Lapeer Early College (LEC)
An innovative program for students of Lapeer Community Schools offers students the opportunity to earn an associate degree just one year removed from high school. Lapeer Early College (LEC), partnered with Mott Community College and Baker College curricula starting in a student's junior year. It's a three-year commitment to increased academic rigor with access to college courses inside a traditional high school schedule.

During the 13th year, most of a student's time is spent at our partners colleges. After completion of the program, students will receive their LHS diploma and can earn an associate degree or 60 college credits from their partner school.

Why Early College?
#1. College Readiness
Prepare students as college ready. To not only get to college, but to get through college.
-Taking college courses taught by college instructors, using a college syllabus and communication system.

#2. Financial Benefits
-Earn 15 or up to 60 credits or Associate's degree through LCS partnerships.
-Reduce loans needed to both start and finish college.
-Complete the certificate or Associate's degree and go to work, or transfer the credits to a four year program to potentially be "half done".
