Commemorative Brick- “Paving the Way to a Brighter Future”

This program offers the opportunity for you to support the Achievement Academy by personalizing a brick paver, which will be engraved and installed on the Lakeland school campus.

The bricks can be engraved to honor a graduate, student, family member, celebrate your child’s teacher or promote your business. For your $125 donation, we will install a 4” x 8” engraved brick. You can purchase a brick online through our website.
