For some students, the traditional classroom or school has not provided the ideal learning environment. As a result, they may have dropped out of school for a variety of reasons and now realize that their action was not well planned or thought out. The Lancaster County Academy provides a second chance to those who have left school to earn a regular high school diploma, and acquire the needed work skills desired by today's employers. The Academy is a partnership between business and education. Students age 16-20 must reside in a sponsoring school district and receive approval from the district.
