Middle College info sessions held

(Release: January 2, 2014) - Program information sessions for the STEMM (science, technology, engineering, math, medical) Technical Middle College at Hagerstown Community College will be held on Saturday, Jan. 25 and Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014,  from 10 a.m. to 12 noon in the STEM Building, room 407, and again on Wednesday, Feb. 19, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the STEM Building, room 506.

The Middle College Information Session, originally scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 22, from 4 to 6 p.m., in STEM-506 has been canceled. Participants scheduled to attend that section are encouraged to attend one of the three remaining sessions on Jan. 25, Feb. 19, or Feb. 22.

HCC, working in partnership with Washington County Public Schools, developed the middle college to allow college-ready high school students the opportunity to earn up to 30 college credits and credentials such as certificates and associate’s degrees, while completing their high school diplomas. Juniors and seniors in the middle college attend school on the HCC campus. Students in ninth and tenth grade are enrolled in the STMC, as recruits, and must take significant math and science coursework at their “home” high schools to prepare them for their junior and senior years at HCC.

All students and parents who are interested in learning more about the HCC STEMM Technical Middle College program for the 2014-2015 school year are encouraged to attend one of these free information sessions. Seating is limited, so please call 240-500-2483 to reserve seats.
