Homeschool Families Invited to GCC Dansville Campus Center
Written by WBTA STAFF on May 23, 2018
For the homeschooled families who might have missed the special Information Session at Genesee Community College’s Lima Campus Center, another opportunity awaits you. Homeschooled students and their parents are invited to the Dansville Campus Center on Wednesday, June 27, 2018 from 4 – 6 p.m. to learn about GCC’s exciting opportunities for students who are homeschooled. Key college staff members who work with this student population will be available to educate family members and answer questions.
Homeschooled students have extensive opportunities to advance their education through GCC. Classes are offered in many subject areas and students under age 18 may take approved ACE (Accelerated College Enrollment) courses at a reduced tuition rate. ACE Program Specialist Dan Snyder, who works with many homeschooled students currently enrolled at GCC, will be at the session to provide information. GCC Admissions Director Lindsay Gerhardt will also be present to educate and answer any admissions questions families may have.
The afternoon event will include information about how GCC coursework can help homeschooled students earn the New York State High School Equivalency Diploma. Scholarship and financial aid information will also be available. Participants will also enjoy the opportunity to have refreshments at the Dansville Campus Center.
“Homeschooled students appreciate the many different courses and subject areas, but where classes are small and there is consistently excellent instruction with a low student to teacher ratio,” Associate Dean Amy Churchfield, who oversees GCC Campus Centers in Lima and Dansville said. “GCC is a perfect pathway for homeschool families to transition from their at-home learning environment to college-level curriculum that is rigorous, but also friendly and offers plenty of hands-on learning.”
Families will also have the opportunity to learn about Genesee Promise Plus Summer Scholarship program, which provides ACE students with one or two classes tuition-free to any of GCC seven campus locations or online. More than 140 courses are being offered this summer. GCC has three Summer Sessions: The full Summer session runs for ten weeks starting May 29 – August 11; Session I runs May 29 – June 30; and Session II runs July 9 – August 11.
The Dansville Campus Center is located at 31 Clara Barton Street, Dansville, NY 14437. For more information contact the Dansville Campus Center at (585) 335-7820.
