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.

The big event will take place Friday, May 20th! This week’s question is, which teams will make it to the stage?  During the this phase of the Business Incubator process, 10 self-selected student teams will make their Academic Pitches to our panel of judges on May 12 during class. At that time the judges will determine which teams will move on to Pitch Night, the ultimate competition for recognition and financial awards. The teams moving on will be announced on May 13 and will participate in Pitch Night on May 20 starting at 7 PM. This year's event will take place in the Raymond Moore Auditorium at LFHS and the entire community is invited to attend. We will also livestream the event. RSVP TODAY FOR UPDATES BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER THIS YEAR'S LIVE EVENT.
