LVSS students come from around the world and many states to experience the combination of academic rigor and boarding school life of Lawrenceville. The LVSS administration and faculty is comprised of Lawrenceville teachers and Harkness-trained teachers who have together created an innovative and successful community. Residential students live in Lawrenceville’s historic houses and all students are part of house life, which includes an all-school reading (a novel), communal meals, activities, and creatively fun House Olympics. This combination of warmth and academic challenge is incomparable. As one LVSS parent wrote: “It is so special for a parent to see their child thrive and grow as a result of the encouragement and fertile environment of such a wonderful place. We can’t thank you enough.” Lawrenceville Summer Scholars 2500 Main Street Lawrenceville, NJ 08648 609-620-6683
