For some students, the traditional classroom or school has not provided the ideal learning environment. As a result, they may be struggling or lack motivation to complete high school. The Lancaster County Academy provides a second chance to students to earn a regular high school diploma, and acquire the needed work skills desired by today's employers. The Academy's self-paced academic curriculum fits the needs of students who are released in mid-school year from court placements. Students age 16-21 must reside in a sponsoring school district and receive approval from the district. No matter what the reason that regular school was not working, the Lancaster County Academy gives opportunity to restart a stalled education.
