Admissions Procedures


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.
