His fame, however, is due to the fact that he is a brilliant student who has participated in several local science fairs and won awards for the same. He has not only been featured on local news articles for his academic achievements, but also received the President's Award for Academic Excellence in 2019.
Lucas Veintimilla completed his elementary and middle school education from Saint Peter’s School, a private catholic school, from where he graduated as a top student of his class in 2019.

Lucas Veintimilla, who has always been passionate about environmental science, began working on various science projects that have a positive impact on others and the environment when he was in the fifth grade. Since then, he has participated in local science fairs every year and has secured the first place at school science fairs each year as well. This achievement helped him qualify for the Dutchess County Regional Science Fair, where he has been presenting his science projects for the past six years since 2015. In 2016, as a fifth-grade student, he won the third place at the regional science fair and was mentioned with other student scientists in an article by the Poughkeepsie Journal. Later that year, he was again mentioned in another article by the publication in a list of grade 6-8 students who had made submissions for the 2016 Scary Stories Contest.
