Founded in 1879, Lakefield College School is a leader among Ontario’s independent boarding and day schools and prides itself on its reputation for innovative teaching and academic excellence. 

LCS is a co-educational high school committed to bringing out the best in each of its students and offers a boarding school experience designed to maximize the education of the whole student - academically, socially, emotionally and physically.
A rigorous academic program prepares our high school students for university. Our spectacular 355 acre campus, located just 1.5 hours northeast of Toronto, allows students to enjoy a variety of sports, an enriching co-curricular program and provides our faculty with unique facilities to offer experiential learning opportunities across the curriculum.

LCS has a proud 137-year history of educating some of Canada's finest young men and women. Our graduates go on to successful careers in all aspects of business, politics, social services, academia, and the arts.  We are particularly proud to have been the alma mater for His Royal Highness The Duke of York, His Majesty The King of Spain and four Rhodes Scholars.
It is our promise to continue to protect, nurture and grow the programs that make LCS the special boarding and day high school that it is, and to continue delivering a learning experience rated one of the best among private schools in Ontario.
