Los Alamos Early College And Career Academy Accepting Applications From Local High School Students

LAHS News:

The Los Alamos Early College and Career Academy (LAECCA) is accepting applications from Los Alamos High School students for its program. 

The LAECCA is a program that is designed to give high school students early access to post secondary career and technical education opportunities while attending high school. There are multiple career and academic pathways a high school student may choose from if accepted into the LAECCA. Some students will earn certifications, some will earn an associates degree and some will gain a head start on credits or certifications for their post-secondary goals.

The University of New Mexico-Los Alamos is a valued partner in the development and implementation of this initiative. LAECCA is looking for Los Alamos High School students that have the potential to do college coursework or technical certifications during their high school career. Students in the program will receive support classes, if needed, to prepare them for taking college coursework. The goal of the LAECCA is to create a seamless experience for students between high school and their post-secondary goals by providing a focus on a future career.

 An application can be found on the LAHS website at http://www.laschools.net/lahs. Students wishing to apply must submit a completed application by 3 p.m., Dec.1. Direct questions to LAHS Assistant Principal Mike Johnson at 505.663.2514 or email him at m.johnson@laschools.net
