LLCA is a tuition-free, public charter school with caring and dedicated teachers and staff. With its dual enrollment partnership with Isothermal Community College, almost half of the school's Junior and Senior classes are taking college-level courses. They can graduate with an associate's degree at the same time as their high school degree. The school now has a nurse on-hand daily as well as two, full-time guidance counselors. A 32,000-square-foot Gymnatorium is under construction and solar panels are being added to the roof. It a small school with a big heart!
