Lakehill Prep Dallas Lakehill Preparatory SchoolIf you haven’t already gathered, NOW is the time to start researching schools for Fall 2020. In Dallas that can be a little overwhelming, since we have so many options. All of the major private schools focus on academic excellence, so you need to look closer to help decide which environment will be right for your child and your family. Here’s what I learned in my Lakehill Preparatory School deep dive:


  • K-12 (Lower School: K-4, Middle School: 5-8, High School: 9-12)
  • Co-ed
  • Established 1971
  • Located near White Rock Lake
  • No religious affiliation, all faiths welcome

Something Lakehill takes great pride in is that even from the youngest age, students have the opportunity to be involved in the school – older students mentor younger ones; first graders are excited for the Homecoming pep rally; Kindergarteners know who the quarterback is and get a high five when they see him. Talk about confidence boosting all around. And I love this, from a current Lakehill Prep Mom:

It was very important that our son be surrounded by diversity and not just an echo chamber of his own appearance, talents, and interests. We needed a school large enough for him to be able to explore any interest or sport, but small enough that I had no hesitations about dropping him off each morning.

The teachers work hard to really understand students, helping them grow into creative thinkers, confident learners, and compassionate kids. All this leads to smart high schoolers who know how to advocate for themselves. Isn’t that what we’re after here?


The mission of Lakehill Preparatory School is to guide motivated students to learn with curiosity, lead with confidence, and serve with compassion. Our challenging and nurturing educational community inspires students to become collaborative problem-solvers who live with integrity.

In a city with a lot of private school options, Lakehill is impressive in every category. And so many people have said that after touring schools around town, they walked into Lakehill Prep and “it just felt right.”

The BEST way to get a sense of the family-oriented, close-knit community at Lakehill Prep is to come to one of their upcoming admission coffee events (parents only for these!). You’ll get to see class in action, interact with students, talk to administrators, and tour the campus with student ambassadors.
