Hear from the Porcar Family

Hear from the Porcar Family on why they choose Lakefield College School for their family. 

"LCS is very professional and at the same time like a big family surrounded by nature.  LCS encourages students to enjoy the beauty of nature, and to have a balanced spirit where knowledge, social life, sports and arts support the growth of future talents."
If you had to tell a friend one reason why you chose LCS, what would you say?
Alejandra (our first daughter) chose LCS for Grade 10, after interviewing with many schools. When we asked Alejandra why, she said "they are really interested in me, I only had this feeling with LCS." Alejandra went to LCS for three lovely academic years, and Maria (our second daughter) is following the same path.

What is one word that best describes LCS? Why did you choose that word?
Curiosity: desire to know. Both of our daughters arrived at LCS when they were 15. As teenagers, the challenge is to generate curiosity within them, a desire to learn and experience. We are very proud because both of them have developed curiosity and this makes them grow.

In what ways have you seen your child grow and develop as a result of their experience at LCS?
We have seen that Alejandra and Maria are achieving a high level of self-confidence because of the LCS experience. In addition, they are laughing and enjoying themselves, like kids, with many memorable moments and adventures. We love to see them really happy.

How is LCS preparing your child for university or life (or both)?
Alejandra is studying architecture at university and received a scholarship. LCS was supportive from the very beginning, and helped to identify the right career (which was a challenge for her), and to apply to the universities of her choice.

After joining the LCS community, what did you find most surprising about the school?
The LCS team is amazing, and we have had the opportunity to see it very clearly throughout 2020. They are able to do the best in the most complex of scenarios, always with students as the main focus in everything they do - this makes the student feel at home.

What advice would you give to students just entering LCS?
Enjoy it, it is a privilege. And get to know everybody.

How has your family benefitted from being a part of the LCS community?
We have very fluent communication with LCS, and support for everything (e.g., birthdays, medical appointments, advice). This helps us to feel close to our daughters despite the physical distance, and we know they are in the best hands.
