Lakeshore Collegiate Institute (LCI) provides opportunities for you to enrich personal and academic achievement by providing a demanding curriculum that incorporates academics with the arts, technology, co-op and athletics. LCI is a dynamic school with a wide offering of programs for every student.
Unique to LCI, in addition to our broad academic curriculum, students can specialise their studies in a number of different ways:
- Advanced Placement
The advance placement program allows students to enrich their education by integrating select University-level curriculum and assessment into their courses. In addition to preparing them for pace and complexity of post-secondary education, it also grants them some* advanced standing at over 90% of the Universities in North American (*subject to their individual policies).
This program integrates traditional visual arts and technology. Courses such as Media Literacy, Communication Tech, and Computer Science are used to broaden the art student's skill set to address modern applications of art media.
