LACONIA — The Laconia Academy adult evening high school diploma program Fall Semester will begin the week of Monday, August 26 through Thursday, August 29.
During the the Fall Semester the following courses will be offered: Chemistry & Lab, F = Fractions, The Underdogs, Rhyme or Reason, Film Studies, Algebra I, Forces of Nature, Psychology: What's Normal, Math Concepts/PreAlgebra, Kings & Queens, Algebra II/Accuplacer/Assistments.org and Human Biology/Lab.
The goal of Laconia Academy is to enable adults to receive an high school diploma. Students attending Laconia Academy can earn high school diploma credits in several different ways. Credit is given for previous high school credits earned and life experiences such as military service, work experience, apprenticeship training, correspondence courses, certificate programs and homemaking. The Laconia Academy is also approved for those eligible for V.A. benefits.
Laconia Academy also enables In-School Youth, enrolled in day high school programs, to take courses at night if they have failed classes during the day. With the principal’s permission, any In-School Youth may enroll at Laconia Academy. This cooperation with local area high schools helps prevent In-School Youths from dropping out of high school or having to repeat their senior year.
Upon enrollment it is necessary that students submit a copy of their high school transcript from the last school attended. This transcript is necessary in order to transfer those previously earned high school credits to one's current record at Laconia Academy.
Bank of New Hampshire has provided some scholarship help for those students demonstrating financial need. This scholarship help will enable students to return to school at night and complete their high school education or earn a GED Certificate. Bank of New Hampshire, in conjunction with their Community Reinvestment (CRA) Plan is offering limited scholarship help
to residents living in the Bank's catchment areas of Laconia, Gilford, Meredith, Center Harbor and Moultonborough with the Laconia Academy Registration or Book Fees or GED Preparation Classes and Exam Fees.
