An Independent School • Grades 5-12


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


As of May 1, 2020 we are no longer accepting new applications. Applications in progress have through May 29, 2020 to complete. 

Lakeside students have a demonstrated joy for learning and a record of academic success within the context of their own experience; a willingness to be open-minded and positively engaged in a diverse community; and the skills, potential, and desire to progress within our program.

If you feel Lakeside may be a good fit, the next step is to create an admission account in Ravenna, our online application management system. In Ravenna, families manage their application, complete required forms, and request teacher evaluations and transcripts.
