Career/College Promise

Gaston College and Cleveland Community College, in collaboration with Lincoln Charter School, offer qualifying students the opportunity to take college courses tuition free while enrolled in high school. College courses are taught to high school students who earn high school credit and college credit simultaneously. Courses are primarily taken during the school day.

Advanced Placement (AP)

Participating in the AP program gives opportunities to take college-level courses while in high school. LCS offers several AP classes that allow students to discover the joys of learning by studying subjects in greater depth and detail. AP courses demand skills that can lead to success in college. Additionally, taking rigorous AP courses demonstrates a students’ maturity, willingness to push themselves intellectually, and commitment to academic excellence; which can help students to stand out during the college admissions process.
