The Lahore College of Arts and Science was conceived to strike the status quo in Pakistan’s educational system. The founders hoped to form a facility for female education. In September 1987, LACAS became the premier school to offer A Level exams to girls. Moreover, the school has made its way to retune the educational benchmark and reach novel heights. The educational institute’s mission is to guarantee that each student achieves his or her potential as they build self-confidence and honesty while accepting their individual traits and respecting diversity. The school believes this will lead the students towards independent thinking and motivate them to learn forever.
LACAS distinguishes itself through its activities. The school has been the focus of leading newspapers as they revived the traditional annual stage plays and brought out the idea of parliamentary-style debates in Lahore. The school has been aiding charities such as Shaukat Khanum and Sundas Foundation as they march towards their dream of bringing true equality to Pakistan.
The main school is located at 302 F/11, M.A Johar Town, Lahore. The LACAS Early Years Programme (REACH), which offers an international standard of education for children, is offered in campuses: Johar Town Campus, Burki Campus, Canal Side Girls Campus, Gulberg Girls Campus, Model Town Campus, and Gujranwala Campus.
