Academic excellence is a vital element of Lake Forest High School’s reputation. Academic expectations at LFHS are extraordinarily high, but each year students go above and beyond the requirements set forth to achieve the highest level of academic standing forged through work ethic, dedication, and attention to detail.
Recently, the members of the Class of 2018 whose GPAs qualify them for membership in the National Cum Laude Society were announced. According to the Lake Forest High School website, the Cum Laude is, “a national organization that honors scholastic achievement. Election to membership is granted to juniors and seniors by a faculty committee on the basis of outstanding academic achievement. Induction is held in conjunction with the National Honor Society and is usually held in April.”
Cum Laude is based on weighted grade point average (GPA), which is a numeric representation of your academic standing that takes into account the level of classes that you take and your performance in those classes. Cum Laude is a representation of the premiere students at LFHS in terms of academic performance.
Below are the names of the students that qualified for membership in this prestigious organization.
