Winter semester classes for Laconia Academy set to begin January 12-15

LACONIA — Winter semester classes for Laconia Academy, the adult evening high school diploma program in the Lakes Region, are scheduled to begin Jan. 12-15.

The following courses will be offered: Science: Energy & Motion, Math For Life, 20th century U.S. history, math concepts/algebraic thinking, pre-algebra, economics, chemistry and lab, modern reading and writing, fact or fiction, Algebra I and human biology and lab.

The Laconia Academy "program provides adults with a second chance to earn a high school diploma," said Peggy Selig, director of Laconia Adult Education.

Anyone interested in enrolling for the winter semester or learning more about the program is urged to call 524-5712 or stop into the Laconia Adult Education Office located in Room #108 at Laconia High School.

Laconia Academy also allows students who are enrolled in day high school programs, to take courses at night, with their principal's permission, if they have failed classes during the day.

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. Credits are earned by passing courses at Laconia Academy. Laconia Academy is also approved for those eligible for V.A. benefits.

Students wishing to enroll in Laconia Academy are required to provide a copy of their high school transcript from the last school attended, in order to transfer those previously earned high school credits to one's current record at Laconia Academy.

Bank of New Hampshire has established limited scholarship help for those students demonstrating financial need living in Laconia, Gilford, Meredith, Center Harbor, Plymouth, Bristol and Moultonborough. This scholarship help will enable students to return to school at night and complete their high school education.

The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation through the Adult Success Program Grant (ASP) has also provided limited scholarship for these individuals who qualify in addition to limited scholarship assistance through the Pardoe Grant.

Those interested in attending Laconia Academy are encouraged to call 524-5712 to make an appointment or for more information.
