One way that Lake Forest Academy inspires our community members to become global citizens is through our service learning program. The Academy encourages students to take part in service opportunities in order to connect with others that are part of both our internal and external communities. Additionally, the Academy asks our students to reflect and think about ways they can shape social structures, enact change, and benefit others.

Interact is the umbrella organization for the majority of service clubs on campus. Come to Interact Meetings every F Day during the 1 p.m. break in Reid 1. The following clubs will have representatives during the meeting to answer your questions: Harvest Hope, Literacy Corps, Nuestro Center, Northern IL Food Bank, VA Lovell Medical Center, and Robotics at Neal Academy.

What happens at an Interact Meeting?
  • Service trip leaders provide activity updates
  • Upcoming opportunities for service are discussed and voted upon
Sign-up sheets for individual service site visits are posted on the Activities Board next to the ramp between Corbin and Reid. Announcements are made at Morning Meeting during the week before the event.
