High School Learning Center Events

Let's Talk About College poster

The High School Learning Center held its first ever "Let's Talk About College" event in coordination with Northern Essex Community College on Wednesday, March 10 during the school day. 

Students and families had the opportunity to talk about the benefits of a college degree, the application process, and financial aid.

Current and former NECC students spoke on a panel and answered questions about the college experience. We were very proud to have a former HLC graduate on the panel.

A second event was held in the evening exclusively in Spanish. 

The HLC will also partner with NECC on March 11 for an Application Day event. Students will be able to apply to NECC with assistance on Zoom.

Thank you to all HLC and NECC staff members who made these events possible!

Students graduated from HLC on June 5, 2021.

On Saturday, June 5, the HLC Class of 2021 held its graduation ceremony at the Lawrence High School Campus.

We are very proud of this particular class of graduating students. Students of this class rose to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This class of graduating students excelled at fully online, hybrid, and in-person learning when it became available. 

Thank you to our friends at LPS Media for streaming the graduation ceremony. Click here to watch the full graduation video.

We want to thank Northern Essex Community College, Job Corps, Career Connections, MassHire, and Middlesex Community College for participating in our fair.

Each organization was able to emphasize the trades offered at each program. Students had the opportunity to ask questions and apply to programs they were interested in.
