Testimonial

“At Lancaster Catholic, I was given the opportunity to apply skills I learned beyond the classroom to develop, study, and research a problem I saw in the world. Programs like STEM and St. Augustine were challenging, but taught me the rewards of self motivation and hard work, which has been instrumental in my college career so far. I graduated high school knowing I can write a 20 page research paper or run a clinical study on cigarette smokers thanks to the support provided by the teachers and community at LCHS.”
