• From the Executive Director

    We are off to a HOT, HOT, HOT new school year! LMACS is ready to welcome 100 students for the 2018-2019 school year. We are accepting new students until September 28, 2018…so if you know any young people between the ages of 16 and 21 who are interested in working on their high school diplomas, please have them apply.

    As mentioned in the spring letter, we had some exciting academic achievements during the 2017-2018 school year that continued through the spring MCAS "season" where our students excelled in their MCAS tests. Congratulations to all.

    This year we will begin our field trips with the first of two visits to the Mathew Boule Memorial Park in Dracut, MA. Mat is an LMACS alum who died serving our country in 2003 in the Iraq War. The visits are very moving and emotional for all of us. At the Memorial, we get to meet Mat’s parents, Leo and Sue, and, once again, we will leave flowers in memory of all those who made the ultimate sacrifice. From the Boule Memorial, we’ll be off to Camp Massapoag for a more lighthearted afternoon where we come together as a community through boating, basketball, and burgers! (Students have come to expect a visit from the ice cream truck!!!! Very popular time of the day…)

    During the 2018-2019 academic year, we will focus on improving attendance. Our campaign is “STRIVE FOR 85”…85% attendance, that is. We predict that any student who attends 85% of the scheduled school days will be successful at LMACS and will graduate in the shortest of time possible.

    Once again this year, LMACS is very grateful to all the organizations that support our programs. We could not be able to provide this exceptional educational opportunity to our students without their help.

    So, we’re off and running at LMACS…and Go Sox!
