Summer Plans?

It’s 30 degrees in Lowell.  Sounds like a good time to start thinking about summer plans, right?!


Our students may have noticed that for a few days in January, the counseling department gained a member.  Tim LaBranche, a 2012 LC grad and a current senior at Endicott College, was completing an internship and learning about becoming a guidance counselor.  One of the things Tim helped out with was updating out enrichment program Google document.  That information is always accessible by clicking on the “Enrichment Program” tab of this blog, but can also be found here.

Enrichment programs are a great way to learn more about a subject you are passionate about.  When they take place on a college campus, they can give students a taste of what college life will be like.  If you have any questions about a program, please see your counselor!

Welcome Back!

Another school year is here!  It’s always sad to see summer go (does anyone else think this one went by extra quickly?), but the start of a new year is exciting.   We hope you’ve all had a wonderful and restful break!

Last year we had this little idea to start a blog – we hope you’ve found the information we post to be useful.  If you have any ideas for future posts, or regular features, please send them our way!  We want to write about the things you want to hear about.  We’ll continue posting scholarships and enrichment programs on this blog, and will keep going with our “50 States, 50 Colleges” feature.  We have a fun, new idea for “Major Mondays” which we’ll be rolling out shortly.

Please let us know how we can support you in the coming year.  We wish our students the very best this school year!
