Lakeside has a generous and extensive need-based financial-aid program that supports qualifying families with incomes from $10,000 to over $250,000. Financial assistance for recipients extends beyond tuition and covers additional school-related costs including, but not limited to, food, books, bus, laptop, and field trips. For additional information, including average awards by income, click here and select the Policies and Income Commitments tab.
It's delicious! Faculty, staff, and students all eat on campus in either the Middle or Upper School cafeteria. Hot breakfast and lunch are available every day, with many snack choices. There are vegetarian and vegan options, and we also have "Meatless Mondays" each week. Students can choose to bring lunch from home, purchase their entire lunch on campus, or do a combination of both. See a sample menu here!
Lakeside has an extensive and personalized college counseling process that begins, in earnest, spring of a student's junior year. Our goal is for students to enroll at a school where they will thrive. Visit our college counseling page to learn more.
