Day students enjoy an active academic, athletic, and co-curricular experience at Lakefield College School. They are encouraged to participate in all aspects of school life, and many stay for dinner and evening programs. The friendships that develop between day and boarding students enhance school spirit and the sense of community that is so unique to our school.
The parking lot outside the academic building is a busy place each morning. Many students arrive on the day student bus, others are dropped off by their parents, and some senior students drive themselves and friends. All make their way to an area in the academic building reserved for day students.
Day student facilities include academic lockers, male and female day student change rooms with sports lockers, washrooms and shower areas. Sports equipment, including skis, snowboards, and hockey bags, are kept in the day student sports storage room.
The school day begins with Chapel at 8:30 a.m., and continues with classes, athletics, and co-curricular activities 5:45 p.m. when the day bus leaves campus. In the evenings, day students are welcome to have dinner in the dining hall beginning at 5:30 p.m.
Since LCS is predominantly a boarding school, the campus does not slow down when classes and sports end. There is often music practice, drama rehearsals and clubs in the evenings. Dances, plays, award ceremonies and other special events often happen in the evenings. From 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., all boarding students are in their rooms at their desks for study. Armstrong and Brown House students may stay at school to participate in study in the Learning Commons, which remains open and supervised until 10:00 p.m.
