The Lowell Middlesex Academy Charter School (LMACS) is a public high school that targets at-risk adolescents who have officially dropped out of high school or who are seriously at risk of doing so. Upon graduation, each student will have a high school diploma, clearly demonstrated set of academic skills and a clear awareness of the rights and responsibilities of U.S. citizens.
To be eligible for admission, applicants must be between the ages of 16 & 21 and a Massachusetts resident. LMACS accepts students three times a year: August, November and March. Students wishing to enroll at LMACS need to complete an application and submit a complete school transcript. Students are admitted to LMACS on a first-come, first-served basis.
“The year (my daughter) spent at LMACS was the turning point in her young life. You believed in her and treated her like an adult. Thank you for allowing her a second chance at life.”
"We have so much gratitude for all that you have taught our son...you made him feel worthy of himself."

The Yellow Dress, December 6 at 9am: The Yellow Dress is a dramatic one-woman play based on the stories of young women who were victims of dating violence. Speaking in an intimate and honest monologue, Anna describes her relationship that started out as young love full of passion and promise that ultimately ends in tragedy. This carefully constructed play allows the audience to learn about the cycle of dating violence. The audience watches as Anna describes the different types of abuse that she experienced, the effects that abuse has on the victims of dating violence, and how difficult it is to leave an abusive relationship. (The Yellow Dress was written by Deborah Lake Fortson and originally produced by Sydney Patten)
