Liberal Arts College Preparatory Program

Program Description:
The Liberal Arts College Preparatory Program (LACPP) is a learning community designed to provide access and support for students in the 11th and 12th grade as they progress through college readiness initiatives.  Students in this program will be prepared both academically and personally to successfully access and complete college. The focus of this program is to provide college preparatory classes, rigorous curriculum and engaging experiences to ensure that all students are "college ready".

The program is based on the theoretical framework of the work of David  Conley out of the  Educational Policy Improvement Center (EPIC) and the seminal text, "College Knowledge: What is Really Takes for Students To Succeed  and What We Can Do to Get Them Ready." 

All students in the LACP Program are expected to take coursework required for college admissions and preparation.  Students in the class of 2015 will be directed to take at least 4 dual credit  classes, four years of Math and Science, join and actively participate in at least one college readiness resource support program and take the ACT and or SAT test.  Students will be supported for success throughout their high school experience for a smooth transition to college.
