Inspiring Creativity, Collaboration, and Innovation

PORTER FAMILY CENTER FOR INNOVATION & ACADEMICS​

This exceptional 70,000+ square foot facility will offer transformative spaces for Highlanders to learn, collaborate, problem-solve, and create. The new Porter Family Center for Innovation & Academics will replace Hale and Johnson Halls, outdated structures built in the 1950’s which no longer match the excellence of our students or faculty.

All project designs are subject to change.

STORIES OF IMPACT

TOGETHER WE CAN

We give because our family loves and feels privileged to be a part of LHP. Giving to the Highlander Fund is one way we can give back and show our gratitude for the community that is helping us educate and shape the lives of our children.

JASON AND LORENA ACOSTA, PARENTS OF TWO HIGHLANDERS

Chances to significantly impact the future are few and fleeting! Our Elevate Highlanders' dreams, like newly planted trees under whose shade we may never sit, will long be beloved and cherished not only for themselves, but also for the sake of our children and our children’s children. The time is now to move beyond the good and go for the great!

Vice Admiral, U.S. Navy (Ret.) Al Harms

A Highlander has a mind for achievement, a body for competition, and a spirit for service. Our families, faculty, administrators, and coaches are all working together to create a better world, one student at a time. Be a part of our story!

Jeff Deery '82, Chairman of the Board of Trustees

We hope our gift to the Elevate Highlanders Campaign will inspire others who believe that an investment in Lake Highland’s future benefits us all. It is a gift that will last well beyond our own Highlanders’ years at LHP. Ultimately, we believe in the power of education to transform communities and lives, and we know the school will steward our gift with responsibility, care, and commitment to mission.

Tina & David Kind, Parents
