Incoming Freshman Registration 2018-2019

Welcome 2018-19 LFHS Incoming Freshman - Class of 2022!

Dear Incoming Freshman 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 2018.

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


Step 1: Pre-Registration

The first step in the process is to pre-register your student by Monday, January 22, 2018 in order for you to receive important information regarding your student's course selection. 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.

Step 2: Schedule Course Selection Appointment

After you have pre-registered your student, you will need to schedule your course selection appointment. The district will email username and passwords for individual students to make a course selection appointment with their counselor. Questions can be directed to LFHS Helpdesk 847-582-7370 between 7:30am - 3:30pm, Monday - Friday.

Tuesday, January 23, 2018 - Email sent to incoming freshman with unique username/password information, including the name of your student’s counselor.

Thursday, January 25 - Thursday, February 1, 2018 - Online course selection appointments open. Using the username and password that was emailed to you, make an individual appointment with your student’s counselor.

Please note: Students with an IEP will be contacted by their 8th grade special education case manager to schedule an IEP transition meeting at Lake Forest High School to review and finalize supports and select courses. Students with 504 plans will be contacted by the case managers at the middle school to schedule an annual review of their 504 plan and select courses.

Step 3: Plan to attend

The Scout Experience
Wednesday, January 24, 6:30 - 8:30pm

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, LF.

Shuttle buses will be available at the City of Lake Forest remote lot at the corner of Scott and McKinley Rd. beginning at 6pm.

Step 4: Verification of Residency & Enrollment and Course Selection

In order to attend Lake Forest High School, you must complete the verification of residency to complete the enrollment process. To do this, you MUST bring your student’s CERTIFIED, ORIGINAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE and at least THREE documents verifying residency to your student’s course selection appointment.
