Virtual Incoming Freshman Family Program
The webpage for our Virtual Incoming Freshman Family program has officially launched. This site can be accessed by visiting this link at any time and will remain on the District website for you to refer back to as needed.
We also encourage all families to view this video presentation from members of the Lake Park administrative team as it provides an overview of key information related to placement processes, academic planning/course selection, and tips on how to stay connected to Lake Park as your student(s) prepare for their transition to high school in the fall. You can view this video at any time and it will also be available on the web page alongside a variety of other On-Demand content.
On this site, you will find a variety of links, videos, and promotional materials related to elective offerings at Lake Park High School that your student may want to consider when selecting classes for freshman year. LPHS has so much to offer, and we encourage everyone to explore this content in advance of course selection.
Once you have had time to explore our on-demand content, you are encouraged to login to speak directly with our elective department representatives via LIVE Q&A HOUR running from 6:30-7:30 p.m. via Zoom. Teachers will be online to answer any questions you may have regarding freshman electives for next year. Additional Zoom sessions will also be open at this same time should you have any questions related to Special Education/English Language Learners or if you have questions for the School Nurse or LPHS Administrative team.
All LIVE Zoom links can be found on the website and will open at 6:30 p.m. Please feel free to log in or log out of different meetings to talk with multiple elective teachers and/or ask questions of LPHS staff. All will remain accessible and online until the conclusion of this Q&A hour at 7:30 p.m. If you are unable to access a link, please reference this Zoom Support document or call (630) 295-5220 to be connected with tech support.
We sincerely appreciate everyone’s flexibility as we shifted to this virtual format for this event and please, rest assured, all 8th grade students and families will have additional opportunities to visit East Campus in-person this spring when the annual Activities/Athletics and Student Services nights are hosted in April and May.
Class of 2026
On Saturday, October 16 and Saturday, October 23, Lake Park High School will administer the PSAT 8 assessment to all eighth-grade students in preparation for their freshman year. It is important that students do as well as possible on each component of this exam as these test scores will impact student placement into classes next fall.
Each student planning to attend Lake Park next year must take these tests at Lake Park, which will provide individualized information about a student’s aptitude in reading, writing, language, and math. This test must be completed in order to generate a schedule for your student. Students have been assigned to a test date based on their middle school.
Students must report to the Lake Park West Campus (500 W. Bryn Mawr) by 7:45 a.m. and enter the building through the main entrance. Testing will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. Students will not be admitted to the testing area after 8:00 a.m. Testing sessions will end at approximately 11:15 a.m. Each student should bring two #2 pencils, an eraser, and a calculator.
October 16: Medinah Middle, Peacock Middle, Spring Wood Middle, and Trinity Lutheran
October 23: Queen of the Rosary, Roselle Middle, St. Isidore, St. Phillips, St. Walter, and Westfield Middle
