of its 228 students to thrive—here on our wooded campus in La Porte, Indiana, an hour southeast of Chicago; in the colleges they pursue; and throughout their lives. We meet our freshmen where they are, carefully stretching them out of their comfort zones while maintaining an intentional, supportive environment. Graduation finds seniors who are well on... their way to growing into the best versions of themselves, comfortable in their own skins yet hungry for the next challenge—students who have grown in character, scholarship, and faith, and who believe that they’re at the helm of their own journey.
