Vision of eLearning

Lake Zurich Community Unit School District 95 seeks to offer a meaningful learning experience for all students that advances learning at every level and in every course.

The success of eLearning is dependent upon all of us doing our part. Students, staff, and parents all have a role to play and each must be accountable in order to continue fostering an effective learning experience.
