LCHS serves the varied educational needs of Catholic and non-Catholic youth in the greater Lansing area.
Students hail from as many as 20 different middle and elementary schools in all directions including Lansing, East Lansing, Bath, Haslett, Okemos, Williamston, Fowlerville, Howell, Grand Ledge, Holt, Mason, Eaton Rapids, Dimondale, DeWitt, St. Johns, Fowler, Westphalia, Perry, and Owosso.
Students who have learning differences and have an active Individualized Education Plan (IEP or 504 plan) are accommodated by Lansing Catholic teachers under the direction of our Student Resource Coordinators and Counselors.
Courses are not weighted in the determination of GPA or class rank. A Cum Laude system for academic honor recognition is in place at Lansing Catholic. Honors for graduating seniors will be determined by the 7th semester cumulative grade point average according to the following scale: Summa Cum Laude (3.9 to 4.0), Magna Cum Laude (3.75 to 3.89), Cum Laude (3.5 to 3.74). Cum Laude status will be printed on the high school transcript as well as the diploma that is issued to the student. Honor cords for each distinction will be presented to students at the Baccalaureate Awards ceremony in May.
All Students must successfully complete 24 credits in the following areas:
|Social Studies||3.0 Credits|
|Fine Arts||1.0 Credit|
|Physical Education||0.5 Credit|
|World Languages||2.0 Credit (2 years of the same language)|
Levels I-IV are available in Spanish, French and Latin. AP Spanish is also available.
