Frequently Asked Questions 

Will my student have an Associates Degree when they graduate from high school?

Although this is possible and many students choose this path, it is not the primary focus of the school. The regular program allows students to take a minimum of 40 college units in their 4 years, but students certainly have the option of going beyond that.

Do I have to pay for the college classes and books?

No! All of your student’s classes are free up to 11.5 units per semester. Plus, we provide all of your students college books.

Will my student have a regular 8 AM - 3 PM school day?

Technically, yes. However, your student will have college class time embedded into their school day. We work to provide college classes that fit into the "regular" school day hours. Your student may choose to take extra college classes or extra high school electives that go beyond that school day if they have transportation. Additionally, LMCHS is on a block schedule to accommodate college classes.

Will I need to provide transportation for my student?

Lemoore Middle College High School is part of the Lemoore Area Schools busing route. Our students use the same buses as Lemoore High. If your child lives outside of LUHSD boundaries, you will have to provide transportation or use public transportation options. Many of our out of city parents carpool.
