College & Career Counseling

Preparation for the college application process begins when our students enter as freshmen.

Our desire is that by the time our students head off to pursue their future, they are academically and socially prepared for the challenges that will come their way. This is a highly individualized process and counselors will work to make sure that students keep as many options as possible open until it comes time to narrow down to a smaller list of selected schools.

College and Career Resource Center

The College and Career Resource Center offers an extensive library that provides a wide variety of resource materials and reference books to assist with the college and career selection process. Jennifer Gleason is available from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm Monday through Friday during the school year to assist students and parents and answer any questions and may also be reached by phone at 847-582-7342.


On behalf of Lake Forest High School students, staff, and the Career Fair Advisory Committee, we cordially invite you to participate as an Employer Partner at the Third Annual LFHS Informational Career Fair on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm in the LFHS Competition Gym. Last year, 79 businesses and 943 students participated in the LFHS Career Fair. This event is designed to provide our students with experiences that will enhance their college and career readiness. It will help them understand the inner workings of businesses, the different career options available, and how to best prepare for the field of their choice. It is also a great time for businesses to recruit student interns for the summer!
