“We only get one chance to prepare our students for a future that none of us can possibly predict. What are we going to do with that one chance?”  ~Stephen Covey

Lake Murray has been named a Stephen Covey Lighthouse School. 

Our goal will be to achieve “Lighthouse Status.”  Currently, there are only 27 Lighthouse Schools in the World.  Over 777 are in the process of trying to accomplish this goal.

The Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation model that acts like the operating system of a computer — it improves performance of all other programs. Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, The Leader in Me produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems, and increased engagement among teachers and parents. Better yet, The Leader in Me equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive in the 21st century economy.
