    High School Seniors interested in taking a Spring 2019 LVC class, please stop by the guidance office or download the application attached along with the LVC overview information.  A-C High School has 15 spots for interested seniors to sign up to take a free LVC class. The students taking an LVC class are responsible for purchasing books and parking passes, but the tuition for the 15 spots is free.  The Spring applications will be accepted starting Nov. 12, 2018, and applications must be returned to the guidance office by Nov. 27, 2018.  To search for available Spring courses, go to LVC.edu/registrar and click on the searchable course listings by department.  Search by 1st-year (100 level) classes, by department and list up to three classes that are of interest and may fit your schedule.   In order to apply, students must have a 2.5 GPA.   

    LVC offers a reduced tuition rate of $337.50 per credit hour for high school students, so this is a great way to save time and money while preparing for success in college.  If you would like to take a class and aren't one of the first 15 seniors to apply, you may still be able to take a Spring LVC class. The application and information links are attached here.
