Abbott Lawrence Academy Events

Right before the holiday break, our ALA family embraced the spirit of giving by participating in a school wide day of community service. Over 250 students and staff dedicated their day to serving others at Cor Unum, Lawrence Catholic Academy, YDO, Habitat for Humanity Restore, Nevins Nursing Home, Project Home Again, Lazarus House, Spark Academy, and the Lawrence Senior Center. It was a fun and enriching experience that we will continue to incorporate into our holiday traditions! Many thanks to all of the participants that allowed this event to be possible! Also, a huge thank you to the ALA guidance counselor Micaela Tetrault Masterson for orchestrating this whole event!

On October 19th, 2017 Abbott Lawrence Academy juniors were treated to a visit from renowned Dominican author Junot Diaz. Students had just finished reading his book, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, and had tons of questions. The casual and open forum allowed Junot and students to discuss elements of the book, growing up Dominican in the United States, and overarching issues of identity as students prepare for the future. It was a transformative experience for both staff and students!
