Thanks to everyone who expressed interest in joining the Lakeside community this year! The school is fully enrolled, and we have ceased accepting admissions applications for the 2019-2020 school year. Those who have applications in process have until Friday, May 31 to complete their application to be considered for a place in the alternate pool.
The alternate pool is Lakeside’s version of a wait list. Basically, it’s an unranked group of talented students who may be offered admission if a place becomes available. While a few students from the alternate pool were ultimately offered admission earlier this season, it’s likely that no more spots will open up this spring. Lakeside’s Middle School (grades 5-8) remains fully enrolled and the Upper School (grades 9-12) continues to be slightly overenrolled. Looking ahead to summer, only unpredictable circumstances would cause a spot to open up (such as a current student moving out of state).
I will write with another update in mid-June. In the meantime, I hope you’ve enjoyed the good weather and that you continue to have a great spring.
Thanks again for your interest in Lakeside!
