Summer School Programs registration for Lakeside students and children of alumni opens at 8 a.m., Feb. 1. Spots for the most popular courses tend to fill up quickly, so check out our offerings – both new courses and returning favorites – at, and mark your calendar for Feb.1!

Our high school academic program has a wide range of for-credit and skill-building classes. Many Upper School students take Summer School courses to advance more quickly in a subject area, balance a busy school-year schedule, or simply focus intensively on one subject at a time. Our offerings for summer 2019 include new classes such as Spanish III: GSL in Costa Rica; Digital Music Production; Computer Science 2 and 3; English 10; Science Fiction and the Future of Humanity; and Lakeside Summer Research Institute. We also continue to offer Algebra II; Precalculus; Physics; Biology; United States History; World History I: The Human Web; 9th/10th Grade Writing; The College Application Essay; and ACT/SAT Prep. Check our high school summer course page for a complete list of offerings and dates.

Does your middle school student dream of being a DJ? App designer? Doctor? Filmmaker? At our Investigative Learning Camp, a STEAM-focused camp serving rising 5th-8th grade students, students can take hands-on, inquiry-based courses taught by passionate educators, and then relax in the afternoon with fun activities. New courses for 2019 include App Lab; Medical Mysteries; Java for 7th and 8th Graders; Filmmaking; and 3D Graphic Design. Our afternoon activities include International Cooking; Makerspace; Yoga; and Musical Theater. Learn more about the classes and schedule (8:30 a.m. to 3:30, with aftercare available until 5:30 p.m.) on our Investigative Learning Camp course page.

We also offer a variety of week-long middle school athletics camps, led by our amazing varsity Lakeside coaches!
