Welcome to East Lake Academy!

East Lake Academy is an independent Roman Catholic school in Lake Forest educating children from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.  We are dedicated to forming the whole child by providing the highest level of academics, by building character and by developing a strong apostolic faith.

If you would like to learn more about our unique approach to education, please contact us today at (847) 247-0035.


Thank you for celebrating East Lake Academy's 13th Annual Gala at The Grove Country Club. Our annual black tie fundraiser has raised approximately $55,000 to date. Thank you to all who participated through sponsorship, donation, advertising, raffle purchases and auction bidding.

We are pleased to share a video montage representing the spirit of East Lake Academy. Special thanks to East Lake parent, Colleen Conarchy, for her time and dedication in capturing the essence of our students.
