Lynchburg Beacon of Hope operates two Future Centers directly inside of LCS high schools. These Future Centers serve as post-secondary access hubs, working in partnership with school counseling and administration. The Future Centers operate during school hours and offer extended evening and weekend hours to accommodate working families. Each Future Center is staffed by a full-time director who serves as a navigator for student support services like promise scholarships, entrance exam preparation, financial aid assistance, post-secondary planning, resumes, college and career research, application support, soft skill development, job searches, mentoring, and more! Lynchburg Beacon of Hope equitably serves the entire student body with a universal approach by grade level and individual need.

Several stand-alone workshops are offered each year through the HHS and ECG Future Centers as follows:

  • Common Application Workshops

  • FREE Test Prep for the SAT, ACT, VPT, and ASVAB

  • Essay Extravaganzas

  • FAFSA Nights
