Info and Mission




LAMPE Vision:


The goal of LAMPE is to develop global workforce leaders and innovators in media arts, and engineering.  The academy provides the foundation and tools to think critically, work collaboratively, solve complex problems, and synthesize innovations for the future.


LAMPE Mission:


LAMPE provides pathways that are facilitated by dedicated educators, staff, and community members who collaborate, utilizing applied project-based learning and leading-edge technology.  


LAMPE Description:


The Lancaster Arts, Media, Programming, and Engineering | Academy (LAMPE) is a certified Linked Learning Academy that provides students with the unique opportunity to learn through integrated lessons, apply knowledge through project-based learning, and develop career skills while still in high school. Within the academy, students select a pathway that interests them (media/programming or engineering), then follow a carefully designed curriculum that develops their critical thinking, problem solving, and technical skills. Academy teachers work together to support the lessons in each classroom, so students expand their learning across all classes, and apply their skills in the community. Through regular independent and collaborative projects, students master the use of 21st century technology, innovate creative solutions for modern problems, develop real-world job skills, and become the leaders of tomorrow.


About Linked Learning


Linked Learning is an instructional approach that provides students with academically challenging pathways leading to careers in high-need, high growth occupational sectors and prepares them to succeed in postsecondary educational institutions.  By design, Linked Learning pathways aspire to develop students' academic and industry-related knowledge and skills by engaging them in projects and course-work that blend career and technical education (CTE) content with a traditional core curriculum. They offer a sequence of rigorous coursework, integrated projects, and work-based learning experiences designed to develop students' abilities to pursue careers in a field of their choosing and in postsecondary education.
