LFHS Foundation

The Lake Forest High School Foundation is dedicated to supporting, enriching and enhancing the LFHS experience for all students, faculty and staff by investing in educational excellence.

What is Educational Excellence?

Since 2002, the LFHS Foundation has awarded more than 300 grants, investing over $2.5 million. Over the years we have built a partnership with LFHS teachers, students and administrators to assist in creating a top-notch learning environment for all. Limited only by their imagination, teachers, administrators, staff and students apply for grants each year. The Foundation carefully vets these requests to ensure that we are making strategic investments in educational excellence. Our grants have provided cutting-edge technology, created collaborative learning spaces, supported unique learning opportunities for students and staff, supplied world-class curricular materials across all departments and transformed teaching and learning. This video provides an overview of the impact the LFHS Foundation has had over the years.

LFHS Foundation News

For two decades the LFHS Foundation has awarded grants that have transformed traditional classrooms, positively impacted how teachers teach, increased student collaboration, and provided innovative, real-world, hands-on learning experiences. This spring we will be hosting the 12th Annual Spring Luncheon & Online Auction Celebrating Educational Excellence. This event is one of the ways we raise the capital needed to fund grants. We hope you will join us for this lovely event. We will be sharing more details about our plans in February.
