Lakehill Annual Fund: 100% in 100 Days
The success of Lakehill Preparatory School is dependent upon the generosity of families, friends, faculty, and staff. Every dollar raised directly impacts the educational opportunities for every Lakehill student.

The Annual Fund supports:
  • First-rate faculty who have access to exceptional resources and training opportunities.
  • Dynamic academic programming that supports 21st century learners.
  • Extensive opportunities for students to engage in athletics, the arts, and their community.

From January 17 through April 26, our goal is to reach 100% parent participation in the Annual Fund campaign. That's 100% in 100 days.

Thank you to all who have already made a gift to our Annual Fund Campaign. For those who have not yet done so, today is a great day to support Lakehill Preparatory School by making a tax-deductible contribution.

Senior Spotlight
National Junior Honor Society Highlights Lakehill's Soon-to-be Graduates 

In an effort to reveal the hidden talents, personalities, and accomplishments of Lakehill's most experienced students, the National Junior Honor Society presents: 

NJHS Spotlight on Seniors
This week's senior: Alex Gentry
Alex Gentry is a senior at Lakehill Preparatory School. Alex has been at Lakehill since eighth grade and has made many memories in that time. One of his favorite moments was the Upper School Retreat because it provided a break from classes. While at Lakehill, Alex has participated in the International Club and Computer Club. He played soccer, basketball, and baseball, and he was in two musicals, Aladdin, Jr. and Bye Bye Birdie

History classes have been his favorite, especially the mini debates in Mrs. Blanchette’s class and Dr. O’s classes. Outside of school, Alex enjoys gaming, archery, and reading.

Alex hopes to attend Texas Tech University, joining his sister there. He plans to major in psychology, but is still undecided on his career path.

Alex wants to remind younger Warriors that “High school doesn’t last forever. As much as the stress and time left seem forever, it is very much temporary.” He advises them to "find a group of friends who will always stick with you and support you because loyal friends can help you through tough times.”
