It has been a milestone school year for Lake Lure Classical Academy, one that began with a ribbon cutting ceremony in August and will end with the charter school’s 26 seniors becoming LLCA’s first graduating class in June. Many students in the Class of 2016 started attending LLCA when its doors first opened in the fall of 2010 and have watched their school grow from a K-7 school in portable buildings to a K-12 school on a brand new campus.
In preparation for graduation, seniors have been working hard all year focusing on academic performance; community service; college entrance exams; college visits and the college application process. As of April 2016, seniors have received acceptance letters from the following colleges and universities:
Appalachian State University
Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College
Eastern Washington University
Florida State University
Isothermal Community College
North Carolina State University
North Greenville University
South Dakota State University
University of Hawaii- Hilo
University of Central Florida
University of North Carolina – Asheville
University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill
University of North Carolina – Wilmington
Warren Wilson College
Western Carolina University
Western State Colorado University
With help from their families and LLCA staff, the 12th Graders have enjoyed all the “senior rights of passage” from ordering class rings, caps and gowns to planning memorable evens like their Senior Prom.
Commencement will take place on June 11, 2016 at The Foundation at Isothermal Community College in Spindale, NC.
