An Independent School • Grades 5-12

Soak it in

Summer is a time to explore, play, and learn – in the classroom and out of it.

Summer School Programs

Lakeside offers four different summer programs that nurture and develop students' passions. Each summer, over 600 students from the greater Seattle area spend between one to six weeks on campus, enjoying thoughtful and engaging classrooms, fun outdoor activities and sports, and quality time with their peers and teachers.

Financial aid is available for all summer programs. LEEP is free.

As of Dec. 11, Lakeside plans to hold in-person courses and camps for summer 2021. Any program updates will be shared on this webpage and directly with those registered for summer programs. Cancellations by participants or the school due to COVID-19 will be fully refunded. Lakeside is committed to student and employee safety and following public health guidelines.
