PORTA High School seniors will have an additional opportunity next school year. In the spring semester of the 2019-2020 school year, seniors who have fulfilled their core graduation requirements will have the opportunity to get a head start on their college careers by attending LLCC’s First Semester program at Pleasant Plains High School. As a part of this program, students are required to enroll in five LLCC courses and because it is a dual credit program, will also retain their status as high school students. As a result, they are still eligible to participate in PORTA High School activities and organizations. The cost of enrolling in the program is the student and/or parent’s responsibility and is the same amount a student who is attending LLCC would pay for those courses, estimated to be around $2,500.
Parents of interested students are invited to attend an informational meeting on Thursday, May 9th at 7:15 a.m. in the high school library. Please contact Linnay Taylor, guidance counselor or Amy McMahan, principal, at the high school with questions regarding the program.
