In order to prepare students for post-secondary opportunities, the College & Career Access Center seeks to provide exposure to a variety of resources and experiences designed to create awareness. To that purpose, beginning in the Fall of 2016, The CCAC will introduce a new initiative to Jackson County students.
In collaboration with the 13 Connected Community Schools and the three local Institutions of Higher Education (IHE): Baker College, Jackson College, and Spring Arbor University, the CCAC is bringing “Juniors Over the Local Circuit” to Jackson County High School Juniors. The three colleges, along with the CCAC, are combining support through transportation and lunches that will be provided to each student as they spend a day long circuit tour of the three IHE’s.
CCAC Advisors will work with counselors from their respective schools and the college admissions offices to coordinate the scheduling of each college visit. By the end of the program, every student will have been provided the opportunity to visit all three college campuses.
