LOL has been a big success for our teens!
LOL teens believe in themselves and are successful in their endeavors after high school. They have a level of independence and ownership of their education that serves them well in college and in their post-high school careers. 92% percent of LOL high school seniors go on to college.
We attribute our students’ success to the respectful, nurturing environment, small class sizes, caring facilitators and the students themselves. Our program gives students the opportunity to enroll in some of the more difficult high school subjects—which are sometimes hard to teach at home—as well as classes such as art and drama. The quality of our classes, in combination with the positive social environment, fills a gap that enables students to continue their non-traditional education through high school.
Our teens are integral members of a caring community. The younger students look up to the teens as mentors and the teens in turn appreciate and honor the younger students. The social continuity and warm environment at LOL are highly conducive to real learning.
“The teachers teach to you, rather than to the class. I like the freedom we get; LOL is more like a college.”
