Welcome to East Lake Academy, a Roman Catholic School of academic excellence located in west Lake Forest and proudly serving students from Libertyville, Lake Bluff and other surrounding communities all over Lake County and beyond.  We are delighted you are exploring our educational, spiritual and apostolic programs. From Preschool (pre k) to eighth grade, our students are prepared to become confident, Catholic leaders who will make valuable contributions to their school, community, and society. The Admissions team invites you to experience our unique difference by joining us for a personal tour or open house. The best way to learn more about our mission is to meet our faculty and students, and see them in action. We look forward to meeting you and your family!

We are pleased to announce a new parish tuition rate for St. Patrick and St. Raphael the Archangel parishioners that will significantly lower tuition for ELA students in Preschool through eighth grade. East Lake Academy, in collaboration with St. Patrick’s parish in Lake Forest and St. Raphael the Archangel in Old Mill Creek will be offering parishioners a $1,200 tuition credit, per student, for the upcoming school year.  Current parishioners and those families transferring to either parish prior to the upcoming school year, are eligible for this savings.  We are pleased to continue building this relationship with St Patrick church and St Raphael the Archangel.
