Evening @ LÊP

Evening @ LÊP is a credit recovery program for students transferring in from other schools or for day school students who would be more successful in a self-paced environment. Students applying mid-semester and too late to earn credit in the LEP Day School, will find Evening @ LÊP a great place to enroll to earn credits before transitioning to Day School. Students earn credit through an online program, as well as through credit by exam and independent study options.
