Founded in 1919, Lakeside School is an independent coeducational day school offering a broad curriculum in the liberal arts for a talented, highly motivated, and broadly diverse student body numbering 853 in grades 5–12. Among the defining features of Lakeside School is its intentional focus on developing young adults who will exercise wisdom, compassion, and leadership in a global society. Lakeside’s faculty and administrators continually create, evaluate, and refine programs that support the school’s unwavering commitment to academic excellence, global education, equity, and inclusion.
One of the nation’s leading independent schools, Lakeside School prepares students for the most selective colleges and universities. Lakeside’s reputation for academic excellence is further distinguished by its unparalleled experiential learning programs, which include outdoor education, local community service activities, and international service learning.
Located on two well-equipped campuses 10 miles north of downtown Seattle, Lakeside’s exceptional facilities, programs, and people are well supported by its $233 million endowment.
Although not a boarding school, Lakeside embodies many of the characteristics of a residential environment, with faculty who are deeply invested in the life of the school and students who are often on campus late into the evening. The warmth and depth of the relationships between teachers and students constitute a major strength of the school. Teachers and administrators enjoy a collaborative and collegial atmosphere and benefit from the school’s extraordinary commitment to their professional growth.
