Community College classes

Did you know that high school students can take Community College courses for free?  Course must be appropriate for the student and meant to expand high school offerings, not replace them.  Interested students should be highly motivated and engaged as this would begin the college transcript and classes must be taken seriously.  See the Community College page for more details.

Additional opportunities

Many college and universities offer special programs for high school students during the summer.  These programs will vary in content, eligibility and cost.  Information that we receive about these opportunities will be posted here, however there is no program that we endorse.
