Lexington Two's nearly 500 graduates receive estimated $17 million in scholarships

WEST COLUMBIA, SC – As many of Lexington Two’s Class of 2024 graduates are heading to college campuses this fall, they are doing so with nearly $17 million in scholarships.


In addition to the scholarship dollars, the roughly 500 graduates from Airport High School and Brookland-Cayce High School also had other recognitions, including nearly 220 honor graduates with a GPA of 3.5 or higher and 375 LIFE and HOPE qualified scholarship recipients.


Career-bound graduates saved more than $200,000 by completing their training for professional certifications at the Lexington Two Innovation Center (L2IC) during the high school day, rather than taking the training post-graduation.
