Lakewood High School sending nearly 100 graduates to Tri-C
May 30, 2017
With an enrollment of more than 1,700 students, Lakewood High School is one of the largest high schools in Northeast Ohio. And when its senior class graduates this coming Sunday, nearly 100 of them will matriculate at Cuyahoga Community College.
According to figures posted on Lakewood City Schools’ website, 96 forthcoming Lakewood graduates have committed to attending Tri-C this fall. Cleveland State University (56 committed) is the only other school welcoming more than 20 Lakewood graduates.
Tri-C has become an increasingly popular option – in many cases, the first option -- for graduating high school students throughout the region. With one of the lowest college tuition rates in the state, locations throughout Cuyahoga County and numerous accredited programs, Tri-C is an ideal college environment for graduating high school students who want to:
- Explore different areas of study before committing to a major.
- Complete general-education requirements in advance of transferring to a four-year school.
- Enter the workforce sooner than would be possible on a traditional four-year college timeline.
- Reduce expenses by living at home while attending school.
