OLD LYME –  Updated Oct. 29, 8:13pm: Lyme-Old Lyme High School (LOLHS) has received a prestigious College Success Award from GreatSchools.org.

Launched in 2018, the College Success Award honors schools that excel in ensuring students prepare for college, enroll in college, and succeed once they get there.

This year, LOLHS is among 2,158 award-winning schools from 29 states, which have demonstrated a successful track record of graduating students, who later enroll in two- or four-year college. These students are ready for college-level coursework, and then persist onto their second year, according to available data from each state.

Lyme-Old Lyme High School is one of 52 schools in Connecticut to receive this year’s College Success Award.

Lyme-Old Lyme Schools Superintendent Ian Neviaser commented exclusively to LymeLine.com, “We are committed to ensuring our students are prepared for whatever path they choose after high school,” adding, “I’m proud of our teachers, administrators, and staff for their dedication to providing the best education for our students.”

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to threaten the physical and financial health of the nation, LOLHS is endeavoring to ensure students graduate with the skills and resources to succeed as postsecondary scholars and productive citizens. College- and career-ready graduates are critical to fueling the U.S. economy, as 70 percent of jobs will require a postsecondary degree by 2027.

“We applaud Lyme-Old Lyme High School for prioritizing high-quality public education, putting students on the path to bright futures,” said Jon Deane, CEO of GreatSchools.org.

Deane continued, “Over the past year, students, parents, teachers, and communities have relied on one another like never before. We congratulate and thank all of these individuals at Lyme-Old Lyme High School for their unwavering pursuit of college success for all students.”
