We’re Here to Help


You might be early in your college search, and just beginning to think about where you might want to spend four years of your life. You might be very close to making your final decision about which institution you will attend. No matter where you are in your decision-making process, we want to provide you with information you need to make a good decision about the colleges and universities of LECNA. Are we right for every student? No, we’re not. But for thousands of young men and women every year, our campuses are ideal.


You might find yourself asking, “Am I helping too little?” or, “Am I helping too much?” The answers to these questions often depend on the individual student, however, as a parent, becoming knowledgeable about the tools and opportunities available is always helpful. As an informed source, you will be able to direct your student to answers or valuable resources. There are websites and research available to assist you.

In the end, perhaps the best way you can serve your student is to be a stable support, to be patient, to listen, and to remember your own questions, fears and dreams at that age.

Perhaps the most important part of thinking about college is thinking about yourself. What do you most enjoy about high school? When you think about a career, what kinds of work interests you? We’re not asking what job title sounds best – but what elements of work sound most enjoyable. Do you like interacting with lots of people? Solving technical problems? Working in a laboratory? Teaching other people? Whatever you choose to do, it is important to examine what you need and search for the best match for you.
