Laconia Academy Offers Diploma Courses

 For The Winter Semester 2016


Laconia Academy is the adult evening high school diploma program in the Lakes Region.  “This program provides adults with a “second chance” to earn a high school diploma,” states Mrs. Peggy Selig, Program Director.


Anyone interested in enrolling for the WINTER SEMESTER 2016 or learning more about the program is urged to call 524-5712 or stop into the Laconia Adult Education Office located in Room #805 at Laconia High School.


The Winter Semester 2016 classes start the week of January 11 – 14, 2016. The following courses will be offered: Applied Math, Science & Substance Abuse, 1930’s American Writers, Chemistry & Lab, U.S. History, Human Biology & Lab, Economics, Pre-Algebra, Anger & Stress Management, Short Story Tales, Algebra I, and Academy Math & Reading.


Laconia Academy also enables In-School Youth, enrolled in day high school programs, to take courses at night if they have failed classes during the day. With the principal’s permission, any In-School Youth may enroll at Laconia Academy. This cooperation with local area high schools helps prevent In-School Youths from dropping out of high school or having to repeat their senior year.


Students attending Laconia Academy can earn high school diploma credits in several different ways. Credit is given for previous high school credits earned and life experiences such as military service, work experience, apprenticeship training, correspondence courses, Certificate


Programs and homemaking. Credits are earned by passing courses at Laconia Academy. Laconia Academy is also approved for those eligible for V.A. benefits.     


One vital piece of paper needed at the time of enrollment is a copy of one’s high school transcript from the last high school attended. It is necessary in order to transfer those previously earned high school credits to one’s current record at Laconia Academy.


Bank of New Hampshire has established limited scholarship help for those students demonstrating financial need living in Laconia, Gilford, Meredith, Center Harbor, Plymouth, Bristol and Moultonborough. This scholarship help will enable students to return to school at night and complete their high school education.


The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation through the Adult Success Program Grant (ASP) and the ALTRUSA Club of the Lakes Region have also provided very limited scholarship help depending on real demonstrated financial need. Statistics show that one out of four adults in New Hampshire does not have a high school diploma.  You are not alone. 1,277 Lakes Region area adults have earned their high school diploma through Laconia Academy. Everyone knows how important an education is. Do this for yourself and invest in your future. Go back to school and earn a high school diploma.


Call 524-5712 to make an appointment or for more information. 



Thank You From The Gilmanton

Food Pantry & Thrift Shop


The volunteers at the Gilmanton Food Pantry & Thrift Shop extend a heartfelt and grateful thank you to everyone who made donations towards the holiday gifts and food baskets.  Every single can or box of food and every toy or item of clothing donated as well as the many monetary donations both large and small added to our ability to try to make Thanksgiving and especially Christmas a special day for some of our less fortunate families.


A special thank you goes out to Jeanne Gallant, Tammy Baiocchetti, Judy Wagner, and the Gilmanton Women’s Club for their large donations of food, clothes and toys.   If, in our haste, we did not get anyone’s name and address for a formal thank you note, please accept our apology and grateful appreciation.


Let us also mention that all donations, all year long, are appreciated and we wish to acknowledge and thank everyone who donates at any time of the year.  Thank you.


During the month of January, the Gilmanton Thrift Shop will continue the $7 bag sale.    There is still a large assortment of nice winter clothing.  Perhaps with the excitement of Christmas and the warm fall weather, something may have been overlooked.  Come by and see if you can fill a bag with those overlooked items.


Non-perishable food items are accepted all year long.  The need does not diminish because the holidays are over.  Donations may be dropped off at the Academy building, the Year Round Library, and at the Pantry during open hours.  Monetary donations may be brought to the Pantry or mailed to  Post Office Box 16, Gilmanton, N. H. 03237.


We at the Gilmanton Food Pantry wish each and every one a new year of health, joy, love and friendship.  Happy New Year!
