It has been 6 years of fruitful cooperation of International University LCC, Klaipeda, Lithuania with First Сity Gymnasia of Cherkasy that lasts within the framework of the scientific-methodical program "The Dialogue of Cultures". LCC International University is a state and international Christian Liberal Arts university, established by a joint venture of Lithuanian, Canadian and American foundations in 1991. LCC International University is a permanent partner of our Gymnasia.

Thus, in mid-February, virtual presentations were organized to introduce studies at LCC to the potential students, currently 10th graders of our gymnasia who are thinking about their future university education. Lidiya Oryshchuk, Senior Admissions Counselor of LCC International University, recounted high school students the rules of admission and studies in LCC International University, which has proven to be a unique, innovative, interactive learning center, a leading Christian liberal arts university in Europe, renowned for its flourishing academic community, spiritual vitality, and global impact.

LCC is launching a new non-degree program for 10-12 grade high school students from around the world. It aims to provide students with an authentic experience of liberal arts university lectures, discussions, and group work online and completely free of charge. First City Gymnasia students have received invitations from LCC Academy https://lcc.lt/lcc-academy to join a series of practical webinars and lectures in English, which aim to challenge students with with new perspectives on world politics, travel, migration, leadership, crisis management, and many others. Weekly online lectures are followed by online discussion groups. Consequently, there is an opportunity to discuss and debate the topics, fine-tune writing skills and collaborate with peers from around the world. Students will be able to expand their outlook, enrich their vocabulary, improve their communication skills and develop critical thinking.

We look forward to further cooperation with LCC International University, expansion of business relationship and opportunities that the university provides to our high school students.
