The Lane Tech College Prep High School English department requires its students to complete four years of English courses for graduation. Two levels of courses are offered as options for much of the required coursework: Honors and Advanced Placement.

Students are also welcome to take part in many of the electives and activities that are taught and sponsored by the English Department, including student-run publications: Arrowhead, our yearbook; the Champion, our school newspaper; and 2501, our literary magazine. Additionally, we have numerous electives you can take in addition to your core English classes. Our department also sponsors one opportunity to travel abroad in support of studies.
