Lancer Summer Start for North Chicago Community High School Graduates

CLC’s Lancer Summer Start program gives North Chicago Community High School (NCCHS) students a head start to their CLC education – for free! New students needing to complete a pre-college math, English or English Language Instruction (ELI) course that leads to college-level classes are eligible to participate in Lancer Summer Start.

With Lancer Summer Start, NCCHS graduates can complete the College Success Seminar (CLC 120) and ANY math or English class at no cost. That means you’ll take a big step toward graduation and get ahead of students who wait until fall. NCCHS get all the same benefits of Lancer Summer Start, but get more choices in course selection!

  • Complete the CLC Student Admission Form and submit your transcripts and test scores.
  • Meet with your College and Career Navigator (CCN), Araceli Mena, to plan and register for your summer and fall classes. Select course formats, days and times that best fit your needs. Contact Araceli at (847) 543-2793 or
