The school takes pride in its personalized instruction; few classes exceed 20 students, and professors do all of the teaching. This results in a more engaging classroom experience based on discussion rather than lectures.
The college has also begun offering graduate degrees. Programs offered currently include master’s degrees in Liberal Studies and in Teaching.
Lake Forest College offers generous financial aid to eligible students. Well-qualified in-state students receive a yearly $12,000 scholarship, while excellent out-of-state students are eligible for the Presidential Scholarship.
