LACONIA — Lakes Region Community College has a new partnership with the Laconia Adult Education Program. LRCC and Laconia Adult Education have collaborated to assist individuals in completing their high school equivalency.  Funded by a grant, this free, 13-week guided program will help participants earn their HiSET, a high school equivalency exam.

“We are excited to be partnering with Chris Ennis and the Laconia Adult Education Program to serve the community by helping those who are furthering themselves in their career,” said Patrick Cate, associate vice president of academic and student affairs at LRCC. “This partnership allows individuals to not only complete high school, but to take the next step and continue their education even further.”

In additional to helping students prepare for the HiSET, this program will also help participants identify potential career paths in the Lakes Region and assist in pursuing career goals. Rolling admissions began February 18, and interested individuals can continue to enroll. Classes will meet Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 6-8:30 p.m. at Laconia High School. For more information, call Christopher Ennis, director of the Laconia Adult Education Program, at 603-524-5712.
