Dear Students and Families,


Welcome to Lotus Academy. At Lotus we are dedicated to overcoming obstacles, building resilience, and empowering learners.  No matter the road that led you to Lotus Academy, we are glad you are here.  Our staff will model for students how to walk with grace and confidence, by creating structures that foster a sense of belonging. We use restorative practices to build into students in order to strengthen their pursuit of goals and aspirations. It is our hope to partner directly with you through daily communication, sharing strategies for growth in areas of social/emotional need, and working through “the hard stuff” as it comes. The goal of this alternative education pathway is to create a safe environment with quality learning experiences for students to become productive and successful learners and achieve continued success upon return to their base schools and beyond.

This link to our handbook will fully outline Lotus Academy program and policy descriptions, as well as explain all rules and expectations.

We look forward to joining hands with you and your family. Please reach out directly with any questions or concerns to dkeener@ccps.us or by calling 804-448-4249.
