Co-Op

Students who are working can earn credit for Co-Op or work study. All rules apply.

Community Engagement

Students who either do not qualify for LCC or Co-Op, or who join the program mid year, will be enrolled in a two credit per semester course called community engagement. Students will plan and implement community improvement projects with the guidance of the lead teacher. There will be a dedicated classroom, but students will be frequently off-site during this time.

Class

Students will earn credits in a competency and project based system. Teachers will plan and implement a series of multi-disciplinary projects. Each teacher will be responsible for planning and assessing the implementation of these projects.
