While many of our students attend selective colleges and universities, we are most interested in helping students find the college or university that is best suited for them. Along with strong academic and co-curricular offerings, The Lakeside School Upper School strives to promote leadership, service, and a sense of ownership and responsibility for the school and to prepare students for citizenship in the larger community.
A Lakeside education is an active partnership among parents, students and faculty that is focused on the academic, athletic and personal development of every student. The Lakeside faculty strives to be positive role models who live by the statement "students will not care how much you know if they do not know how much you care." For over 50 years The Lakeside School has prepared young people for success in college and in life.
