Leelanau is not your typical boarding and day school. We offer students in grades 9-12 an educational experience where integrated learning support, individualized attention, small classes, and a commitment to whole-person wellness are at the center of what we do.
Students discover and develop their strengths as both students and citizens with the guidance of engaged faculty committed to cultivating a school where students know and embrace themselves as learners - no matter how they learn.
Our Mission: The Leelanau School ignites a passion for learning where students thrive by engaging academically and by celebrating everyone’s unique learning styles in a culture of acceptance, leading to successful and meaningful lives in college and beyond.
What we Believe …
Learning should be a joyful process of discovery.
Every student is different: each brings their own learning style, strengths and weaknesses.
There are many ways to learn a single lesson or subject.
Teachers should be free to modify their lessons to meet a student’s needs.
Learning can happen anywhere – especially outside of the classroom.
