Lakeside School is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization. Since our beginning in 2006 the number of North Country families we serve has more than quadrupled. We are putting down sturdy roots, deepening our commitment to preserving childhood and building strong, healthy individuals and communities.  With this wonderful growth comes a need for additional resources. In order to keep tuition costs affordable for local families and offset our operating costs we rely on the generous contributions and support from community members, friends and family. Contact us for more information on any of these events and check our current calendar for dates. We hope you can join us for all of them! 

Make Black Kettle Farm

the site of your next celebration!

Lakeside School offsets its operating costs by renting the barn and surrounding grounds for special events. Click here for more information.
