What is the Liberty Partnerships Program?

The Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) offers opportunities to students in grades 7-12 who are at-risk of dropping out of school due to poor academic performance, low attendance, frequent discipline issues, and other factors restricting their scholastic achievement.  Here at OCC, our LPP program focuses on helping local students in the greater Syracuse area, and accepts students from the following schools:

High Schools

Middle Schools

Why you should join

If you are a student at any of our participating schools, we highly recommend you meet with your school's LPP rep and get involved with the program. Here are some reasons why:

  • We offer free tutoring, homework assistance, and individualized learning plans to help you get better grades.
  • We also help you plan for college and beyond, with things like SAT prep classes, resume development, interviewing workshops, job shadowing opportunities, and internships.
  • You'll be eligible for scholarships to OCC after you graduate high school.
