Lake Forest Academy is committed to making our education available to all qualified families. We offer $6 million in financial aid grants annually to families who could not otherwise afford the cost of a Lake Forest Academy education.
Financial aid grants are need-based and vary in range depending upon each family’s financial resources. Lake Forest Academy’s financial aid funds are allocated according to financial need. We also offer a select number of Headmaster’s Scholarships to recognize a student’s academic accomplishments. These range from $7,000-$10,000 and they do not require an additional application; all students are automatically considered for these awards upon applying. Lake Forest Academy does not offer athletic scholarships or any other non-need based extracurricular scholarships.
We use School and Student Services (SSS) to process our financial aid applications. Based on the financial information you provide, SSS provides an estimated amount of what your family should be able to contribute to educational expenses. This helps our school make fair and objective financial aid decisions. We will communicate decisions about financial aid at the same time admission decisions are rendered.
