"Coming to Lakefield College School in Grade 10 was such a pivotal moment in my life, one that I believe has forever changed my view on what I am capable of and of my ability to make a difference in the world. At LCS, we are surrounded by amazing teachers and incredible opportunities, and every day I am pushed to grow as a student and as a person. What more could a student possibly hope for from their education! I am truly appreciative of the incredible impact made by our teachers who inspire us to be ourselves, be leaders, and to believe that anything is possible."

"It was the leaders at the school, students in the School Life Class, my teachers, the staff—it was the people that made The Grove feel like home to me—they have been my Lakefield difference. I aspired to be this person for new incoming students and that is what I worked towards in my final year at Lakefield. The lessons I have learned will stay with me forever."

"Lakefield College School is an excellent place to learn. You can genuinely tell that all of the teachers really care about you. Whether you’re struggling to keep up, or at the top of the class, they’ll keep you engaged and make sure you learn as much as possible. Furthermore, you are not just taught facts, figures and rules, your teachers ensure critical skills that help you beyond the course, whether it’s how to critically analyze information or how to intelligently voice your opinion."

"What LCS has given me in life is unquantifiable. The friendships I made, the education I received, the trips I went on, the people I met— and the people I continue to meet through the Grove community—all got me where I am today; which is sitting in the boardroom of the law firm where I work as a lawyer. My life wouldn’t be where it is without LCS."

"To say that Lakefield has been the highlight of my high school career would be a complete understatement. Lakefield has completely changed my life from mediocre to extraordinary and exciting. I have never truly felt about school the way I do currently. LCS was my home, the staff and students my family."
