An Independent School • Grades 5-12

International Applicants


Read the following information before starting an international application to ensure Lakeside is an appropriate match for your student.


While Lakeside School is able to accept applications from international students for grades 5-11. We are not a boarding school nor is our program geared toward students moving to the Seattle area without a parent or legal guardian. At least one parent or legal guardian must be living with the student in the Seattle area. This is nonnegotiable.

International applicants are students who attend school internationally AND are not citizens or permanent residents of the United States.

Other than language courses, all classes at Lakeside are in English. Students must be fluent in written and spoken English at the time of application.

Please read the section below before contacting the admissions office, as we will likely direct you back to this page for responses.
