Alcohol Policy

Lake Forest Academy is a residential, independent secondary school with students on campus throughout Alumni Weekend. The Academy takes a very strong position against drug and alcohol use by students, and the use, possession, or even proximity to these substances results in dismissal from the school. We therefore request in the strongest possible way that adult guests not jeopardize our students by leaving alcoholic beverages unattended, by serving and/or drinking alcoholic beverages in areas and at times other than those designated by the Alumni Office, or by bringing alcoholic beverages onto campus. Non-compliance with this policy will result in confiscation of beverages and possible dismissal from the campus. Your cooperation with this policy is appreciated.

Merchandise and Campus Store

LFA and FH spirit wear and merchandise will be available for sale at the campus store, which will be open from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 21.

The campus store is located on the lower level of the Student Union.

Class Photos & Gifts

Class photos will be taken of each class in Reid Hall during the Alumni Weekend & Reunion dinner. Don't miss this part of the evening!

Please also celebrate your class by making a gift to the Academy Fund or a special project. To learn more, contact Director of Alumni Reunions and Reunion Giving Hannah Keller.
