An Independent School • Grades 5-12


Our admissions team is here to help
you learn about Lakeside and assist you
throughout the application process.

Thank you for your interest in Lakeside School!

Lakeside students are scholars, athletes, artists, musicians, community-service volunteers, entrepreneurs, and much, much more. They have an appreciation for excellence, respect for their peers, and a commitment to taking responsibility for learning.

Our students hail from over 200 different schools – public, independent, religiously affiliated, and homeschool – and a variety of communities, from Auburn to Issaquah to Everett. We believe that diversity and a range of perspectives is a critical component of educational excellence, and would not be achievable without a strong commitment to financial aid. Lakeside offers tuition aid and other financial support to over 30 percent of the students at our school. We strive to provide an equitable learning environment for all students, which means partnering with families to make sure that every student has access to what they need to succeed.


Learn how our academic curriculum builds on best practices in teaching and learning, while sustaining core values that will prepare you to thrive in the global community – and then see what that looks like in the classroom. Discover our arts program and attend a performance or show. Learn what fuels Lakeside Athletics and check out one of our 23 sports teams in action. Meet the inspiring faculty, coaches, and staff who guide students in their learning.

Want to learn more about what it’s like to be a Lakesider? Check out the student experience page, where you can see what Lakeside students say are important parts of their day – from getting to school and picking up breakfast with friends to hanging out with their advisory group and working with classmates on service learning.


In fall 2018, The Downtown School: A Lakeside School will open for students entering grades 9 and 10. The admissions process for Lakeside School and The Downtown School are entirely separate. The Lakeside School admissions office cannot assist with The Downtown School applications. Students can apply to either or both schools using Ravenna, and will receive an admissions decision specific to the school. If you are interested in learning more about The Downtown School and its admissions process, please contact


Lakeside School does not discriminate on the basis of age, color, creed, disability, marital status, national or ethnic origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, use of a trained guide dog or service animal by a person with a disability, or genetic information. This policy applies to all areas of student concerns (admissions, athletics, educational policies, financial aid, and other school-administered programs) as well as to all areas of personnel and employee concerns and hiring, discipline, promotion, and termination.

Come visit us for an event or a tour. There are so many aspects of the school that can only be experienced by visiting our campuses and talking with students and teachers in person.

Finally, review the application process, and then start your application on Ravenna. We look forward to meeting you!
