LaconiaAdult Education Program

Lakes Region Community College has announced a new partnership with the Laconia Adult Education Program in Laconia. LRCC and Laconia Adult Education have collaborated in an effort to assist individuals looking to complete their high school equivalency. Funded by a grant, this free, 13-week guided program will help participants earn their HiSET, a popular 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 Lakes Region Community College. “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 around the Lakes Region and assist them in pursuing their career goals. Rolling admission began Feb. 18, and interested individuals can continue to enroll. Classes will meet Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Laconia High School.

For more information, please call Christopher Ennis, director of the Laconia adult education program, at 524-5712.
