Alumni Field was dedicated on October 19, 1957. It was underwritten by Col. Robert R. McCormick, editor and publisher of the Chicago Tribune.
In 2005, the Academy completed a five-year-long project to improve the outdoor athletic facilities on campus.
- Track was resurfaced and widened to accommodate six full-sized lanes (seven on the straightaways).
- Triple/Long jump was moved from the sideline of the track/football field complex to the north end, opening up football field space.
- High Jump area was squared off and area size increased.
- The Lake Forest Academy soccer programs utilize Alumni Field in addition to the two LFA Soccer Fields.
- The field was home to the Caxy football program before the sport was discontinued.
