As a predominantly Canadian day and boarding school (more than 70% of our students are Canadian citizens), LCS believes their community is strengthened by the diversity of their students. The school hopes to grow its offers of admission to Canadian students from coast to coast. Their goal is to ensure that deserving and outstanding young people are able to participate in the unique educational experience they offer, and they are committed to providing financial needs-based assistance to students who otherwise would be unable to attend the school. Last year, over $1.9 million was offered in needs-based financial assistance to over 1 in 4 students at LCS.
