Admissions Statement

(Updated - March 20, 2019)
 

The Lakeside School seeks students from all ethnic, cultural, racial, religious and socio-economic backgrounds who can benefit from a challenging academic program and make positive contributions to the school community. Students are considered for admission on the basis of, but not limited to, achievement, academic testing, attendance, teacher/administrator evaluations and citizenship. Other factors that are considered include interests, talents, classroom scheduling capabilities, and space availability.
 

As an educational institution concerned with the development of the whole student, The Lakeside School seeks to enroll students who are capable of achieving success inside the framework of a college preparatory curriculum. Although children of alumni, siblings of alumni, siblings of currently enrolled students, and children of faculty and staff are given preference for admission when possible, the overriding consideration is what is best for the personal development of each individual student. All students must meet the enrollment criteria outlined in the Academic Checklist for New Applicants (Preschool / K-12).

Admissions Procedures

(Updated - March 20, 2019)


The Admissions Representative, upon request of the prospective family, mails an information packet. Usually, an appointment is scheduled for the prospective family to tour the school. After receiving the completed application (see links above) and fee, the Admissions Representative establishes an admissions file for each prospective student. The prospective family arranges for transcripts, teacher/administrator evaluations to be sent to the attention of the Admissions Department, and schedules an admissions test for the prospective student to be taken at The Lakeside School. In addition, if the student is applying for grades 9-12, a drug test must be scheduled at The Lakeside School. When the file is complete, the Admissions Team reviews the file and informs the applicant of the school’s decision.

 

Once a grade level is filled, The Lakeside School will maintain an applicant list for prospective students who qualify for admission, but are not offered spaces due to classroom limitations. If a vacancy occurs at any time, the Admissions Team will review the applications of those students on the applicant list and contact their families.
