Lakeside Academy is a dynamic private school for student-athletes. Our curriculum combines the lessons learned in the classroom with our students’ passion for sports. The learning environment at Lakeside is based on small, technology enriched classrooms. The Ontario Curriculum is delivered by OCT certified teachers through our blended learning platform, which combines active, face-to-face learning and online activities, resources and communication.
EDUCATION is our first priority at Lakeside. Our classes never exceed 15 students, so that students receive more ONE-on-ONE instruction. We have the most current textbooks, assessments, and learning tools available. These include all of our leveled reading books and PM Bench Mark Assessment Tools. Our curriculum is flexible and student-centered, enabling students to be actively involved by providing multiple ways to access content and express their learning.
Lessons involve the use of interactive Smartboards, online resources, activity based stations, group projects, guided reading, and other creative methods of engaging active learning.
Great education begins with a great teacher. Mrs. Lee is an Ontario Certified Teacher with a focus on French linguistics. She has taught Kindergarten to Grade 10, in English schools as well as Core French and French Immersion settings. She has a special talent for engaging our students with creative activity-based lessons and learning stations, which is especially important for highly energetic and competitive kids

The Barn is equipped with one full size ice rink and one condensed ice rink for skating, shooting, goaltending and other hockey needs. The indoor turf is open year-round for lacrosse and soccer. The facility has a 7,000 square foot fitness and nutrition centre.
When Jonah is not playing sports, he pursues his interest in music. Inspired by DJ Snake, Jonah wants to learn how to DJ!
Our activity-based curriculum and athletic program is a big hit with Jonah and our active group of student-athletes. Playing competitive sports develops confidence, leadership, teamwork, and other important life lessons that support academic competence.
