An Independent School • Grades 5-12

Lakeside students benefit from a professional team of college counselors, access to college admissions officers from around the world, and a steady flow of information and support to families. Upper School students work one-on-one with a counselor in a multiyear process to identify schools that meet their goals and interests and navigate the complexities of highly selective admissions.
