Lorain residents will soon have a second option to take college courses in their community – LCCC’s Community Learning Center at Lorain High School.
“Lorain County Community College, Lorain City Schools and the City of Lorain have a long history of partnering together to serve students and the greater community,” said LCCC President Marcia Ballinger, Ph.D.
“The opening of the LCCC Community Learning Center at Lorain High School will expand accessibility to college-level education for all residents in the city of Lorain,” Ballinger added.
The LCCC Community Learning Center at Lorain High School will complement Titan College and the City Center location and will provide local residents with the courses and training they need to succeed in the 21st century by providing easy access to high quality, affordable certificates and associate degrees.
The new high school campus, located at 2600 Ashland Avenue in Lorain, will open for fall semester on August 22. It will offer general education courses, along with an emphasis on innovation, health care, business and information technology classes. Programs offerings will expand and diversify at the high school location in the future.
An Express Registration event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednesday, August 10 at the LCCC Community Learning Center at Lorain High School.
At the Express Registration you will be able to:
- Meet the faculty of the LCCC Community Learning Center at Lorain High School
- Talk with advisers about your academic and career plans
- Schedule fall classes that begin August 22
- Tour the learning center
The Community Learning Center also will provide increased access to entrepreneurial services through the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and an extension of the Great Lakes Innovation and Development Enterprise (GLIDE), a business and technology incubator located on the LCCC campus in Elyria. GLIDE is the only Edison Technology Incubator on a college campus.
All registration and enrollment services for fall semester will take place at the City Center location until doors of the Community Learning center open in early August.
“The new learning center located at the high school is intended for everyone in the community – not just high school students, although there may be some high school students in the college courses there,” noted Dina Ferrer, coordinator of both LCCC’s Lorain Learning Center and the new Community Learning Center.
High school only courses are offered through LCCC and Lorain High School’s Titan College.
Construction is schedule to be completed in early August before LCCC classes begin on August 22.
