Senior Year Planning

Final Year at LHA

This last year at LHA is the most crucial year.  This is the year students receive more freedom and are strongly encouraged to be self sufficient and independent.  Eligible seniors are encouraged to take classes off LHA’s campus at San Joaquin Delta College and are asked to be resourceful as that is a vital skill that they will carry with them into their college career.  This page will provide students with some resources to help them get through the year until that proud day when we see them walk across the stage no longer as high school students, but as graduates and new incoming college students.
