Academic Support

While Lake Forest Academy prides itself on the rigor of its curriculum and the access students have to meet individually with faculty, we recognize that students arrive with different academic skill sets and may need additional support to thrive. The Academic Support Program at LFA serves to fill this need by providing individual and group support in time management, organization, study skills development, note-taking and reading skill development, and homework completion.

The Learning Resource Specialist provides the following services on campus:

  • Individualized coaching in organization, time management, and study skills
  • Academic counseling to discuss academic concerns and identify strategies for improvement
  • Academic support during the school day (math & writing assistance, homework completion)
  • Coordination of Small Group Studies and Evening Structured Study Hall
  • Development of Student Accommodation Plans for students with documented psycho-educational, medical, or psychological diagnoses (similar to IEPs or 504 plans)
  • Development of academic support plans for students experiencing academic issues related to absences, illnesses, or psychological crises (in conjunction with the Dean of Students and School Counselors)
  • Coordination of accommodations for all national standardized tests (ACT, PSAT, SAT, and AP Tests)
