Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How does my child qualify for GATE?

The Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Program requires a recommendation form signed by the student's classroom instructor or school principal. The recommendation form is valid for (12) months from time submitted.  We do not look at report cards or test scores, so enrollment is easy. The A+ Classes are open enrollment for all students, no recommendation form required.

What if my child is home schooled, will they still be able to participate in the LCC Youth Program?

We welcome all students-public, private or home schooled. The home school parent/instructor is required to certify reading and comprehension levels for the grade level of the applicant.

Do we have to live in Ingham, Eaton, Clinton, Shiawassee, or Livingston counties to participate?

No, we welcome all students, including international visitors.

What supplies does my child need?

For most classes all supplies are included. Some specialty classes such as Youth Police Academy require a dress code and photography classes require the students to supply their own camera.

Is there Scholarship assistance available?

The Lansing Community College Foundation awards Scholarships based on donations from generous sponsors.

Scholarships are awarded to those qualify on a first-come-first serve basis, until funds are depleted. Scholarships are awarded to students who otherwise would not be able to attend based on family income. Certain Scholarships have criteria, in addition to family income, that must be met to qualify. If awarded, the Scholarship will pay for one class in full per youth. You must fill out a Scholarship Application to be considered.

Contact Ethan at the LCC Youth Program Office if you wish to be considered for a Scholarship. Ethan can be reached by email at or by phone at 517-483-9308.
