Notes for Prospective Students
- East Lake Academy is a private, independent Roman Catholic
school in Lake Forest, Illinois that has canonical approval,
support and encouragement of the Archdiocese of Chicago.
educational program consists of three essential elements: teaching,
educating and forming.
To teach means to provide the student with the intellectual
capabilities, content and skills needed to respond to the demands
of today's society.
To educate means to train the student in the habit of
intellectual rigor, structured reasoning, and in the appreciation
of beauty; it means to cultivate sensitivity, memory, imagination;
and finally, to develop the art of communication and the ability to
express oneself clearly and elegantly.
To form is to lead the student to become a person for others,
with an upright ethical code, sensitivity toward the needs of
others - especially the most disadvantaged - and openness to human
and spiritual values.
In this way students are prepared not just
for professional success, but also for their self-realization as
persons and authentic Christians in the various facets of their
personal and professional lives.
