Welcome to Lafayette High School’s
College and Career Center
Lafayette is a large, suburban high school where our families expect their children to excel, to go to college (92% of our students go to college upon graduation), and to lead successful lives. The single most important way to assure yourself the best choice is to lay a solid foundation from the very beginning. The College and Career Center website contains information to help you build this foundation.
CLASS OF 2018: Please make sure to review the information in the April newsletter regarding final paperwork, final decisions and more.
