    The Academy opened in March of 2020, and the program developed out of a grass roots effort to provide students an alternative to the traditional high school setting.

    The Lawrence College & Career Academy (LCCA) serves students grades 10-12 and prepares students for self-sustainability through learning academic, career, social, and emotional skills leading to high school graduation, career path employment, and successful completion of a wide variety of post-secondary education opportunities.

    LCCA provides a ''full-day'' option for students who have completed one school year at Lawrence High School or Lawrence Free State High School. Students who choose to attend the Academy will experience:

    *Daily health, wellness, and prevention programming
    *Daily academic support programming
    *Individualized academic skill development designed to meet graduation requirements
    *Career skill development that leads to high-demand, self-sustaining careers
    *Integrated courses that identify the relevancy of academic content and provide links to career interests

    Students who desire to attend the College & Career Academy must complete an application and a 15 minute face-to-face interview. Students must have at least two (2) adult mentors (parents, guardians, mentors, teachers, counselors) who are willing to support the student's academic, social and career skill development.
