Incoming Freshman Registration

Welcome 2021-2022 LFHS Incoming Freshman Class of 2025!

Dear Incoming Freshmen Families,

Welcome to Lake Forest Community High School District 115. The following timeline of important events and deadlines has been developed to assist with the transition from middle school to LFHS. This registration timeline explains the process for incoming LFHS freshmen for the Fall of 2021.

Questions can be directed to Cindy Rogna, Educational Services,  or 847.582.7317.


Step 1: Pre-Registration

The first step in the process is to pre-register your student. This information will be imported into our student information system and allow us to begin planning for the upcoming school year. You will want to return to this page after completing the pre-registration process.

Please note: parents who currently have students registered at LFHS can use their existing login and password to pre-register their incoming Freshman.

Step 2: Review Curriculum Videos

These videos describe the curriculum offerings for freshmen within each department. The videos are hosted by our Instructional Directors and explain the academic options available to incoming 9th graders.

Student Stories

This video presentation will provide an exciting look at the opportunities that await your students  to get involved in the life of Lake Forest High School outside the classroom. LFHS students will share their experiences and important information will be shared about clubs, activities and athletic teams.
