School Profile

Lakefield College School provides an enriching co-educational day and boarding experience for 375 students from over 43 countries in Grades 9 through 12. At LCS, we believe young people learn and mature best when they are encouraged to embrace their individuality within a richly diverse and supportive community. With one of the largest waterfront campuses among Canadian boarding schools, our programs also leverage the benefits of being outside every day, including a deepened connection with, and responsibility to, nature, increased personal well-being and better academic performance.

We know that a personalized, balanced academic and co-curricular program, filled with authentic and experiential learning opportunities, helps students to discover their strengths and purpose—to become their best self.

At LCS, school life is grounded in a philosophy and House model that puts community first. Caring teachers, advisors, Heads of Houses and coaches challenge and enable students to reach their individual potential, preparing them with the skills and characteristics necessary to lead fulfilling lives—caring individuals ready to connect with and contribute to their community in meaningful ways.
