Stanford Lake College was founded in 1998. It was originally a hotel called Troutwaters Inn and the hotel rooms were repurposed into boarding houses. Since then, several blocks of classrooms and extra boarding houses have been built to accommodate the growing school.


The 2014 Matric class continued the school’s tradition of achieving a 100% pass rate in the Independent Examinations Board exams. They also achieved a 100% University Entrance pass. The school motto is Labor Et Integritas which means “Labour And Integrity”.
