Lakeside's First Century: A History of Purpose and Progress
In 2019-2020, Lakeside School celebrates its centennial. Throughout the past 100 years, members of our community have been invested in making the school – and the world – a better place. In every decade, the school’s mission-driven purpose and embrace of progress have contributed to its success.
Today’s Lakeside School is the result of two separate schools: St. Nicholas was founded in 1910 and Moran-Lakeside was founded in 1919. The two institutions merged in 1971, leading to a period of rapid evolution and Lakeside School taking its place as one of the nation’s foremost independent schools.
Join us for centennial celebrations throughout the academic year and learn more about Lakeside's first century through the interactive timelines below.
