Free to Act

free to act


In 2021, with the last of our mortgage loans paid off, your LLHS became debt free. This allows us to be Free to Act! We now have the privilege of planning for the future with building renovation and upgrades.

Why update? A number of places in the school are original—and kept in great shape thanks to our buildings and grounds team. However, with decades of use and expanding enrollment, it's time to add a fresh look, while improving functionality. 


What's on our list? After the debt was paid off, teachers and staff were invited to share what areas of LLHS needed some attention. After all, they are the ones working in this space the most.


Some of their ideas have already been implemented, such as a modification of the faculty workroom, locker room renovation, and updated media center/study hall space. Others include a two year vison for a West Gym Renovation and Cafeteria/Entryway enhancement. Then what? Free to dream!

Phase 1—West Gym Reno

Phase 2—Caf/Entry Addition

Phase 3—We're already planning for and praying about next steps and wise spending in the future.

Phase 1—Our West Gym Reno will accommodate approximately 650 guests with the new seating plan. In addition, this allows us to fill our practical need for a worship space for chapel. Your generous gifts will help Lakeside move that much closer to this new and improved chapel and fine arts seating experience for our students, staff, families and visitors. We kicked off this stage with Giving Tuesday in 2021—and you responded with over $54,000 in gifts. 


Phase 2—The cafeteria hasn't changed since Lakeside moved to this campus. It's longevity is a testimony to the care of it. That said, our student body has grown and we could use some more space for students. In addition, an entryway would allow another space for students, meetings, and provide a focal point for our building.
