Programs of Emphasis
Lexington Catholic High School provides a curriculum that educates the mind, spirit, and body of all students who choose a Catholic college preparatory education. Programs of Emphasis (POE) allow students to identify and explore areas they are passionate about or in which they have an interest. Within an area of interest, POE courses are traditionally recognized by colleges and universities that would aid students who decide to major in those interest areas.
POEs are not designed to constrain students to a single selection of courses. The program allows students to continue to develop skills in concentrations while following a normal course of rigorous studies. These courses enable the student to explore their interest in those areas and ultimately design a path that aligns with their future post-secondary goals and career interests.
Students are not constrained to a set of single POE’s requirements during this process of self-discovery. Individualizing a POE course of studies is possible through a student’s four years at LCHS. Students who complete a POE will be recognized at their graduation, and their transcript will indicate completion of the Program of Emphasis.
