We explain what Lakeside’s re-envisioning is and why it is important, and highlight upcoming milestones.
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.

Review what's happened so far, from the start of the re-envisioning through September 2019.
We introduce the concepts of competencies and mindsets and preview November opportunities for students and parents/guardians to provide feedback to the re-envisioning task force.
Head of School Bernie Noe unveils the six competencies and seven mindsets we believe our school should focus on teaching students over the course of their time here.
