How to Enroll Your Child in a Class

  • Thank you for your interest in Lakeside. To apply, please follow these 3 steps:

    1. Tour the School

    2. Submit an Application

    • The application fee is $40.00. Applications are provided at the conclusion of the on-site tour and considered filed on the date the application fee is paid.
    • Children must be 2 years and 6 months on the first day of school. No diapers or pull-ups are permitted at school.
    • Preferential admission priority is given to current Lakeside Presbyterian church members, siblings, referrals and alumni, respectively. All other applications are considered in the order filed. Parent interviews are not required and enrollee children are not required to come in for a play date.

    3. Communication

    • After your application is filed, your point of contact will be the Enrollment Coordinator. We typically confirm Fall Session admissions by the end of February.
    • Due to the high volume of applications, we do not notify denied applicants; however, pending applicants are welcome to contact the school to check their status.
  • Inclusivity

    • Lakeside does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, ethnic origin, special needs, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression in administration of its employment policies, educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and/or other school administered programs.

    Summer Mini Camps

    • We offer eight weeks of Summer camps. Summer camps enrollment is generally lighter relative to regular sessions. If your incoming child meets the age requirement, Summer camps is a great way to acclimate them to the school, teachers and with the added benefit of a smaller class size. For summer session dates, please contact (415) 564-5044 or email Vivian Ta at
