Lake Forest Academy announced its 2024-25 student leadership positions that includes the Prefects, Proctors, Head Ambassadors, All-School President, and Student Councils for the classes of 2024 and 2025. LFA and Ferry Hall’s histories included student leadership and opportunities for leadership growth by the student body.

Prefects are conscientious and dedicated students who serve the school community and advance the school's mission. The Prefects work closely with students, including proctors, club leaders, and class presidents, to act as a resource for important issues and to help ensure the proper ordering of school life. They assist with the opening and closing of school, New Family Day, Multicultural Day, and others. As part of the opening of school, Prefects will help coordinate and organize new student activities during orientation and during the fall semester through the Peer Mentor Program.

A President and three Representatives from each class are elected by their peers during the spring term, except for the freshman and sophomore classes, whose elections take place early in the new fall term. Prior to those elections, an All-School President is elected. The All-School President presides over the Student Council. Student Council also includes the newly-created position of Student Council Advisor, whose job will be to help build LFA's student governance constitution and help oversee Student Council functions. The Student Council provides a forum to discuss ways of improving the school community, to plan social events, and to organize fundraising activities.
