At LFCDS, our program for secondary-school placement focuses on each student's individual needs—both academic and social-emotional. Our goal is to find the best fit for each student to ensure he or she will thrive in high school, college, and beyond.

Students and families considering boarding school life are invited to Lake Forest Country Day School on Tuesday, May 7, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to spend an evening with us at our Independent Boarding School Fair.
The LFCDS Spring Independent Boarding School Fair draws diverse boarding schools from across the country, each with a distinctive educational approach. LFCDS has hosted boarding school fairs for the past fourteen years as a service to families from the North Shore and surrounding communities. This event is free and open to all middle-school students and their families.
