We do not share our acceptance rate. Knowing any school's acceptance rate adds to anxiety for students and families in an admission process, and it does not give any information about who Lakeside admits. Lakeside's admission and financial aid team responds to the needs of the school (see: the response to how we make admissions decisions), and this means we look for different things each year based on what we need to balance the grade. We encourage you to register for an Admissions at Lakeside webinar with Director of Admissions and Financial Aid Wellesley Wilson to hear more about how Lakeside makes admissions decisions each year.
International applicants, to all grade levels, must take the TOEFL iBT if the primary language of instruction at the applicant’s current academic institution is not English. We do not accept the TOEFL Jr. Lakeside looks closely at the score for each section rather than the total. The internet-based TOEFL exam (iBT) has four subsections, with a grading scale for each section from 1 to 30 (30 being the best possible score).
