Welcome to Lakefield College School
Why we love it
Good to know
LCS offers credit and enrichment programs that leverage expertise in 3 areas: providing challenging and fun academic and recreational opportunities to learn in and through the outdoors; inspiring students in a beautiful natural environment with state-of-the-art facilities on 315 acres of waterfront campuses; and focusing on community-minded leadership and character education. Spend every day outdoors—on the water, in the forest, at our farm—learning, making friends, and challenging yourself. All programs, excepting the 5-day intensives, offer the opportunity to earn an Ontario Secondary School credit.
Lakefield College School's state of the art facilities feature air conditioned student residences, a dining hall, gym, dance studio, tennis, basketball and beach volleyball courts, high and low outdoor ropes courses, indoor climbing wall, 5 km of wooded trails, a series of sports and playing fields, and access to a broad variety of water sports at our 7,000 ft. waterfront on Lake Katchewanooka.
Why study at Lakefield College School?
LCS offers a transformative experience founded in authentic learning—focused on individual student strengths and a powerful natural environment. Students who attend Lakefield College School’s summer programs are provided with a well rounded learning experience that extends far beyond the classroom, encouraging them to explore and have fun in nature, engage with their peers, remain active, and earn a course credit. Some of the flagship courses offered at LCS include Learning Languages through the Outdoors and From Seed to Table: Adventures in Eco-Farming.
Learning Languages Through the Outdoors
Lakefield College School's Learning Languages through the Outdoors program offers students a unique opportunity to earn a credit in four weeks and improve their English or French language proficiency while enjoying the benefits of a Canadian summer outdoor experience including wilderness skills, paddling expeditions and overnight camping.
From Seed to Table: Adventures in Eco-Farming
This program provides the opportunity to learn about food production and eco-farming through hands-on adventures on our school farm. Students plant, nurture, and harvest greens, root vegetables, and more, learning first-hand about the business of running a farm, the value of sustainability, and the joy of preparing and consuming food that they have grown.
Mornings and evenings are devoted to the farm program; afternoons are spent in recreational activities on our waterfront and campus. Students earn an Ontario Secondary School interdisciplinary course credit (IDC30).
