Lakeside's First Century: A History of Purpose and Progress
In 2019-2020, Lakeside School celebrated its centennial. Throughout the first 100 years, members of our community were invested in making the school – and the world – a better place. In every decade, the school’s mission-driven purpose and embrace of progress 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.
