The Lowell Middlesex Academy Charter School (LMACS) is a public high school that targets at-risk adolescents who have officially dropped out of high school or who are seriously at risk of doing so. Upon graduation, each student will have a high school diploma, clearly demonstrated set of academic skills and a clear awareness of the rights and responsibilities of U.S. citizens.
To be eligible for admission, applicants must be between the ages of 16 & 21 and a Massachusetts resident. LMACS accepts students three times a year: August, November and March. Students wishing to enroll at LMACS need to complete an application and submit a complete school transcript. Students are admitted to LMACS on a first-come, first-served basis.
“The year (my daughter) spent at LMACS was the turning point in her young life. You believed in her and treated her like an adult. Thank you for allowing her a second chance at life.”
"We have so much gratitude for all that you have taught our son...you made him feel worthy of himself."

Notice of Destruction of Special Education Records for the Lowell Middlesex Academy Charter School
Attention Parents/Guardians, Former Students, Eligible (Adult) Students:
Special Education records which have been collected by the Lowell Middlesex Academy Charter School (LMACS) to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of Special Education must be maintained under state and federal laws for a period of seven years after Special Education services have ended for the student. Special Education services end when the student no longer is eligible for services, graduates, completes his or her educational program at age 22, or moves from the district.
"Graduation a Proud Day"
"LMACS is truly a school like no other. It's a place for second chances," said student Melissa Santos.
"Before I attended LMACS I was just trying to get by and had little motivation to come to school," she added. "Since being at LMACS I've grown in ways that I could never imagined. It may sound cliche, but it's the honest truth."
Her time at the school, she said, and the support of her classmates and teachers, had completely changed her outlook on the future.
