High school students can start on college coursework as a junior in high school thanks to the College Now program at Lincoln Land Community College. The college will be hosting an informational meeting for students interested in the program, along with their parents, on Monday.
Dee Krueger is the Director of the Lincoln Land Community College Taylorville Campus. She says the program allows students to work on college general education courses or specialized training before receiving their high school diploma.
Krueger says with the CNA program specifically, students can be working in the field right after or possibly before graduating high school.
The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Monday evening in room 1126 on Lincoln Land’s Taylorville campus. Those who attend will learn about student qualifications, program content, costs, and other helpful tips.
