LPS Focus Programs
a customized high school experience rooted in connection and opportunities
Over 25 Years of Students Choosing their Own Journey
Our first focus program was the Science Focus Program, formerly known as “Zoo School,” which we founded in 1997. Since then, we have expanded to nearly a dozen opportunities, allowing our scholars to choose their passions, communities and futures
