Lake Forest Academy is offering high school and middle school classes this summer as part of its Summer Academy program. The high school classes will provide transcript credit while the middle school classes offer enrichment opportunities. The high school program will run from June 10-July 2 while the middle school program is scheduled for June 10-21.

LFA's Summer Academy provides a remarkable learning opportunity for high school students and middle school students. High school students will engage in a rigorous curriculum taught by LFA teachers. Current LFA students will have the option to earn transcript credit (non-LFA high school students will be issued a transcript that they can provide to their high school). Middle school students will explore important STEAM+ topics and have fun developing and sharpening their critical thinking skills while having the opportunity to learn on our campus.

The high school program will have full-credit and half-credit options this summer. It is scheduled to run just over three weeks from June 10-July 2 with full-credit courses in Algebra 2, Biology 1, Chemistry 1, English, and Geometry. The half-credit options for session one from June 10-19 include French, Photography Fundamentals, Spanish, and Visual Art while session two from June 20-July 1 offers a class in Digital Art Photography. Class each day will start at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 2:30 p.m. with a 30-minute complimentary lunch in the Academy's dining hall located in the JC Cowart Student Center. All classes will be held at Lake Forest Academy's campus, although the possibility of field trips does exist. The cost for the High School program is $3,000 for full-credit classes and $1,500 for the half-credit classes.

The middle school program will run from June 10-21 and all classes will also be held on Lake Forest Academy's campus. Half-day classes available for week one from June 10-14 include The Painting & The Poem, Shakespeare Bootcamp, Forensic Science: Crime Scene Investigation, Science Olympiad: Builds, Creating Chemical Potions, and Engineering with LEGO. Week two features Pen to Page: Creative Writing and Sentence Design, Reading: In The Sea There Are Crocodiles, Science Olympiad: Earth & Space, Science Olympiad: Environmental Science, and Engineering with LEGO. The program will have four sessions over the two weeks – a morning session from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and an afternoon session from 12:15 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. Students can participate in both sessions and have a complimentary lunch on campus. The cost of the middle school program is $350 for one session per week and $1,200 for four sessions (morning and afternoon with complimentary lunch) over the two weeks of Summer Academy for middle school students.
