The LARE Institute, based out of Andover, has served the Merrimack Valley and surrounding areas for more than 40 years. This year, we hold a graduating class of over 130 students.

Our students earned certificates in a variety of our LARE Institute programs spanning from;  HiSET, Electronics Assembly, Business Technology, Certified Nursing Assistant, and Medical Assisting. But what makes the LARE Institute so unique & different is our signature WOW! Magic culture. Our Teachers approach each and every day with the same passion for excitement and FUN that guarantees that no day is boring.  In fact, the result of such attention to detail is that each person we serve has a greater opportunity to fall in love with learning that sets them on the path to creating more meaningful lives. Our WOW! Magic leads us to put in that extra effort, to go the extra mile and to put those we serve first.  It reminds us each and every day to Bring Out the Best in every person with whom we are working.  And by doing so, we show each Student just how much Every Life Matters.

Our annual LARE Institute Graduation Celebration is an opportunity to recognize our Students for their academic accomplishments. Our Students work hard to complete their programs of study and this year we will take all the social distancing measures necessary to ensure they have the opportunity to be recognized, acknowledged and celebrated for this.

We are so PROUD of the LARE Institutes Graduating Class of 2020!
