The Great Lakes Fencing Academy is a fencing club serving elementary, middle and high school age fencers. We offer beginning, intermediate and advanced fencing programs in epee, foil and saber.
Our programs are designed for recreational fencers as well as fencers who want to compete at the highest levels.
Our recreational fencers learn a sport that they can enjoy for a lifetime, our competitive fencers get prepared to compete in local, regional and national tournaments, and have qualified to compete in the Summer Nationals and Junior Olympics.
The Great Lakes Fencing Academy is also the official home of the Championship Libertyville and Vernon Hills High School fencing team, during the off season.
The Great Lakes Fencing Academy is run by the LHS-VHHS Fencing Foundation, a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization created to promote the Olympic sport of fencing in Illinois. All proceeds from the club are used to support the fencing program at Libertyville and Vernon Hills High Schools.
