In addition to the wide range of courses that we have available here at LHS, there are other academic options available to our students.

 

The College Credit Plus (CC+) program is an opportunity for high school students to take college courses while still enrolled in high school. Students have the option of completing courses on a college campus, online, or at LHS.

 

College classes at LHS include both classes that are taught by LHS teachers who are eligible to serve as adjunct faculty through NCSC.

 

Classes being taught at LHS include:  Calculus 1, Intro to Business, Marketing, English Composition 1, American Government and Politics, Biology I, Chemistry I, Chemistry II, General Physics, American Culture & History to 1877, American Culture & History from 1877, and College Drawing I.

 

There are a lot of details involved in participating in the CC+ program and students must complete and submit the paperwork before April 1st to indicate their intent to participate in the CC+ program in the following school year.  One new aspect about CC+ is the fact that students are now eligible to take classes during the summer in addition to during the school year.

 

In order to explain all of the details of the program and to provide you with the forms necessary, students and parents must attend our mandatory Academic Options meeting on Monday, February 6 at 7pm in the HS Auditorium.

 

If you have any interest in learning more about College Credit Plus, please talk to your counselor!

As school counselors, we believe our role is significant in creating a personal welcoming environment for each and every student. Our goal is to ensure our students have the support needed to maximize their potential as learners. We can accomplish this by addressing their development in the areas of academic performance, social-emotional wellness, and career exploration through pro-active programming, outreach, and support. The counseling department welcomes your questions or concerns.
 
Lexington High School Department of Guidance and Counseling is committed to meeting the unique intellectual, physical, social and emotional needs of each student. The guidance counselors are student advocates. A variety of services are provided to support this effort. All parents are reminded to frequently check the Student Services link on the Lexington High School website where information on testing, scholarships, financial aid and important upcoming events can be found.
 
If students need help in any way, they should contact their counselor. Students can arrange appointments through the Student Services Secretary.  After hours appointments can be arranged with the individual counselors. Counselor Alphabet Breakdown:

Mrs. Kristen McPeek, A - K and Mrs. Karen Freeman, L – Z.

Counselors  assist students in the college selection process. Beginning in the junior year, students are instructed as to the appropriate sequence of activities they need to follow in order to identify colleges that match their needs. Counselors present information through large group assemblies, classroom presentations, guidance activities, and individual conferences.  Students learn how to access materials that include computer search programs, college guide books, and view books.   These resources are available in the Student Services Office.  Students are also encouraged to attend the annual college fair in mid-September at the OSU-M branch as well as mid-April at Ashland University.  The counselors provide small group sessions with seniors to guide senior students through the college application process.
