What is the Liberty Partnerships Program?


Funded by the New York State Education Department, The Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) at Onondaga Community College offers a variety of support (academic tutoring, career/workforce readiness, mentoring, college prep and social/emotional support) to fit the needs of students in grades 7-12. Our goal is to ensure our students complete all the necessary requirements to eventually graduate from high school with a plan for life’s next steps.

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
