Rising high school juniors and seniors looking to get ahead on their college education at Tri-County Community College (TCCC) will gain the opportunity to become acquainted with the campus and meet TCCC faculty and staff at the Career and College Promise Pizza Party on June 22 on the main campus in Peachtree.

“The pizza party is a great way for our new high school students to see what Tri-County Community College is all about before they begin their classes with us in the Fall,” said Samantha Major, coordinator of recruitment and retention at TCCC.

According to Major, the Career and College Promise program offers opportunities for qualified local high school juniors and seniors to enroll in community college courses, tuition free. Local qualifying high school students are able to participate in two pathways: the college transfer pathway and the career and technical education certificates.

“The Career and College Promise program is a fantastic opportunity for students to gain the invaluable experience of being in a college setting, while earning credits for their post-highschool education, or gaining a certificate to ensure they’re ready for the job market upon their graduation,” Major said.

The event is designed for new Career and College Promise students and their parents and is scheduled for noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Harper Building, where students will gain important information pertaining to TCCC resources such as the student computer support lab, as well as receiving their student IDs for online and library access.

Students interested in attending the Career and College Promise Program Pizza Party should RSVP using the TCCC website, according to Major. (click here to RSVP)
