Laconia Academy Offers Diploma Courses
 For The Fall Semester 2017


Laconia Academy is the adult evening high school diploma program in the Lakes Region.  The diploma program provides adults with a “second chance” to earn a high school diploma.


Laconia Academy serves 3 types of students.


1. Students who require credit recovery.  These students need a couple classes to get them back on track for graduating with their peers from their own high school. (Approval by their High School Principal or Guidance Department is required)


2. Students who require a high school diploma or students who transfer into our diploma program and plan to graduate from our 20 credit diploma program and take a class or classes with Laconia Academy to accomplish this.  (Note: This is for any age after high school or students of high school age must be turning 18 over the course of the year and require permission from their high school Principal or Guidance Department.) 


3. Students who have graduated from high school but lack pre-requisites for nursing or similar field in the areas of Biology w/Lab, Chemistry w/Lab, Algebra I or II. 


The Fall Semester 2017 classes start the week of September 5th 2017. The following courses will be offered: Physics, Human Biology & Lab, Chemistry & Lab, Current Events & Global Issues, Foundations Math I, Intro to Creative Writing, Algebra I & II, and Reading the Memoir to Write a Memoir. 


One vital piece of paper needed at the time of enrollment is a copy of one’s high school transcript from the last high school attended. It is necessary in order to transfer those previously earned high school credits to one’s current record at Laconia Academy.


Laconia Academy has limited scholarship help for those students demonstrating financial need.  


Statistics show that one out of four adults in New Hampshire does not have a high school diploma. This often causes individuals to be ineligible for a job or promotion.  Do this for yourself and invest in your future. Go back to school and earn a high school diploma.


Call 524-5712 to learn more or start the enrollment process or stop into the Laconia Adult Education office located at Laconia High School.
