There are many benefits to taking community college courses while in high school (see the infographic below). Please remember that taking a college course also starts your college transcript, so only consider taking community college courses if you are ready.
Remember that we will be closed from December 16th - January 3rd. If you are already planning on taking a community college course, make sure to submit the concurrent enrollment form to your high school counselor before Thursday, December 12th.
