LHS is working with NCTC to offer dual credit opportunities for
Juniors and Seniors. Dual Credit courses allow students to earn
college credit while meeting high school graduation requirements.
In the long run, this can lead to financial savings, increased college
success and allow students to get a head start on college core
curriculum. LHS will offer dual credit courses for US History,
Senior English, Government and Economics in the 2016-2017 school
year and all of this coursework transfers to public colleges and
universities within Texas. There is a process involved with
registering for dual credit courses so be sure to listen to
announcements and contact your counselor for more information!
