Lake Forest Academy

Founded in 1857, Lake Forest Academy (LFA) is an independent, coeducational, boarding/day, college preparatory school, grades nine through twelve. LFA strives to embody in its practices and to cultivate in its students excellence of character, scholarship, citizenship, and responsibility. LFA was originally founded as a school for boys in the Presbyterian town of Lake Forest, Illinois. The Young Ladies’ Seminary at Ferry Hall was founded in 1869. The schools proceeded with their separate missions of educating young men or young women until the early 1970s when the schools coordinated their efforts. In 1974, the schools merged to form the coeducational Lake Forest Academy-Ferry Hall School; the school was then renamed Lake Forest Academy.
