August 6, 2019

Booth D. Kyle, Associate Head of School & Admissions and Financial Aid Director, Lakeside School (WA) Learn about Lakeside School’s journey with the Character Skills Snapshot in its inaugural year, from the debate surrounding requiring it for admission to its value in the process. Discover how the Seattle-based school used The Snapshot to supplement their interview and reading processes, added score reports into their proprietary database, and is now implementing it as a baseline measure of self-awareness for incoming middle schoolers. Hear about The Snapshot's alignment with Lakeside's academic initiatives and how the first validity study will impact the committee process moving forward.
