Lake Forest Charter is a college readiness focused school which believes that’s it’s never too early to prepare for college. Our vision is that 100% of our students attend a four-year college and at least 85% go on to attain advanced degrees.
Our successful college readiness curriculum includes participation in the Duke University Talent Identification Program where academically talented 7th graders get their first exposure to the ACT or SAT. In fact, many of our LFC students have received the TIP Louisiana State Recognition (ACT scores 20 to 36) for high scores in Math, Science, English and or Reading.
LFC students also participate in Science and Social Studies Individual Research Projects which give students the opportunity to investigate questions about the world around them. Through experimental research or exploration, students take ownership of the details and course of the research, with the guidance of teachers. LFC students have participated and placed in the Tulane University’s Greater New Orleans Science and Engineering Fair as well as the LSU State Science and Engineering Fair.
