Students taking College Credit Plus courses will be provided books which are assigned for the course. The procedure, however, is different for students taking the courses at MLS and those taking courses at LCCC.
Students at LCCC - Students should obtain their books at the LCCC Bookstore. When the semester is completed, those students should return their LCCC Books to the LCCC Bookstore during the week of finals. Due to changes in funding, those books are the property of the Amherst Exempted Village Schools and must be returned at the end of a course. Failure to return those books will result in book fees being assessed to your student account at Amherst High School.
Students at MLS - Students taking CCP Courses at MLS will have their books provided for them in class. There is no need to travel to LCCC for purchase, all books will be provided by your instructor at MLS.
Amherst unveiled their new partnership with the College Board, SAT, and Kahn Academy. Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, Amherst will provide the full suite of SAT assessments to freshmen, sophomores, and juniors at no cost to parents!
In the fall during a school day, all freshmen will take the PSAT9, all sophomores will take the PSAT10, and all juniors with take the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT) to establish a baseline measurement for college readiness before the spring of their junior year. In addition, all juniors will be eligible to compete for recognition and scholarships through the National Merit Scholarship Program and access to over $180 million in worldwide scholarship opportunities.
And with the Kahn Academy partnership, Amherst students will use their PSAT baseline scores to create an official SAT practice program that is tailored and personalized for each student. For more information about the suite of SAT assessments and Kahn Academy, please view the information below:
