Los Alamos Early College and Career Academy

Los Alamos Public Schools

The Los Alamos Early College and Career Academy (LAECCA) supports students in early access to post‐secondary training, allowing them to graduate from high school with college credentials and credits in addition to their high school diploma. By linking early high school student experiences with partners in higher education and workforce leaders, LAECCA provides a seamless transition from high school to college and a solid foundation of workplace readiness. LAECCA emphasizes three pathways of post‐secondary study: electro‐mechanical technology, business marketing, and emergency medical services. LAECCA students can earn college certifications and substantial credits towards an associate’s degree. The University of New Mexico‐Los Alamos (UNM-LA) is a valued partner in the development and implementation of our program. LAECCA students have access to supports through a dedicated LAECCA guidance counselor and faculty advisors throughout the school day; students can take the “Accelerated College and Career Readiness” (ACCR) course offered by the high school faculty but taught on the college campus. This seminar course is designed to prepare students for university level coursework and familiarize them with the college setting and expectations of higher education.
