Dear Students and Parents,

On behalf of the Lake Zurich High School Learning Community, I am pleased to present the Program of Studies for the 2019-2020 school year. I encourage you to read this document to familiarize yourself with course offerings, descriptions, and prerequisites, as well as the current grading system.

Lake Zurich High School offers a comprehensive and appropriately challenging
curriculum with a variety of courses to satisfy graduation requirements and electives that allow the student to explore subjects of personal interest. We have a wide variety of extra-curricular activities along with programs and support systems in place to facilitate the development of students who are well-rounded and committed to continuous learning.

When registering for classes, please note that, according to the Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois School Code, all students must be registered for 300 minutes of instructional time per day to be considered a full time student. With Lake Zurich High School’s schedule of 9 periods, each 44 minutes long, every student must then be enrolled in 7 classes per semester. A supervised study hall does count towards the 300 minute requirement.

It is our desire to see all students challenge themselves, get involved, and take advantage of all that Lake Zurich High School has to offer. We are committed to providing students with the best possible educational opportunities that will allow them to achieve their goals and accomplish our district mission: to empower every learner to achieve personal excellence.
