LCS Named One of Canada’s Most Advanced™ Corporate Cultures of 2021

On November 25, 2021, Lakefield College School was named one of Canada’s Most Admired™ Corporate Cultures of 2021 by Waterstone Human Capital.

Waterstone Human Capital is a leading cultural talent management firm that recognizes organizations and CEOs for fostering a sophisticated and well-functioning corporate culture. In their review of organizational cultures across Canada, Waterstone Human Capital identified Lakefield College School as an institution that puts people and culture at the forefront of everything they do while driving growth and performance.

This landmark achievement is bolstered by the establishment of a new record. Lakefield College School is the first Canadian independent school to win this prestigious award in the program’s 10-year history.

Head of School and Foundation, Anne-Marie Kee said of the school’s ethos, “At the core of the LCS experience is an extraordinarily strong culture built upon our eight school values: development of the whole person, individuality, learning, joy, inclusive, caring community, trust, service, and environmental responsibility. While our culture is continuously evolving in the context of a rapidly changing world, the core elements of that culture have endured for generations. We are regularly told by alumni who return to campus over 50 years after their graduation that although many of the buildings and the people are new to them, the essential ‘spirit’ and ‘feeling’ at the heart of the school remain unchanged.”

Lakefield College School is thrilled to be formally recognized for its organizational culture and reputation for fostering a positive and productive work environment.

Our culture is the driving force that propels and sustains our organizational performance. As a not-for-profit educational institution, our success measures are much broader than simply financial results
