Lakefield College School Photo #2 - "Our campus is one of a kind. When you walk our beautiful grounds, surrounded by a picturesque lake, fields and forests with small village-like residences, you know what we mean. It doesn't feel like a school. And we like that."

Lakefield College School Photo #3 - "Not one day passes without thinking back on my time at LCS. Because of my experience, I studied at top universities in England, my Bachelors at Warwick Business School and my Masters at Cass Business School, securing my first "real" job at Rothschild. LCS recognized and realized a potential in me that I didn't know I had. LCS ALUMNUS
Lakefield College School Photo #4 - "Clubs, sports and extracurricular activities have been essential to my LCS life. I have participated in the Environmental Action Force, choir, band, Safe Spaces, art, photography and recreational sailing clubs. I have played on the Varsity Field Hockey and Volleyball teams and designed costumes for three plays. LCS has taught me the merit in exposing yourself to different experiences."
Lakefield College School Photo #5 - "What I like best about my school is that it is a place where I am free to be myself. LCS not only encourages difference, it actually thrives on it. High school can be a struggle between who you want to be and who you really are. Lakefield made me feel comfortable in my own skin from the very beginning."

The best thing about LCS is our people, the warm community and commitment of our students and staff.
These elements lie at the core of a LCS education and the "pride of school" radiates from so many who have experiences here.
Our beautiful campus, a fantastic 315-acre outdoor classroom with a lake, fields, forests and small residences, enhances this pride.
It doesn`t feel like a school at all. Yet, our graduates receive offers of admission to exceptional universities around the world, following their passion in a variety of fields.
