Lancaster County Academy (LCA), established in 1993, provides students from nine participating school districts a second chance to earn a high school diploma and acquire life-ready skills. The Academy offers two campuses (Lancaster and Mount Joy) to best support our nine partners and the students we serve. Our unique setting provides several benefits to students who feel marginalized in traditional high schools.
- Flexible hours
- Self-paced instruction
- Work-based learning experiences
- Career exploration and labor market awareness
- Opportunity to earn a regular high school diploma, not a GED
- Links to education and training beyond high school, including college, military, and workforce
