LAKE FOREST – Lake Forest Country Day School (LFCDS) will host an Open House on Thursday, October 19 at 9:00 a.m. This Open House offers an opportunity to tour the campus, speak with teachers and students, observe classes in session, and meet families from the LFCDS community.
LFCDS delivers a diverse and rich educational experience grounded in academics, arts, and athletics to two-year-old through eighth-grade students. The LFCDS experience ensures that talented teachers inspire and challenge individual students at the top of their abilities, according to their needs. At LFCDS, students from more than 30 communities thrive in a state-of-the-art, hands-on learning environment that encourages self-expression and confidence through inspired teaching, academic rigor, individualized attention, and responsible citizenship.
“Two important beliefs are at the heart of our teaching philosophy,” said Head of School Bob Whelan. “Social and emotional development is inextricably linked with academic achievement, and experiential learning creates a foundation for deeper understanding.”
Mr. Whelan notes, “Teaching and learning are not by rote here. The classrooms, technology offerings, laboratories, art spaces, and playing fields all serve as vital staging grounds for a rich program, designed to prepare LFCDS graduates to be compassionate, independent thinkers with a strong sense of personal integrity and intellectual curiosity.”
Highlighted by a 7:1 student/faculty ratio, an LFCDS education sets the stage for a bright future in secondary school and beyond, with 20 percent of LFCDS graduates attending colleges and universities ranked in the top 20 by U.S. News and World Report. In addition, LFCDS offers limited morning bus service from several area communities.
