Welcome to Puente at LMC



The Puente Program was launched as a grassroots initiative to address the low rate of academic achievement prevalent among underrepresented students. The Puente model responds to low-performing patterns with two major components: rigorous English instruction and personal academic counseling.

Puente’s goals are to

    • Increase the number of underrepresented students who transfer to four-year colleges and universities
    • Enable underrepresented students to earn college degrees and return to the community as mentors and leaders
    • Embrace a variety of social and cultural learning-styles to develop an environment that focuses on underrepresented student learning
    • Improve college success and accessibility
