Our High School Program & College Preparatory Resources:

The high school program consists of unique learning opportunities for high school students, including on-campus community college courses with adjunct professors. It also includes distinctive electives, such as HNG Ecosystem, Civil War History, African American Music, Hip-Hop Studies, Logic and Rhetoric, Horticulture, and various World Languages.

North Carolina's Standard Course of Study defines the appropriate content standards for each grade level and each high school course to provide a uniform set of learning standards for every public school in North Carolina. These standards define what students know and should be able to do.

Additionally, through the College and Career Promise through the NC Department of Education, LLCA is in partnership with Isothermal Community College (ICC) offers qualifying students in grades 9-12 an opportunity to enroll in college-level courses with the idea that students may graduate high school with an associate degree or a technical certificate.

Our high school students also have access to classes via North Carolina Virtual Public School, NCVPS. The North Carolina Virtual Public School is a supplemental service to public schools of North Carolina. Locally, students enroll through LLCA, grades are reported to LLCA, and LLCA awards credits. The courses use learning management and collaborative software to maximize student interaction in each class.

NCVPS teachers at LLCA use the latest technologies to engage students as well as prepare them to be career and college ready. The North Carolina Virtual Public School has served over 175,000 middle and high school students since its initial launch in the summer of 2007.
