Dual-credit classes bring college to LHS

Motivated high school students have options when it comes to earning college credit. One option, College in the High School, is a cooperative program between Lakewood and Everett Community College. Courses are taught by Lakewood teachers who work closely with EvCC faculty mentors to ensure the work the students perform in the high school course is equivalent to a similar course taught on campus.
