An education is not something that can simply be applied to students like installing software. It must be offered and each student must make a decision whether or not to accept it. The recent State scores from the 2014-15 administration of the Georgia Milestones Assessment System show that students at Lake Oconee Academy (LOA) are choosing to accept the excellent education offered to them and are performing at one of the highest rates in the state.
The graph below shows LOA’s test scores compared to other schools commonly known as high-performing.

Georgia Milestones Assessment System assesses student learning along four levels of performance, compared to three, as was the case for the CRCT. These designations aim to shift the focus away from just test scores, instead capturing the progression of students’ learning.
At Lake Oconee Academy, we couldn’t be prouder of the hard work and dedication demonstrated by our students and teachers. We would also like to thank each and every supporter, taxpayer and all who contribute to making our school one of the highest achieving in the state. Such results can only be achieved when entire communities come together behind a common goal of preparing students for the global community in which we live, work and play.
