Lakeside’s re-envisioning process

Lakeside’s re-envisioning encompasses a set of projects exploring new ways to answer the question: Within the framework of Lakeside’s mission and values, how do we teach students to make good decisions and act on them?

The projects include examining what students will learn through the overall educational program (the content, mindsets, competencies, and skills); the structure of the program itself (the length and organization of the academic year and school day); other special programs we don’t currently offer (internships, intensives, etc.); and the possibility of growing the size of the school.

Our goal is to do what Lakeside has done so well for 100 years: Prepare our students to live joyful lives of meaning and service in the world they find when they graduate.
