Ready to apply to ILHS for the 2024-25 school year?


    • We will continue to process applications on a space-available basis. We will add applicants to a waitlist if no seats are available at the time of application submission and processing. Applications take approximately two weeks to process and reply with a decision.
    • When seat offers are emailed, applicant families will receive an email with a link to our seat acceptance form. Once the family accepts a seat at ILHS, instructions about completing and submitting a waiver to attend ILHS officially will be provided.
    • Applicants will have one week to complete the seat acceptance form to accept a seat at ILHS. If there is no response after three attempts to reach a family within this week, we will close the application. Be sure to accurately and carefully enter contact information into the application form.
