Le Rosey is a beyond insanely expensive boarding school with winter quarters in Gstaad, Switzerland. Chet was referencing Le Rosey.

We are also torn trying to decide which school (if either) to send our 2 children too. We live closer to LFCDS than to North Shore Country Day but know relatively little about the specific differences between the 2 schools in terms of philosophy and curriculum. Additionally, does anyone know where the majority of LFCDS kids end up going to high school (Lake Forest Academy?) What do people view as the advantages to either of these schools over the public schools on the North Shore? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Default Life after LFCDS

Kids who finish LFCDS go to a gamut of high schools .... public high schools in their local communities, boarding schools in-state and out of state, including Lake Forest Academy, private high schools in the city - Latin, U of C. As you can imagine, parents who send their children to this school can usually well afford to send their kids anywhere they would like for high school.

LFCDS does a remarkable job of preparing students for high school, and students compete well and integrate nicely across the board, private vs. public. Keep in mind that LFCDS is a very small school....grade levels have 40-50 students TOPS.....high school considerations, in my opinion, should consider the aptitude of the child as it relates to size.

I am not able to compare public vs. private in Lake Forest, as I have no experience with the public school system in LF.

I can tell you that both of our children have benefitted tremendously from life at LFCDS.

I am happy to more personally discuss the advantages of LFCDS or put you in contact with somebody at the school if you are interested.
