High school goes to college at Lorenzo Walker Technical High School, which shares a campus and a vision for success with its partner institution, Lorenzo Walker Technical College. Students travel from all over the county to attend Lorenzo Walker, where they take academically rigorous classes while also receiving professional training in 25 career programs. After graduation, they are ready for whatever comes next. As the school counseling director explains, “When [students] walk across the stage, they are handed two diplomas: one from the college, one from the high school.” In this video, educators explain how the school has flourished despite some early challenges, and students share what they love about their high school and college experience.
