• A message from Principal Kisha Derr:


    LEC is an academically advanced public high school located on the campus of Central Carolina Community College where students are challenged to maximize their personal and academic potential. Each student is provided an education that is personalized to meet their needs and help them achieve their goals.

    Students who apply, and are accepted, to LEC have the opportunity to complete a full College Transfer Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree by the time they graduate from high school.  During their time at LEC, students will take a blend of high school and dual enrollment college courses that will allow them to earn both a high school diploma and two-year college degree.


    As the principal of LEC, I am committed to the following:

    • To put the safety of students and staff before all else.

    • To hold myself, teachers, and ALL students to the highest standards of excellence.

    • To believe in each and every student and never lower the bar for success.

    • To provide the necessary resources to ensure academic success.

    • To provide fair, effective discipline to maintain the integrity of LEC.

    • To model ethical behavior and maintain transparent and honest communication with everyone.

    • To be reflective of my own past performance in order to improve to student outcomes.

    • To create a supportive school environment that is inclusive of all students, staff, and community members.

    I look forward to working with our talented students and staff to continue the tradition of academic excellence. I am excited to continue this amazing journey together!
