August 28, 2020

It has been a pleasure getting to know your student in these first few weeks of school! In this short period of time, we have already seen many transformational learning experiences among students. The caliber of students who come to LAU is truly extraordinary. We’re grateful to have this chance to serve you and interact with principled young leaders like your student. We hope you’re both enjoying your experience so far. 

Here is your update for the coming week!

Executive Director, LAU

You can also find the link to this page under “Recent Posts” in the Info Center.
