College Entrance Exams
The ACT is accepted by all 4-year colleges and universities in the United States and is the test recommended first for LLHS students. Some Lakeside students choose to take both the SAT and the ACT.
Lakeside will administer the ACT (with the writing component) on campus. The date for this year's administration is Tuesday, March 21, 2023. All current juniors will take the ACT on this date unless they have been opted out by a parent. There is no additional cost for families to take part in this testing opportunity, and there is no registration required. If a family chooses to have their student test again, it is the responsibility of the family to sign them up. This can be done through the ACT website.
The ACT also offers a free online test preparation program that is called ACT Academy. Lakeside students have this at their disposal and only need to create an account to get started. If you have any questions about the ACT, please contact Mr. Rosenau at [email protected]

College Scholarship Opportunities
Wisconsin Academic Excellence Scholarship
Lakeside Lutheran High School will give the Academic Excellence Scholarship to the student with the highest GPA after 7 semesters. The GPA will be carried out to three decimal places. If there is a tie in the GPA the following criteria will be used to break the tie:
1. The ACT test composite score will be used to break the tie. If the ACT is taken more than one time, an individual’s highest composite score will be used.
2. If a tie still exists the GPA will be multiplied by the total number of credits earned.
3. If a tie still exists at this point the scholarship committee of Lakeside Lutheran High School will choose the Academic Excellence Scholarship winner.
