    Juniors!  See the link below to a short article with tips about asking for letters of recommendation for college and scholarship applications.  Whether you are thinking you'll attend a 4-year university, a 2-year college for a transfer degree, or a technical school (3 months to 2-year programs), you'll need letters of rec. 

     
    I'm thinking of you all, and proud to be able to be a part of this important journey.
     
     
     
     
    TAKING THE SAT:    The SAT and ACT are both college entrance exams.  These exams are not required for the class of 2021, but at this time, we should assume they may be required for the class of 2022 and beyond.  Sophomores and Juniors have just taken the PSAT (Practice) exam at LCHS.  The SAT for the class of 2022 will be offered on our campus in April, 2021.  Both the SAT and ACT are offered throughout the year at other locations.  During this COVID year, there may be fewer test dates available.  If you would like to register for either SAT or ACT to be taken at a location other than LCHS, register through the testing website:  collegeboard.org (for SAT) or ACT.org for the ACT exam.  Fees for both exams are approximately $60.00.  Waivers are available for those families qualifiying for free and reduced lunch.
