View the series of videos that highlight course offerings in all of our departments.

Dear Future Scouts!

We are excited to welcome you to Lake Forest High School! Please mark your calendars for the upcoming Class of 2022 introductory events.

Curriculum Information Video Series - Mid-January
In mid-January, we will release a series of videos that highlight course offerings in all of our departments. Instructional Directors will provide detailed information about student course options. Department videos will be released a week before The Scout Experience (see details below), providing ample time to review offerings and attend The Scout Experience with a better understanding of our courses. Feel free to watch the videos as many times as you want and reach out with questions. The videos and related contact information will be shared with all incoming families via email and also posted on the LFHS website, If for some reason you are unable to access the videos, highlighting LFHS course offerings, we will have a designated space during The Scout Experience for viewing.

All incoming freshmen and parents are invited to The Scout Experience. We are planning a fun night that will highlight all that we have to offer at LFHS. This evening will take place in the Fieldhouse and Competition Gym, LFHS East Campus, 1285 N.McKinley, Lake Forest.
