The LARC Program
The Long Beach Public Schools provides students with the opportunity to participate in the Learning Activities to Raise Creativity (LARC) program in grades 3-5. This program meets once each six-day cycle. All requests for dual enrollment services for non-public school students under Education Law § 3602-c must be made by parents/guardians to the Board of Education of the school district in which the family resides by June 1 of the preceding school year in order to be eligible for the services. Additionally, all parents or guardians of students attending non-public schools in Long Beach must request in writing to be screened for the LARC program.
