Alcohol Policy

Lake Forest Academy is a residential, independent secondary school with students on campus throughout Reunion 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 29.

Class Photos

Class photos will be taken of each class ending in a 3 or an 8 in Reid Hall during the Reunion dinner. Don't miss this part of the evening!

Class Gifts

For those who have not made an Academy Fund gift this year, you'll have a chance to contribute when you sign our online reunion guest book. Your gift and participation will be counted in your class total for the year; you will receive a receipt for tax purposes. If you cannot return to campus for Reunion, we hope you'll consider a gift to help with your Class’ Reunion giving. Every gift, no matter the size, is important.
