Lancaster County Academy partners with Columbia Borough School District | Local News | lancasteronline.com

Columbia Borough School District recently became the 10th Lancaster County School District to partner with alternative high school Lancaster County Academy.

The district purchased five seats midway through the 2022-23 academic year, meaning up to five of its students can complete their graduation requirements at the academy. Seats this year cost $5,245 but Columbia Borough received a prorated rate for joining mid-year.

Columbia Borough students will study at the academy's West campus at Donegal Springs Road in Mount Joy Borough, expanding enrollment at the campus that opened in 2021-22. 

The academy is an alternative high school offering a flexible schedule, small class size and one-on-one support to students that need a different learning environment than the traditional classroom set-up. Teen parents, students with mental health or substance abuse issues and students with a lack of motivation to finish high school are among those served, according to an academy brochure.
