College Closing Early Monday / Closed Tuesday
Classes will be dismissed at 12:00 noon Monday and the campus will close at 12:30 p.m. Food services will be available until 12:30 p.m. Monday, 1/26.

The Lyme Academy College campus will remain closed on Tuesday, 1/27. A decision will be made about Wednesday, 1/28 classes as the situation develops. If the storm causes disruption in communications, please err on the side of safety as the campus will likely be closed.

We encourage students who live within a reasonable driving distance to go home BEFORE conditions worsen. Students who live along the shoreline are especially encouraged to go home, if possible, or stay with a peer further inland.

Please consider the storm basics listed in this American Red Cross preparedness flyer (PDF).

Scholarships & Financial Aid


The college offers both need- and merit- based scholarships. Roughly 96% of the student body receives some sort of financial aid. Scholarship priority is given to students who haven completed the application process by the suggested deadline for each semester.

All accepted students are automatically considered for scholarship. Merit scholarships are determined through a competitive evaluation of each applicant’s portfolio, transcripts, personal statement and standardized test scores, if applicable.

Other forms of Aid
Additional grants and scholarships are available through local organizations such as clubs, churches, employers and community organizations. Students are encouraged to research private scholarship opportunities in their area.
