Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP)
The Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) at Suffolk County Community College represents a cooperative effort between the College, the Longwood Central School District, governmental agencies and business and industry to provide a unique, comprehensive and supportive environment for students who may be at risk of dropping out of school. Its purpose is to serve those students who may not be reaching their academic potential by providing academic services that will improve their ability to complete high school and successfully enter postsecondary education or the workforce. LPP is funded by a grant from the New York State Education Department.
The Liberty Partnerships Program serves those students in grades 7-12 who may not be reaching their academic potential by providing academic services that will improve their ability to complete high school and successfully enter postsecondary education or the workforce.
LPP students who are juniors and seniors are also eligible to enroll in a two-semester program that leads successful students to one college credit upon completion. This offering contains a one-semester non-credit course that focuses on reading, writing, study skills, critical thinking and computer skills. The second semester course exposes students to topics of interest to college students and enhances their basic research skills. Additional credit-bearing courses are offered to students who successfully complete this sequence.
