Lakeside charges yearly tuition at two levels: WELS Federated rate and Non-Federated rate. This reflects our belief that members of our federation churches are already supporting Lakeside with first-fruit offerings to their church, which in turn supports Lakeside's mission with monthly offerings. See below for a downloadable/printable version of the info on this page.
Lakeside Lutheran High School tuition is inclusive of all textbooks, equipment, testing supplies, facility fees, technology fees, transportation fees, admission to home athletic contests (except WIAA tournament events), student activity fees, class dues and initial Chromebook. The tuition rates do not include the mandatory enrollment fee, which is charged at the time of enrollment and is based on the date of enrollment.**

Financial aid at Lakeside Lutheran is based strictly on financial need. All students, future and present, must apply for financial aid before March 1 for full consideration for the upcoming school year.
Financial Aid Application
LLHS is working with SmartAid for our financial aid servicing needs. This is the financial aid division of SmartTuition, our tuition management service. All students are eligible to apply. The Financial Aid application site is available either of the following ways:
- the link in your enrollment confirmation e-mail1
- directly at https://smartaidforparents.com2 (School code is 13588)
There is no application fee for financial aid.
Lakeside's Financial Aid Committee will review the recommendations made by Smart Aid in late spring and communicate any awards to you at that time. If you plan to apply for the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP), you should also apply for financial aid in case your student does not receive a WPCP voucher. Please note that a Smart Aid application and a WPCP application are two distinct processes that do not work for both systems. You MUST apply for each separately.
1If you have completed your enrollment/re-enrollment through InfoSnap, you will/have received an e-mail notifying you that Financial Aid applications are open.
2Whether you have or have not completed enrollment, you may apply for aid via the direct link above. We encourage you to complete your enrollment before January 31 to minimize the enrollment fee; the $100 fee increases for enrollments received after January 31. We are not able to offer you an aid package before the Financial Aid Committee meets in late spring, and then, only if you have completed the application and submitted all documents.
