Welcome to Liberty Partnerships Program

The Le Moyne College Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) is a collaborative project between the New York State Department of Education, Le Moyne College and the Syracuse City School District.

Who We Serve

Le Moyne LPP is one of 51 Liberty Partnerships Programs from throughout the state currently funded by the New York State Department of Education. Each year, Le Moyne LPP provides services to approximately 375 Henninger, Institute of Technology at Central, and Nottingham High School and Syracuse Academy of Science High School students.

Program Eligibility

Students must be New York State residents who are enrolled in grades 8-12; or under 20 years old and enrolled in a state-recognized High School Equivalency preparation program. Each participant must be identified as being at-risk of dropping out of school as measured by factors according to EDL ยง 612

Program Requirements

We ask all participants to regularly attend tutoring, classes, and/or academic support sessions, bring work to tutoring sessions, be on time for all activities, classes, and tutorial/academic support sessions. We also expect students to regularly participate in after school / extracurricular LPP programming. Finally, we ask students fill out a Personal Learning Plan yearly and a Social Emotional Assessment at least once during your time in the program.

I think LPP is a great program to join, especially if you’re having trouble in a certain class. The tutors will help you understand what you don’t know. It feels as if I’m in a special school, and no matter what I’m working on, when I leave, I do know what I am doing!
