Entrepreneurial-Leadership Certificate Program 

In the new world of the global economy, entrepreneurship will be a way to set yourself apart from others competing in the job market. 

Entrepreneurship is generally synonymous with resourcefulness, ingenuity, and the ability to take calculated risks. The program, reflecting the mission of LCHS, will also incorporate the Church’s teachings on social justice and business ethics.

The program will be open to students beginning sophomore year. Requirements for the program are still in the development stages and will be announced later this spring.
