The LCS Renovation & Addition Project was completed in December 2021! Check back for updated photos and descriptions of our new spaces in Spring 2022.


In Fall 2020, the Lake Country School Board of Trustees voted to move forward with Phase 1 of the Facilities Master Plan and undergo construction on the front entrance of the urban campus.

You may remember that we were slated to begin construction in Spring 2020 but voted to postpone due to the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic and related financial uncertainties. The project stems from the 2013 Strategic Plan and subsequent development of a Facilities Master Plan. It is the first in a series of renovations that will occur over the next 10-15 years. The positive impacts to LCS are numerous as listed below and reflect the LCS values of: Love of Work, Integrity, Partnership, Community, Responsibility, and Stewardship.


The main parts of this project are:

  • New Entrance - more welcoming and safer
  • Gathering Space/Interior Courtyard
  • Innovation Lab on New 3rd Floor
  • New Research Center
  • Staff Room
  • Conference Room
  • Wellness Coordinator Office
  • Material Making Room
  • Reconfigured Cafeteria
  • More Extended Day Space
  • Administrative Offices
  • New Elevator
  • Set-up for Future Renovations


The LCS Board of Trustees conducted thorough financial modeling and assessed the risks of moving forward with this work. We evaluated whether or not this project supports the mission, vision, and values of Lake Country School. Given all of these considerations and considerable discussion, the board voted unanimously to move forward with construction in the spring of 2021!
