Our Model

Leominster Center for Excellence is a small innovation high school in the Leominster Public Schools, and a Big Picture Learning School. We believe that students learn best when they engage in authentic, rigorous and important work, both in school and with adults in the community.   Two days per week students work with a mentor in the community in an internship of their choosing. Students use their interests and passions develop authentic projects that give them a sense of how their interests play out in the real world and help them prepare for college and career. We measure students’ progress and readiness for graduation by assessing the growth of skills in five learning domains, successful participation in key experiences, and demonstration of careful preparation for continued success after graduation from LCE.



Get Involved!

Host a student for an informational interview. Invite a student to your place of work to have a conversation about who you are and what you do.

Invite a student for a Shadow Day. Give a young person an opportunity to spend the day with you in order to learn more about your professional environment.

Become a mentor. Share your knowledge of your profession. In turn, students will develop projects that will have value for you and your workplace. In addition building stronger ties in the community, mentoring will give you the satisfaction of helping a young person develop important workplace skills.
