This registration timeline explains the process for incoming LFHS freshmen for the Fall of 2024 (2024-2025 school year).

    Timeline for Incoming Freshman Registration


    Step 1: Pre-Registration

    The first step in the process is to pre-register your student. This information will be imported into our student information system and allow us to begin planning for the upcoming school year. You will want to return to this page after completing the pre-registration process.


    Please note: parents who currently have students registered at LFHS can use their existing login and password to pre-register their incoming Freshman.

    Step 3: Verification of Residency & Enrollment and Course Selection

    In order to attend Lake Forest High School, you MUST provide your student’s CERTIFIED, ORIGINAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE and at least THREE documents verifying residency to complete the enrollment process. These documents can be uploaded in the pre-registration process. If you are unable to upload these documents during Pre-Registration, please bring these documents with you to your students' course selection appointment. The documents can also be brought to Lake Forest High School for the Registrar to scan Monday through Friday 8 AM - 3 PM or the documents can be scanned and emailed in a PDF to Tiffany Smith, Registrar
