School Profile


Abeunt Studia in Mores, inscribed in stone over the main entrance, is the Lake Forest High School motto. Literally translated from the Latin it would read: Abeunt (“they leave” or “they go away from”), Studia (“eagerness, fondness, desire, striving after, devotion to, or “zeal”), in (“in” or “into”) and Mores (“morality, philosophy,” or “ethics”). Hence, it could be translated to read:

“They leave, striving after morality.”
