Academic Profile

Stats That Matter

LM’s academic excellence is evidenced by significantly higher Advanced Placement test success of LM students versus PA and national averages, according to College Board data. The 5-year trend clearly reflects the growing strength of LM’s academic program that drives increasing AP success while PA and national averages remained unchanged over the years. LM is exceptionally strong in AP Calculus AB for which our students achieved a mean score of 4.57 in 2014 compared to PA and national averages of 3.24 and 2.94, respectively. For other AP subjects such as Biology, Environmental Science, Statistics, US History and World History, LM students out-performed PA and National averages by significant margins.

English proficiency

for post-secondary education

Enroll in Lancaster's

immersive ESL program

English as Second Language (ESL) classes serve students who are learning English as a non-native language. The goal of ESL is to bring students to a level of English proficiency whereby they can participate fully in other academic courses and transition successfully to post-secondary education. Most colleges require a TOEFL iBT score of at least 80 for admission, students who desire to exit the high school ESL program are expected to score near that level.
