Courses begin on Wednesday, June 6, 2023, and run Mondays - Thursdays. There is no summer school in the building on Fridays. School is closed on Monday, June 19th as it is a district holiday.

APT Student Grants Program

This program is in place to support students who wish to pursue Summer School credit or enrichment courses at LFHS. If your child is considering a course in our Summer School program, please encourage them to submit a grant application. Here is the link: APT Grant Application 

*Additional consideration will be given to students where financial resources would otherwise limit a student's participation in the summer program. 


Please note:  Students submitting applications through the grant program should not register through the LFHS Web Store. Your grant submission will secure a space in the course while grant evaluation is in progress.  Once tuition grants are approved, any remaining balance should be paid by check made out to Lake Forest High School.
