CONGRATULATIONS Lake City Academy on your new building!

Education has been a large part of Pearl Realty's focus when giving back to the community, and the Lake City Academy's vision of education makes a positive impact on so many people in our local area.  It was our pleasure to donate to this school.

As a Christian school with smaller class sizes we can better personalize our program for each student."
